Welcome to Chagford Health Centre 

The doctors and staff at Chagford Health Centre in Devon are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.  We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.

There have been doctors practicing in Chagford since at least 1804. The current Health Centre was purpose-built in 1979 and underwent major alterations in 1983, 1991 and 1998 and 2015/16.  It has both access and toilet facilities for the disabled plus a toilet for wheelchair users.


Chagford Health Centre has now been running the nail cutting service for 7 months and it is proving very successful, therefore we are now offering a full day instead of a half day on the 1st Tuesday of each month from 1000am until 1530   This service is offered to all patients who cannot manage to cut their own nails except patients who suffer with diabetes and/or some other medical problems such as surgery to arteries in legs or feet, intermittent claudication/severe poor circulation, painful corns, callus, severely thickened or deformed toe nails, severe foot/toe deformities, recurrent foot infection requiring antibiotic therapy.  

This service is now offered by Dartmoor Foot Practitioner Amber Bennett - the cost to patient is £15.00

If you are not a patient of Chagford Health Centre you will be asked to provide details of all the medicines you regularly take by bringing a copy of your current prescription list to your first appointment. 

Please note that she has been trained to cut toe and finger nails ONLY  - She is not a Chiropodist.
