Shepton Mallet NHS Treatment Centre provides elective surgery, enabling the NHS to prioritise primary and emergency care. Because of this our patients are unaffected by NHS cancellations of surgeries.

Our additional capacity helps alleviate pressure on NHS surgery waiting lists which both decreases patient waiting times and reduces the NHS’ workload.


Refer to us icon 4Some patients wish to pay for their own care – we offer affordable treatments to self pay patients while maintaining the same level of quality for everyone, regardless of how their care is funded.


Refer to us icon 3Due to exceptional pain and discomfort, or outstanding work commitments, it may not be feasible for some patients to wait for treatment – we aim to see both NHS and Self Pay patients fast.


Refer to us icon 5Our care continues after a patient’s surgery. Within a day of treatment we contact the patient to check that they are recovering well – we also inform their GP, letting them know the patient has been discharged.
