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.
We understand that there is a lot of alarm about coronavirus and in response to the guidance from NHS England we are trying to minimize the risk to our patients and staff to delay the spread of Coronavirus.
Please be aware that this disease will spread and we will not be able to stop this altogether.
In the majority of cases patients have mild symptoms however in order that that our hospitals can cope with any potential increase in demand to look after the vulnerable and elderly population, we as a practice are taking steps to help protect patients.
We are asking all patients if you have a face to face appointment with the doctor or nurse and any symptoms however mild (of cough, shortness of breath or temperature) to stay at home and ring the surgery.
We will change appointments to telephone appointments or video appointments where possible and appropriate. If examinations of patients with these symptoms are required we will be seeing patients at the end of the day in isolation to minimise exposure to other patients and staff.
