Did you know...? Some interesting information from Somerset Local Medical Council

Your General Practice gets paid £73 a year for looking after you: less than pet insurance. General practices do 90% of the work in the NHS on 7.4% of the budget.  10 years ago it was 10% of the budget. There were 340 million GP consultations last year, up from 300 million 5 years ago.

Online Services Expanded - Access to medical records

Axbridge and Wedmore Medical Practice has offered online services for its patients since 2010. Originally this was just available to request repeat prescrptions but then later expanded to allow patients to book or cancel appointments with a GP and update personal details (e.g. address, telephone number etc.) The latest edition to our online services is the facility for registered patients to access a summary of their medical record.

Wedmore and Axbridge Community Health Fund

The Fund is a local registered charity, set up 25 years ago, to raise money to provide equipment and services to benefit patients of the Axbridge and Wedmore Medical Practice.  Because of the generosity of many people we have raised over £200,000 in those 25 years. To find out more click here.


How you can help us to help you

To enable us to prioritise and address your health care needs, reception staff will need as much information as possible to pass on to clinicians and this will give the optimal opportunity to assess your needs. For example, you may need a blood test before seeing a doctor, or, you may need to see a doctor sooner than you expected, or, you could be reassured that it is appropriate and safe to wait for a routine appointment. All information given to staff and clinicians is treated as strictly confidential and in your best interest. So please, explain to reception staff whenever you are making an appointment what your medical issue is and they can assist you more effectively and efficiently.

Latest Information - NHS "care.data" programme

Information about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care. It is important that we, as a GP practice, keep you informed about this. The NHS can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. The NHS would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care not only with us but also, hospitals and community services, to help provide a full picture. This will allow the NHS to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best. Click here to read more.
