Resurfacing Work to Colyton Health Centre Car Park
Please note that Colyton Surgery will be CLOSED on Monday 28th April 2014. All patients will be seen at Seaton Surgery.
Access to the car park will also be severely limited during the week of 28th April - 2nd May 2014.
We ask that patients try to avoid bringing cars to Colyton Health Centre and Grove Hill during the week while this work is in progress.
We apologise for the inconvenience.
We have been made aware that some of our patients have received an email purporting to come from NICE regarding cancer test results. This is a spam email and we suggest that you delete it and ignore it. For more information, visit the NICE website here
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
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It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do get out of date over time.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.
