Ryalls Park Medical Centre

Marsh La, Yeovil BA21 3BA, UK – 01935 434000

I just want to thank all of the doctors and staff at Ryall Park surgery, I have been with the practice for 2 years now. I have been amazed by all of the kindness and respect that all of the staff give to everyone when they are so obviously busy and under pressure to deliver services to some really difficult people. Every single one of them do the very best they can and I for one totally appreciate what they have done for me over a very difficult couple of years. We the general public... Always are always so quick I think to complain, but never to praise. I cannot praise or thank them enough for what they have done and continue to do for me. So celebrate your success Ryall Park and long may it continue.
