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
London Marathon 2014
On April 13th, Dr Roger Bramley ran the London Marathon, completing the race in 3 hours 47 minutes. He was 8359th out of approximately 37,000 runners!
Dr Bramley was raising money for SENSE, a national charity supporting and campaigning for deafblind people, who run a residential home here in Seaton. The final total he raised is £2935. Click here to read more.
Dr Bramley would like to thank all the patients, staff and colleagues for their generous sponsorship and good wishes. He has wanted to run the London Marathon for many years and it was a fantastic experience.
Registration letters from NHS England - please respond if you get one
The NHS is carrying out work in Devon, Cornwall and the 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It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do get out of date over time.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.
