 HEALTH AND CARE FORUM FOR SEATON LOCALITY

In 2015 Health professionals and others with an interest in Health and Care issues were invited to join a Forum for Seaton and the surrounding parishes.

Meetings of the Forum have been held at Seaton and District Hospital since 2015 and members are very keen to encourage others to join, especially in order to represent patients and the public and in particular younger members of the community.

The Forum is one of five in the East Devon area, the others being Axminster, Honiton, Ottery St. Mary and Sidmouth and this provides a route for taking more general issues forward.

With recent changes in health services it is even more important that local people have their say.

Anyone with an interest in Health and Care matters or belonging to a group that they feel should be represented on the Forum can contact Tina Trapani who chairs the Forum by phoning 01297 21788 or by emailing nantinmumber@yahoo.com

New Patient Registration

How to register

When arriving at the Surgery to register we require you to complete the following forms in able to register you;

1) New patient registration form (purple)

2) Patient questionnaire in full 

3) you will also need to provide identification e.g Passport or driving licence, and proof of your address

Please allow 5 working days for us to process your registration.

New patients registering with the Practice over the age of 5 are entitled to a check-up with the doctor. This involves discussing your past medical history, arranging your medication and contraception, and a simple examination including blood pressure, weight and analysis of your urine, please bring a urine sample with you.

Registration is with the Practice; however, we run a 'Usual Doctor' system for each patient where you will be asked which doctor you would most like to see. Occasionally one doctor's list is full so you may be asked to register with an alternative.

We believe this policy fosters a close relationship, provides better continuity of care and reduces the possibility of both patients and doctors being uncertain about roles and responsibilities.

Of course there may be times when you will be offered an appointment with another Doctor if the problem is extremely urgent or if your own doctor is away.

Practice Area

We are currently accepting registrations from patients outside of the practice area.

The practice covers an area approximately 8 miles surrounding Seaton. This includes: Beer, Colyton, Colyford, Musbury, Shute, Axmouth and Branscombe. Patients looking to register with the practice can do so by obtaining forms from reception or by completeing the online registration forms.

We also have a branch site in Beer, despite limited opening hours this proves popular with our patients for ease of parking. Should you wish to make an appointment at our branch site please inform reception.
