Grove House Surgery is a four-partner semi-rural practice situated between the Mendip Hills and the Somerset Levels. We practice from our own premises, opened in 1991, and have a steadily expanding list of about 6400 patients.

We belong to a well established Central Mendip Federation of five practices, and as such we work closely with the recently formed interim GP commissioning group board.
We are a busy practice, with a full working day. We make extensive use of the facilities at our nearby Community Hospital, including in-patient beds, outpatient clinics, minor A&E, physiotherapy, X-ray, chiropody and occupational therapy.
As well as managing patients in the local community hospital, we also look after a number of nursing and residential homes and homes for adults with learning disability. We are also fortunate to have access to the Shepton Mallet Treatment Centre which provides investigations and procedures locally.
Out of Hours work is covered by our local co-op, NESDOC.
The Registrar has his/her own consulting room, participates fully in all practice activities and attends the Bath Day Release Course on Wednesdays in term time. There is a lot of enthusiastic teaching with regular tutorials, joint surgeries and visits, video-recording and informal instruction.
All the facilities of Bath and Bristol are within easy reach and there is the added attraction of being in the country. There are ample opportunities for sport and outdoor pursuits. Shepton Mallet is widely known for the excellence of its restaurants, and for the Glastonbury Festival at nearby Pilton.
