NEW patient services have been planned to start from February 12 in Milverton, after the village’s surgery closes its doors for the last time on February 9.

But some villagers are believed to be unhappy about the new venue, while community transport for patients who need to be taken to the practice’s main surgery in Wiveliscombe is still being finalised.

Lister House Surgery is closing its surgery in Milverton and has notified patients of new services and clinics that will take place at an alternative venue in the village.

A timetable of new services has been advertised to patients of the surgery, to take place at Creedwell Orchard Meeting Hall in Milverton.

Twice weekly clinics on Mondays and Thursdays will be provided by members of the practice team, and pre-ordered medication will also be able to be collected there on the scheduled dates.

The forthcoming clinics advertised will include blood pressure checks, and there will also be an inhaler technique group session and scheduled times when the village agent will be present.

Ongoing clinics will be advertised at the main surgery building in Wiveliscombe, on the practice website and via the Milverton Parish Magazine and Wivey Messenger.

Patients wanting to attend a clinic or collect medicines from Milverton will need to book in advance through the Wiveliscombe surgery.
