Buttercross Health Centre and Ilchester surgery are research practices.

We collaborate with other Symphony practices, Yeovil District Hospital, the National Institute of Health Research, and academic units across the United Kingdom. Our aim is to support and generate research to improve our knowledge about and management of conditions presenting in primary care.
