The Practice has three modern, fully staffed surgeries providing all primary care services to the residents of the practice area and with a dispensary at each site. Our list size is approximately 7300 and we cover a practice area of 200 square miles. The main surgery, with the administration and support staff, is at Hemyock. Approximately five miles away, just across the Somerset border, is the Churchinford Surgery and the Dunkeswell Surgery is five miles towards Honiton. Patients are able to obtain appointments at any of our surgeries for the services provided as the Practice works as a single organisation despite the geographical spread on three sites. Patient information is available to doctors and nurses across the practice at whichever surgery appointments are made.

The Practice is well supported by a full complement of staff offering a high standard of care. Our practice nursing team is led by a nurse manager and includes the support of a health care assistant. The practice is run by the practice manager and an administrative team of medical secretaries, office staff including clinical audit and IT support, dispensers and receptionists.

This website has been designed to help you use the services offered by the practice. It is our aim to provide a high standard of medical care in a friendly and professional manner.

From this page you can find your way to all areas of the practice website.
