Practice Nurses

Our practice nurses hold surgeries each morning and afternoon Monday to Friday. They can treat or advise on:

Dressings, injections, blood tests, blood pressure checks, weight checks, travel advice and vaccinations.

They can also carry out chronic disease management and full health promotion screening. Please make an appointment at the surgery or by phone.

District Nurses

Our district nurses work closely with the doctors at the Apples and are able to provide treatment at home. The nurses can advise about care and convalescence after discharge from hospital. They can also advise on general health care and give help, information and support to carers. Messages for the district nurses can be left at reception or by telephoning their office at the Yeatman Hospital on number 01935 813991 and asking for the District Nurses.

Health Visiting Team

Our health visitors are located at the surgery, they can be reached by telephoning 01935 816 790. The best time to contact them is Monday - Wednesday between 8.00am -10.00am. Our receptionist can help if there is no reply, or a message can be left on their answer phone, 01935 816 790.

The health visitor's role is that of "The Family Visitor" concentrating mainly on the under 5's, but she is also available to see patients in all groups if needed.


Antenatal clinics are held on every other Tuesday afternoons.

The midwife cares for all expectant mothers, both before and after the birth of their babies. In some cases she may be involved with the births in Yeovil Maternity and at home as part of Oak Tree team.

Call the office on 01935 384808 and ask for a booking appointment.

Community Mental Health Team

The team members work closely with us to care for patients with psychiatric problems, enabling them to live in the community. They also help with the treatment of various problems such as depression, anxiety, stress-related illnesses, confusion and memory difficulties, and bereavement. They can also give support and advice to carers and family members. The team can be contacted on their own telephone number 01935 813991.

Cancer Care Nurse

The Cancer Care nurse works alongside the doctors and nurses to give advice, support and care to patients living with cancer. This help is offered either when cancer is diagnosed or at any time during the illness and extends to the whole family, if needed. The nurse helps the patient, their carers and any family to achieve the best quality of life. The nurse can be contacted via the Yeatman Hospital (01935 813991) or a message can be left for her at the practice reception.
