Green Impact for Health
Glastonbury Health Centre is pleased to announce its involvement with the Green Impact For Health Scheme. This is a national project designed to help GP practices and the NHS become more environmentally friendly and sustainable whilst also benefitting patients.
We are currently promoting inhaler recycling – look out for posters around the practice and ask your pharmacist about recycling your old inhalers. Currently Boots in Glastonbury High Street and Tesco Pharmacy on Wirral Park Road are taking part in the scheme.
Watch this space for more green ideas!
Please note that Glastonbury Health Centre no longer accepts prescription requests by phone. You are still able to request repeated medication by hand, by post or (if you are signed up) via the online request service. Some pharmacies can also request medication on behalf of their customers - please discuss this with your pharmacist.
Since 1st April 2015, all patients registered at the health centre have had a named accountable GP. Please ask at reception if you wish to know who your named GP is. Read more...

Patient Participation Group
Did you know we have a Patient Participation Group?
The aim of the group, which should be representative of our patient ages and genders, would be to meet with the GP Partner Dr JX Meguer to discuss our services, suggest new services and review our surveys. We would rely on the PPG to help us focus on service direction and improvement. The group meet three times a year at the health centre. If interested, or would like more information, please click here to contact us.More Information
