Please note that due to the coronavirus we are deferring all appointments for further care. The progression of the virus throughout the region will determine when we can re-start seeing routine patients again. We do hope that we can get the service up and running and soon as possible.
Should you feel that your symptoms are causing you serious concerns or that you feel you cannot wait for further contact please do contact your GP as soon as possible or in an emergency situation please attend your local Accident and Emergency Department.
Once we are in a position to resume the service we will be in touch with patients individually.

Providing the very best in NHS healthcare for patients living within South West England
Like all providers of elective care, we are postponing outpatient appointments and elective procedures as our staff and facilities are needed to treat the COVID-19 outbreak. Please bear with us. We will continue to accept referrals and will treat everyone in date order as soon as we are able to. Please follow government advice regarding isolation and social distancing, and stay safe.
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.
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.
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.
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.
SSS works in collaboration with Weston Area Health Trust to provide services which complement and enhance those already available. Somerset Surgical Services reinvests income into Weston Area Health Trust 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:
