About Us

Tawstock Medical Centre – A forward thinking family orientated training practice, set in a state of the art building in the heart of the beautiful South West of England. A team who are passionate about Primary Care and making a difference for our patients, every day.

Managing Partner Dr Inge Alberts and Partner RN Angela Bush welcome you to Tawstock Medical Centre’s (TMC’s) about us page.

TMC is located in Chard, Somerset, Chard falls on the outskirts of Somerset while sitting close to the boarders of both Devon and Dorset. The practice provides general medical services to the residents of Chard and the local surrounding villages.

TMC was established in Chard in 1994 and has steadily grown over the last 25 years time to become the practice that you see today. Tawstock Medical Centre is a two partner practice with just over 7000 patients. We moved to our purpose built state of the art building in 2014 and have recently had a conversion to add an additional 2 consultation/treatment rooms to our site. In addition to housing routine medical services we also have a treatment room which is used for minor operations. Many community team members (including Counsellors, Somerset Drug Service, Midwives, leg ulcer clinic, research, and palliative care) operate from our site and contribute towards the care we can offer and are able to deliver to our patients. We aim to deliver excellent care that enhances patient’s health and well-being in addition to our own. We work under contract to NHS Somerset to provide care to each of the patients registered at our practice.

We have a dedicated and enthusiastic team which is lead by the practice Partners who are responsible for and oversee all the care of their patients. We are proud of the team we have and the difference we can make to the patients we care for every day while working together to achieve our practice vision and values as a team.

We also are positively contributing to collaborative work within our primary care network and look forward to the increasing opportunities ahead. Our population is also well supported by our own PPG, and superb community volunteer groups.

TMC was proud to be rated good by the CQC in 2016. Please see the full report below.
