Welcome to Chagford Health Centre Online
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 Carly Gurr attached to our practice and she works full time. Dr Gurr will be attached to our practice until August 2015, her trainer is Dr Peter Wood.
