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



From October 2018, local GP practices are working together to improve access to GP appointments in our local area, including evenings and weekends.  You can book an appointment at any of the participating local GP practices, but we do require your consent to share your full medical record with the clinician you are seeing.

To book an appointment, please phone us or call in to reception and we will provide you with a choice of dates, times and locations.  To see when our surgery will be open, please click here.


We are now taking bookings for flu vaccinations. If you are 65 and over or diagnosed with having coronary heart disease, diabetes, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, asthma, renal failure, have suffered a stroke, are a carer or are pregnant we strongly recommend that you have a flu vaccination. Please phone and speak to one of our receptionists after 11am to book an appointment.

Message from Mark Procter

Joint Director of Primary Care, South Devon and Torbay and NEW Devon Clinical Commissioning Groups and Head of Primary Care, NHS England South (South West - Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly)

“If you need to see or speak with a GP or someone else at the practice, you should contact your practice directly, or for urgent advice call NHS 111.

“Not all GP practices in Devon, Plymouth or Torbay are offering the 8am-8pm service this winter as recent patient satisfaction feedback on GP opening times suggests this isn’t needed for our area at this time.  In line with national policy this will be reviewed in the new year.

“As there are variations in GP practice opening times and practices aren’t open their usual hours, be prepared this Christmas.  Ensure you order your prescription medication in good time, keep your medicines cabinet well stocked with medicines that you can buy over the counter, ask your pharmacist for advice, or call 111.

“Existing out-of-hours arrangements for GPs continue as normal as normal every evening, overnight, over the weekends and bank holidays.  These are accessed by calling 111.  111 is available for everyone whether registered with a GP practice or not.”

(received 18th December 2017)


Here at The Seaton and Colyton Medical Practice we continually look at ways in which we can offer additional appointments to fit in with our patients. We are pleased to announce that with effect from the 3rd July 2017, we will be offering additional pre-bookable appointments from 7.30am - 8.00am. These appointments can be booked using our on-line access or by contacting the practice direct. Our GPs will also be making some additional telephone calls after 6.30pm, so if this suits you, then please let us know when requesting a telephone consultation.

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.

 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.
