Welcome to Chagford Health Centre Onlinechagford_square_470x353.jpg

The doctors and staff at Chagford Health Centre in Devon are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.  We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

There have been doctors practicing in Chagford since at least 1804. The current Health Centre was purpose-built in 1979 and underwent major alterations in 1983, 1991 and 1998. It has both access and toilet facilities for the disabled plus a toilet for wheelchair users.



Drs Wood and Dr Claridge are both trainers .This means that Doctors who have decided to specialise in General Practice will come to work at the practice as part of their final training.  The usual training for a GP is an extra 3 years, having completed at least 2 years foundation  in hospital.  They will then be attached to the practice either for 6 or 12 months . Sometimes this time various due to certain circumstances: part time or returning to complete their training after maternity leave.


Registrars will be running their own clinics for the majority of their attachment under the supervision of either Dr Wood or Dr Claridge.  At times the registrar may wish to video consultations to be able to review and learn from their experiences as part of their training.  All patients will be asked to give consent to this, however this is not compulsory and if you dont feel it would be appropriate to be videoed then this will not affect your ongoing care with the GP.

At present we have Dr Emily Eracleous - Dr Claridge's registrar attached to our practice and she works part time  on a Monday,Tuesday and Thursday (full days) and some Wednesday mornings. Emily will be with us until September 2014.

Noticeboard

Not always Accident and Emergency:

Injured or unwell? Don't just go to A&E if it's not a serious emergency.

There are an increasing number of cases where patients are using A&E services rather than using either their GP, Pharmacy, or other more appropriate services. Click on the link below and following the prompts to guide you to appropriate services in your area depending on the condition you are presenting with:

Registration letters from NHS England – please respond if you get one

The NHS is carrying out work in Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all.

If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes. Changes can be made by returning the form in the prepaid envelope. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, by freephone, via text message or online.

It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do get out of date over time. If we don’t have an accurate record of your name and address, then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with important information.

We may also need to contact you:

· with test results

· to invite you for bowel, breast or cervical screening to protect against cancer, for example

· to offer vaccination against infectious diseases such as flu or measles, mumps and rubella

· to give you an appointment as part of your plan to stay healthy if you have a long-term illness

Please respond to the letter within four weeks, so the NHS can be certain about your details. Otherwise, the NHS will assume that you have moved away, and begin the process to remove you from the practice list.
