Yeovil Health Centre
Practice Manager: Kathy Eke
Yeovil Health Centre was one of the first three practices in south Somerset to join forces with Symphony Healthcare Services, in April 2016. The centre, previously under the management of the Pathways group, is located on the top floor of the Boots store within the Quedam shopping centre, in the heart of Yeovil.
There is a wide patient population at the health centre, which has grown rapidly over the last seven years to over 6,000 registered patients. The largest age group is currently between 20 and 50 years of age. Translation services are also on offer to help around a third of patients, who do not have English as their first language.
The health centre offers a wide range of healthcare services to patients and is has introduced 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.
Earlier this year, Yeovil Health Centre merged together with Oaklands Surgery on Birchfield road to offer healthcare services for registered patients across both locations, now one practice team cares for registered patients across both sites.www.yeovilhealthcentre.nhs.uk/
