Practice Information

The practice was founded around 100 years ago, and was originally in Monmouth House, now part of Chard School. The present Medical Centre was developed in 1993, adjacent to the site of the old surgery and maintaining our town centre position. The surgery serves a catchment area of approximately 6-7 miles radius, where we aim to supply a high standard of health care and service for our community
