Welcome to Chilcote Surgery
Chilcote is a friendly, happy Practice, conveniently located on two sites in the St Marychurch and Westhill areas of Torquay. We work hard to achieve high quality patient care, putting you first and aiming to build up strong long lasting relationships between you and the Doctors and Nurses. We also maximise your choice as you can see either your usual GP or any other GP in the Practice, depending on your wishes.
Chilcote Surgery is at the forefront of providing modern general practice care in Torbay. We have a wide range of expertise from Specialist Nurses to GPs with specialist skills, and pride ourselves in keeping up to date. In partnership with the Peninsula Medical School, we are teaching the next generation of Doctors in our surgeries.
At Chilcote we give priority to being accessible throughout the day and we value you being able to book to see your chosen Doctor or Nurse in advance. We are committed to keeping you as well as possible through the use of preventative measures and treating people as individuals. Our aim is to empower you to make your own decisions about your health.
We take pride in our care at Chilcote and welcome new patients.
Would you like to take part in our Feedback Process?
We would like to encourage patients to give their views about the Practice and how we can improve. Would you be willing to participate in our Patient Consultant Group and be contacted by us periodically for feedback on our services?
To participate you can fill out an online version of the Patient Consultant Group form or, if you prefer, you can download the form, and once completed it can be returned to the surgery.
The reason for asking questions re ethnicity, etc. in the form, is to enable us to ensure a representative sample of views are sought.
Help us to make a difference! Please select either the downloadable print version of the form or go to the online version.
From Monday 17 June 2013 we are introducing our new GP appointments system called DOCTOR FIRST that will help you to get the appointment you need when you need it. If you want advice about a health problem just call the surgery and you will be put through to a GP or asked to leave your details for a telephone call-back from a GP. The GP will deal with your problem over the phone or book you an appointment for that day. You can use the telephone appointment system for urgent and non-urgent health problems.
We are very pleased to welcome our new GP Partner, Dr Funnell, to the practice, and we hope she enjoys many happy years here.
Can You Help?
Owing to increasing demand for our patient transport to the surgery and the hospital we are in dire need of more voluntary drivers. So if you have a car and could spare a few hours each week please let us know by using the link below.
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you.
