Somerton House, with the support of Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (BSW CCG), has suspended the registration of new patients with effect from 14 December 2021.
We are experiencing overwhelming demand on our services and we have not been able to fill GP vacancies due to a national and local shortage of GPs. The temporary suspension of new patient registrations will enable us to maintain a quality and safe service to our existing patients.
The Practice will continue to register newborn babies of registered mothers or immediate relatives in the same household of patients already registered at the practice.
We hope this temporary suspension will be short term and last no more than three months. The practice website will be updated when we are ready to start accepting new patients again.
The following GP surgeries in the local area continue to accept new patients who live within their practice boundary or you can check the website www.nhs.uk/service-search/find-a-GP to help you choose another practice to register with.
