Practice Manager: Julie Salter
Ilchester Surgery was one of the first three practices in south Somerset to join forces with Symphony Healthcare Services Ltd back in April 2016, when the existing GP partners retired from the surgery.
Ilchester Surgery is renowned for its friendly service for the local community of Ilchester and surrounding area, including families and ex – forces from nearby RNAS Yeovilton. The surgery can offer a wide range of healthcare services to patients and is successfully operating the new models of care developed under the Symphony Programme, where Health Coaches positively support both patients and GPs to provide additional guidance, information and coordination of care services.
In July 2018, Ilchester Surgery became a branch surgery of Buttercross Health Centre , with both practice teams joining together to become one larger team, to provide healthcare services across both locations. All registered patients are now part of one patient list and are able to use healthcare services at either location.
All GP appointments are now offered at Buttercross Health Centre with a regular clinic services and Nurse practitioner service running at Ilchester Surgery, two and a half days a week.
In 2018 a new pharmacy hub was launched as trial to make improvements to the way that medicines are managed and the team are based at Buttercross Health Centre. The hub is led by a trained pharmacy team who are able to review regular medications for long-term health conditions, provide patient advice in any medication and review health records. The team are now looking after services for four SHS practices to relieve workload pressures on our GPs.
