Dr Rachel Mann

MB ChB MRCGP DRCOG DFFP

I qualified from Leicester University in 1990, and started as a half time partner at the Westbank Practice in 1997.

I thoroughly enjoy General Practice especially continuing care and developing relationships with patients that enable them to maximise their health and well being.

When I am not at work, I'm to be found doing lots of family things, walking the dog, gardening, meeting friends, shopping.

Dr Nimita Gandhi

MB BS MRCGP DCH DRCOG DFSRH

I joined the Practice as a partner in July 2014.

I qualified in medicine from King’s College Hospital in London in 1990, and then worked in General Practice in London & Southampton. My husband’s appointment brought us to wonderful Devon in 2001. With a young growing family, I thoroughly enjoyed working part-time in general practice in Exeter, during which time I helped to organise medical educational meetings. As our two children grew older, the time seemed right to increase my professional commitment, and I am thrilled to be part of the Westbank practice.

I enjoy the variety that general practice offers, and in particular, the ability to work together with patients, to jointly improve health. I like to strive to keep up-to-date with medical developments, and, with my partners, to ensure that our patients receive all modern care available.

During my spare moments, I enjoy experimenting with vegetarian cuisine, and circuit training at the gym (to burn it off).

Dr Liz Evans

BMBS MRCGP DFSRH DCH

I have enjoyed being a part of The Westbank Practice since January 2016 as a salaried GP. I graduated locally from Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry in 2009, and had my first proper exposure to general practice here, at Starcross Surgery, as their first Foundation Stage 2 doctor! I was struck by the compassion of the team, and the wonderful working relationships between the staff and patients. Needless to say I jumped at the chance to return when a position became available.

I have additional interests in family planning, sexual health, and child health. I fit contraceptive coils and implants. I have a young family of my own, and you'll find me in Exminster surgery on Monday and Wednesday.

Dr Toh Wong

MBChB (Hons) MRCGP DCH DRCOG

I qualified in 2001 from the University of Leicester Medical School and have worked in various parts of the country before coming to Devon in 2006, where I worked in various local practices as a locum. I joined the Westbank Practice as a partner in October 2008. I think this practice has one of the best populations with regards to staff and patients that I have worked with in General Practice.

I have particular medical interests in internal medicine, ophthalmology, and medical acupuncture. I enjoy most of medicine and work regularly with Devon Doctors - the out of hours GP service.

Dr Katrin Cole

State exam med, DGM MRCGP DRCOG

I grew up in Germany and qualified in medicine from Jena university in 2003. At that point, I moved to Exeter where I undertook my postgraduate and General Practice training. Having worked at Westbank Practice since 2011, I became a partner in 2014. What I enjoy most about General Practice are the working relationships with patients and the variety my job offers.

I live in Exeter with my husband and 2 sons. In my spare time, I enjoy reading, playing the piano and exploring the Devon countryside.

Dr Bel Stanley

MB BS DFFP

I qualified in 1990 from St Thomas' Hospital medical school, London. After working in Cornwall then Chichester, I became a partner in General Practice in Southbourne, near Chichester. After 5 years in Southbourne, I met my husband-to-be, a Devonian born and bred, and moved back West to settle down.

I have enjoyed working as a salaried GP at the Westbank Practice since 2001. I have special interests in women's health, family planning, IUCD fitting and acupuncture.

I love just being with my family (two boys, husband and dog), and we get up to all sorts of different adventures in our time off. We particularly love playing on the water, on any board or boat.
