 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

Dr Robert J Daniels (m)

MA, MB BChir (Cambridge 1995) MRCGP, FHEA

After training in Cambridge I worked as a junior doctor in Norwich, Exeter and Western Australia before moving to the South West.  As well as working as a GP I work as a GP Specialist in Ear, Nose and Throat medicine.  I work for Devon Doctors a couple of times a month and i am also medical director of Devon Health, a company owned by GP practices that provides additional service to the NHS. In addition to working as a doctor I am an academic tutor and small group teacher at the University of Exeter Medical School.  I have written several textbooks and occasionally do some work for NEW Devon CCG.  I am also involved in several projects to improve health and education in Rwanda, working with the university of Kigali. 

When not working I enjoy mountain and water sports.  I have been on 7 charity expeditions working as a Doctor and now have the dubious distinction of having suffered both altitude sickness and the bends.  I have been to all but 1 of the continents and will be going to Antarctica as soon as I can persuade my wife to let me!

Dr Jonathan Dove

MBBS MRCGP

My training based mainly in London included a stint in the Shetland Islands. I am delighted to be a GP partner in beautiful East Devon and I also provide urgent out-of-hours care at Devon Doctors.  I have provided duty doctor care for the infamous Grizzly challenge and who knows, one day I might even attempt to run in it!

Outside work I enjoy spending time with my young family, improving my tennis serve and playing jazz piano.  I also embrace the great outdoors whenever possible, whether paddle boarding in the sea, skiing overseas or doing battle with my garden lawn.

Dr Helen Pickford

MBChB, MRCP

I qualified from Leeds Medical School in 2003 and worked in Yorkshire and Australia before settling down in East Devon. I trained as a GP in North Devon and Exeter, and I have worked part time as a GP since 2009. I have a special interest in child health and development.

Outside of work, I am mum to 2 young children and am a Governor of a local pre-school. I enjoy running and cycling in our beautiful countryside. I also sing in 2 local choirs and play the piano with enthusiasm but not much skill.

Dr Dani Harris

MBChB MRCGP

started off in the Midlands and moved to Bristol to attend medical school. I moved further in to the South West to complete my GP training on the West Somerset Coast and have worked throughout the county. Now moving to Devon, by the coast, there’s not much further south I can go without acquiring a boat!

Being completely converted to the South west coastline, countryside and lifestyle, in my spare time I try to be outside as much as possible; exploring. I enjoy travelling whether 3 months training and working in India, trekking in Nepal or failing to surf in Australia. I also enjoy photography and often combine the two with varying degrees of success!

Training

Our practice is a recognised Training Practice and has a number of qualified GP's who participate in training medical students. You may at times be offered an appointment with a medical student working alongside your normal GP. You will be offered the opportunity to decline if you are not happy with this arrangement.
