Providing the very best in NHS healthcare for patients living within South West England

Covid-19 UPDATE

We are currently unable to provide procedures requiring an inpatient stay in hospital. We continue to offer day case procedures and clinic appointments with our specialists. Whilst we are doing all we can to reduce waiting times, please be aware that there are many patients waiting as a result of the pandemic, which we are treating in clinical priority and then date order.

Your health, your choice

Somerset Surgical Services (SSS) is an independent provider of NHS care sharing the facilities of Weston General Hospital. Our team dedicates itself to providing knowledgeable patient services with excellence of care and compassion in a timely manner.

High quality care

All of our Surgeons hold a substantive NHS post and are registered with the General Medical Council. Our clinical team are all specialists in their field of practice and pride themselves on delivering first class patient care.

We aim to provide short waiting times for outpatient appointments and theatre procedures and have regularly maintained excellent RTT (referral-to-treatment) performance against National standards. Advanced surgical procedures and bespoke treatment plans allow streamlined management of care pathways by designated co-ordinators.

A return to health

We know that having a surgical procedure or medical treatment can be a challenging time and that continuity of care is important when attending for hospital appointments. At Somerset Surgical Services your surgeon will be with you from the initial consultation to discharge back to your GP.

Facilities and locations

SSS deliver outpatient services from Weston General Hospital and for some specialties, The Marina Healthcare Centre, Portishead and Yeo Vale Medical Centre, Langford. All surgery is undertaken in the theatres within Weston General Hospital; these fully equipped facilities allow us to provide excellent clinical care throughout the treatment pathway. We have full access to the immediate on-site back up of Intensive Care and High Dependency Units provided at Weston General Hospital.

Full range of treatments

SSS works in collaboration with University Hospitals Bristol & Weston NHS Foundation Trust (UHBW) to provide services which complement and enhance those already available. Somerset Surgical Services reinvests income into UHBW making a significant contribution to sustaining local NHS services.

Using a patient centred approach, we offer a wide range of surgical and medical treatments which are not routinely offered at Weston General Hospital, please see specialties:
