Welcome To Our Student Page

Townsend House is a teaching practice working closely with the Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital and the University of Exeter, having frequent students join our team on placement provides a fresh and exciting opportunity for the students to experience a real working environment while learning new skills and gaining the knowledge required for general practice.


Our 2022-23 feedback rated us as EXCELLENT "The panel hasn't identified any areas of concern.  There are one or more areas identified which ought to be communicated to others to highlight good practice and where practical these should be implemented in other training environments".
