The Practice operates from two surgeries, Starcross and Exminster. The Practice computer system changed to SystmOne in January 2015 and is used by a majority of Practices in Devon and helps with forwarding patients information when they change surgeries. The Practice is paper light, with the majority of current notes scanned on the computer, allowing paperless consultations.
The GPs work out of both surgeries. The receptionists are able to work at both surgeries, allowing flexibility to cover leave.
We are well supported for out of hours work by Devon Doctors on call. This is a successful out of hours service that operates to an extremely high standard.
The Practice is based in the Teignbridge District Council area, although spiritually, we refer to Exeter for the majority of our services. The Practice is part of Exeter Primary Care which provides access at weekends and evenings for patients in Exeter to see a GP or nurse 7 days a week.
We have a strong complex care team which meets monthly in a multi disciplinary team meeting which is proving to be very successful.
