Welcome to the Seaton and Colyton Medical Practice
The Seaton and Colyton Medical Practice is based on two sites and provides a full range of primary care services to patients who reside within the practice boundaries. Both surgeries have disabled access.
We have five doctors working as an unlimited partnership supported by a full primary health care team. The team includes practice nurses, healthcare assistants, a community healthcare worker, community nurses, midwives, health visitors, counsellors and a physiotherapist, plus a full team of administration staff.
Our aim is to provide a high quality service that is sympathetic to the needs of our patients. The standard care will include health promotion advice, referral as appropriate and reflect patient choice wherever practicable. We aim to work with our patients to encourage patient responsibility for his or her well being

On Sunday 12th March 2017 Dr Mark Welland, Dr John Twaddle and Dr Katie Seaver took part in the Grizzly to raise funds for the Seaton & District Hospital League of Friends. Should you wish to sponsor our GPs, we have sponsorship forms available at both the Seaton and Colyton Surgeries.
Named Accountable GP
All our patients are free to see any GP of their choice, but each patient has a named accountable GP on their clinical record, and this is the GP they are registered with. If you are unsure who this is then please ask at reception. This GP has overall responsibility for you care, but you can request an appointment with any doctor that is available.
The charity has a website, which you can reach here

Friends and Family Test
The Friends and Family Test (FFT) was introduced in 2013 as a method of asking patients whether they would recommend healthcare services to their friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment. From the 1st December 2014 this Practice will be using this patient feedback to recognise success and to identify areas for improvement. The FFT does not replace the current NHS complaints procedure or any other form of feedback regarding healthcare services.
Patients who have a consultation with a GP or another member of staff employed by the practice can fill in the FFT form either on line by clicking here or in paper format. Forms will be available at the practice and may be given to patients in their own homes. Your consultation can include home visits, telephone consultations or appointments or even contacting the surgery to request a prescription or some other information. We are interested in your experiences and if you wish you can fill in a form each time you have contact with the practice.
Your feedback will be publicised and used to help us ensure our service meets your expectations.
