Martock&South Petherton surgery are going to use askmyGP to manage all patient requests.  See https://my.askmygp.uk/?c=L85007

The GPs assess each request and then decide on the most appropriate way to resolve the issue. This could be by telephone, face to face or via online messaging.

Although we will encourage patients to submit their requests online, please feel assured that you can still submit a request by phone or in person when you attend the surgery.

We are confident that askmyGP will provide everyone with better access to the surgery and ensure quality care is provided to all.

It's available 24/7 - we respond during working hours.

  • Due to the high level of demand we will endeavour to respond to requests as quickly as possible hopefully within 48 hours(2 working days), if the request is deemed as urgent it will be dealt with that day.
  • All our registered patients are welcome, and as a parent or carer you can use askmyGP on behalf of a patient
  • You can request a particular named clinician if you wish (as long as they are working that day)
  • You may prefer a telephone or email response.
  • You can login by clicking on the link above now, without any paperwork

Change to Prescription Request Process

From the 1st February 2020 , the prescription request telephone line (01935 826908)  open from 09:30-11:30 will be for prescription queries only, we will no longer take any prescription requests over the phone. Please do not be concerned, there are several alternate ways of requesting your prescription and all the reception and prescription staff will be more than happy to assist you.

This is as a result of a report by the National Patient Safety Agency which showed that there were significant additional risks associated with telephoned prescription requests vs requests by other mediums. There are several alternative means to request your prescriptions both using technology and utilising other agencies that can assist you in these requests.
