Sidmouth Health Centre

01395 512601 Blackmore Drive, Sidmouth , Devon, EX10 8ET

3.5 out of 5 stars

Based on 12 ratings for this GP surgery


We have a dedicated team of 10 GP Partners who are responsible for and oversee all the care of their patients. We operate “Personal Lists” meaning you will normally see one Doctor.  We believe this system is essential for ensuring continuity of care.

The Doctors are assisted by 2 Salaried GPs, a team of Nurses and Health Care Assistants and Reception and Administration Staff. We are fortunate to have the Primary Care Team of Public Health Nurses (Health Visitors and School Nurse), Community Nurses, a Speech and Language Therapist and a Young Persons Health Advisor and Counsellors.

We work under contract to NHS Devon to provide personal medical services to the population of Sidmouth, Sidford and surrounding area of the Sid Valley. The total number of registered patients is approximately 14,500. We provide a comprehensive range of medical services including specialist nurse led clinics for conditions such as Chronic Heart Disease, Asthma, Diabetes, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, Hypertension, Blood Pressure Monitoring and Anticoagulation Therapy.

In the autumn of 2002 we completed the Royal College of General Practitioners Quality Practice Award. At the time we were the 2nd practice in Devon to achieve this award and joint 36th in England.

The practice operates from two sites. The main surgery referred to as Beacon Medical Centre and the branch surgery at Sidmouth Health Centre.
