FREE DELIVERY SERVICE FOR YOUR MEDICATION....

If you are a patient who has their medication dispensed from our Dispensary in Tavistock and you have trouble in coming into the Surgery to collect your medication, we can now deliver your medication direct to your door.

If you are not a patient who has their medication dispensed by us BUT you live more than a mile from a Pharmacy you would be able to take advantage of this service. If this applies to you and you would like to change and let us dispense your medication to you please let us know and we will deliver it for you now!!

ADVANCE APOLOGIES FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE CAUSED


From Monday 17th September we will be undertaking some major building works in order to improve the services we offer you.

This will take approximately six months and will involve major disruption in our car park and for a period of time a temporary entrance.

This means our car park will ONLY be available to disabled patients, patients with severe walking difficulties, taxi drop-off and those patients just collecting their medication from our Dispensary.

We would ask that all other patients please either park in Plymouth Road or The Bedford Car Park and then cross over to the Surgery.

Thank you in advance for your kind understanding.

University of Plymouth
This Healthcare Organisation is working together with the University of Plymouth, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry to host students (Medical, Dental and / or Physician Associate) to assist with their learning.  You may be asked to talk to or be seen by a student either with the doctor or nurse or on their own.  The student will introduce him or herself and ask to discuss your medical problem and examine you. 

Students are supervised at all times by the placement supervisor and a health care professional, usually your doctor.  Like qualified practitioners, the students guarantee your privacy and confidentiality.  You may find helping students in their learning interesting and stimulating. 

The students and the Faculty appreciate your contribution to the education of future doctors, dentists and physician associates.  If you would like to make any comment or have further questions, please speak to a member of staff.

Do patients have to accept?
If at any stage you DO NOT wish to be seen by the Medical, Dental or Physician Associate student you may decline the offer.  You DO NOT have to give a reason and your care will not be affected in any way.

On-Line Access

Another reminder that you can register to log on from the comfort of your home to order your repeat prescriptions and book appointments with the Doctors.

We are unable to put the Nurse appointments on there due the varying appointment times needed dependant on your clinical needs.

The new enhancement is that you can now log-on and view your medical record summary, your medication, your hospital letters and your investigation results.

Services

We would value your opinion on what medical services you would like to see developed in Tavistock so that we can share your ideas with other Practices now working with us as West Devon Primary Care Home and the local Clinical Commissioning Group. We would then campaign on your behalf for more localised services should there be enough demand and funding. Please feel free to either e-mail us at abbey.surgery@nhs.net or write in addressed for my attention.

 

 

Kind regards,

Darren Newland
