The patient Access website is run by Patient Access. It is linked into our surgery, but we cannot view or correct problems on your account.
Please contact them on the link below if you are having problems logging in. They will look at your account to diagnose problems, and may need to re-set your account at their end. They may tell you that you need to contact the surgery to re-set your pin/account here after they have done this. They will get back to you within 48 hours and can help diagnose a problem on your account that we have no access to deal with here.
Please follow the link for information or for help if you are having problems logging in please contact Patient Support in the 1st instance on https://support.patientaccess.com/

PATIENT INFORMATION UPDATE - From 2 July 2018
We have written to all our patients recently to explain important changes to the ways that healthcare services will be offered between Ilchester Surgery and Buttercross Health Centre.
Ilchester Surgery will become a branch surgery of Buttercross Health Centre, with the practice lists being merged into a single list and all patients will be registered at Buttercross Health Centre. This will happen automatically; patients are not required to take any action.
All patients will be able to book appointments with our extended healthcare team at both locations. For more information about the changes please read our;Frequently Asked Questions
The revised opening hours for Ilchester Surgery will be:
|Monday ||9 am - 4 pm (no lunchtime closure)|
|Wednesday||9 am - 4 pm (no lunchtime closure)|
|Friday||9 am - 1 pm|
On the days when Ilchester Surgery is closed, a full range of healthcare services will continue to run from Buttercross Health Centre for all patients. If you need medical advice or treatment please call the main appointment line: 01458 272473

During May, we ran a number of information and engagement events, for patients and their families to meet the team and share any ideas or concerns about the changes.
Thank you to the patients who attended; we have listened to your feedback and are grateful for your contributions.
If you were unable to attend the sessions, but have a question or a concern that you would still like to share, please ask the reception team at your local practice or email SHS.email@example.com and we will arrange a time for you to speak to our Practice Manager.
How can I get medical help, or advice when the surgery is closed?
If you require any medical assistance or advice outside opening hours, please visit your local pharmacy or call NHS 111. If you have a serious injury, or life threatening medical emergency you should call 999, or visit the hospital's A & E department.
