Mask wearing is now optional at the surgery, however, if you are feeling unwell we do still encourage all patients and visitors to wear a mask or face covering.
Face coverings primarily protect others, so doing so, is key to preventing spread of infection.
If you are seeing a clinician, and would be more comfortable if they wore a mask, they would be happy to do so. Please just ask.
When visiting, we're asking you to be positive about wearing masks...
To provide the highest standard of care to our patients and their families through a quality, safe and patient centred approach. To harbour an environment of trust, honesty and empathy and to value education, research and evidence based practice.
The present practice was formed in 1973 when a two-man practice working in Bovey Tracey formed a partnership with a single-handed doctor in Chudleigh. Since then the practice has grown steadily and now consists of eight partners. We are fortunate in being able to offer excellent facilities at Tower House Surgery in Chudleigh which was built in 1992 and at Riverside Surgery in Bovey Tracey which was completed in March 1995.
Our practice operates in compliance with the Data Protection Act 1998 and the Freedom of Information Act 2000. If you require further information about our compliance with these Acts, or on accessing your medical records, please enquire at reception.
Our premises at Riverside Surgery in Bovey Tracey and Tower House Surgery in Chudleigh are open at the following times:
Monday to Friday
8.30am to 1.00pm & 2.00 to 6.00pm
Timetables for both surgeries showing each doctor's consultation sessions can be found in our Surgery Times section.
Telephone service maintained between 1.00pm to 2.00pm
Enhanced hours appointments

In addition to our evening appointments, there will be weekend appointments available at Albany Surgery. Patients can see a Health Care Assistant, Practice Nurse, or GP.

Saturday: between 8am and 6pm
Consent to share your medical records
The Clinician you see will require access to your medical history in your records. When you book your appointment, you will be asked to consent to the sharing of your medical records. When you give consent, the only person who will be able to see your records is the Clinician at your appointment. Your consent will be valid for just 28 days from your appointment date.
If you do not wish to share your medical records, then unfortunately the weekday and weekend appointment service will not be suitable for you.
Parking and Disabled Facilities
Car parking is available in the nearby public pay-and-display car parks, which are within level walking distance of the surgeries. We also have limited parking spaces adjacent to the surgeries. Our purpose-built premises have facilities for the disabled.
