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

She says it has been a privilege to serve the Community as a GP for 22 years and will miss you all.

We are pleased to announce, that on Monday 18th April, we will be welcoming our new GP Partner, Dr John Twaddle. Dr Twaddle was previously a GP Partner in London and we are delighted he is joining us here at the Seaton & Colyton Medical Practice. Following the retirement of Dr Peta Webb, all patients who were registered with Dr Webb, will be transferred to Dr Twaddle.
On Sunday 13th March 2016, Dr Mark Welland and Dr Joe Kent successfully completed the gruelling 20 Mile Grizzly to raise funds for the Seaton & District Hospital League of Friends. Both completed the course in 3hours 20mins, raising in excess of £1,300 plus gift aid for the League and its work supporting Seaton Hospital and for the Seaton Friends Hospiscare at Home Team, which is also funded by the League. Dr Welland and Dr Kent would like to express their appreciation and thanks to all those who supported and sponsored them for this event.
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.
