Dr Sarah Russell

Dr Russell has changed her days of work to Monday mornings, Tuesday all day and Wednesday afternoons.

Patients who are outside our area

The practice is not currently taking part in the voluntary scheme to register patients outside of our practice area.

Periodically our doctors will review their lists of patients and look at those who are registered here but are outside our practice area.  If you are not currently receiving ongoing care for a current episode of illness or your health is currently stable and well managed, we will write to you to ask you to register with a doctor who covers your area.

We are currently going through this process and some of our patients will receive letters asking them to register elsewhere.  We do appreciate that moving surgeries can be upsetting but in the longer term getting to know your new practice and building a relationship with your doctor will be beneficial should you become ill in the future.

If you are not sure where your nearest surgery is you can find the closest services to you at NHS Choices

Dr Matthew King

We would like to thank everyone for their patience, understanding and support.  Thank you also  for the cards and gifts that have been handed in to reception.  These have been passed on to Mat who has been overwhelmed by your kindness, thoughtfulness and generosity.  

Mat says:

Together with friends I have been “training” for the Camino by walking on Dartmoor, walking sections of the South West coastal path, and selected circular walks in East Devon. My kit list is sorted, flights are booked, and feet have thicker skin. I fly to Biarritz, and then by bus and train to St Jean Pied de Port which is the starting town to the north of the Pyrenees. 

If anyone might be interested, a charity donation site has been set up by my family.  The charity is FORCE which seems very appropriate in the circumstances as well as my wife working there as a cancer care counsellor.
