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/speak to 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 see your chosen Doctor or Nurse. 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.

Welcome to Dr Leanne Bellamy
We are delighted to welcome Dr Leanne Bellamy as a new full time partner at Chilcote from February 2015. She will be working Monday - Thursday, mainly at the Dewerstone site.
Dr Bellamy says:
I am really looking forward to working at Chilcote Surgery. I was born and raised in Torquay, moving to London to complete my training at Imperial College London in 2007. I moved back to Torquay this year after completing my GP training in East London. I have a specialist interest in drugs and alcohol and maternal medicine, as well as education, training and research. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, travelling around Europe and cycling and walking around Devon.
Electronic Prescription Service
IMPORTANT CHANGE TO NHS PRESCRIPTIONS SERVICE AT CHILCOTE SURGERY
From 11 Nov 2014, your GP would like to send all prescriptions electronically to your nominated Pharmacy.
What is the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)?
Over 1.5 million prescriptions are printed every day in England alone. EPS offers a reliable, secure and confidential alternative to printing. It gives you the chance to change how your GP sends your prescriptions to the Pharmacist you choose to get your medication or appliances from.
What does this mean for you?
