About Us

Somerset Surgical Services Limited (SSS) is an independent healthcare provider, established by local NHS clinicians and registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The Registered office for the business is Gosforth Park Avenue, Newcastle upon Tyne, NE12 8EG and the company registration number is 7692583.  SSS is a sister company to Tyneside Surgical Services (TSS) established in 2007 and Manchester Surgical Services (MSS) established in 2009.

Somerset Surgical Services aim is to provide the very best in healthcare to patients living within the South West of England.  Drawing on our considerable experience we have been able to select the exceptional aspects of healthcare delivery both in the NHS and the private sector and put this into every day practice. 

A key part of our service is that we operate within an acute District General Hospital (Weston General) and all of our patients have immediate on-site access to the full range of service back up if required. This means that our patients can expect a premier experience within SSS from booking through to surgery and recuperation with the full knowledge that back up services are on hand if needed.

Knowledge of, and engagement with, the very best performing local consultant surgeons and anaesthetists gives us a particular advantage when advising on surgical treatment for our patients.

Our lead clinicians are able to design and implement care pathways for patients that are evidenced based, and, because we are an independent healthcare provider, can be initiated without the constraints that sometimes exist in the NHS.
