Welcome to Polden Medical Practice

We provide comprehensive NHS primary care services to help you manage your health and well-being.

Our aim is to provide a high quality, caring and personal health care service to our whole patient population by:

  • Putting our patients at the centre of what we do
  • Having a highly qualified and trained multi-professional integrated primary Healthcare Team
  • Offering our services in a safe, supportive and suitably equipped environment, using technological advances in healthcare systems for our patient’s benefit.


Owned and run by the NHS, the NHS App is a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet — including prescriptions and appointments.

Know who to turn to for your healthcare

We want to help you get the right medical assistance when you’re ill, injured or have a long term condition. Going directly to the person with the appropriate skills is important. This can help you to a speedier recovery and makes sure all NHS services are run efficiently.

Access to the surgery

Both Dispensaries will be closed for staff training on Thursday 17th June 21 from 1pm to 5pm.  The remainder of the surgery remains open.
Whilst Polden Medical Practice continues to remain open and accessible to all, including our dispensaries, we would like to remind patients that we are still in a National pandemic and the use of online consultations and telephone calls are required prior to any face-to-face appointments.  Please only come into the building if you need to collect items from the dispensary or have a pre-booked appointment.  Please help us to maintain social distancing rules for all of our staff and patients.
