Practice Staff

Manager: Mr David Cobley runs the Practice for the Partners, interfacing with the massively increased administration of the larger NHS. He can deal with any queries, suggestions or complaints.

Office Manager: Mrs Shirley Turner runs the office and directs the secretarial and reception team.

Receptionist/Secretaries: Our friendly team arrange appointments and handle requests for repeat prescriptions, home visits and most other things.

They handle the inevitable paperwork (and an engorging torrent of paperwork added by a host of agencies) involved in running the practice and are here to help you.

Nurses: Sam Howard, Naomi Walter (lately of the Chapel Platt practice in Topsham) and Bridget North and our HCA Celia Genders are members of the Practice clinical team, carry out a wide range of nursing procedures and follow up various conditions.

They run their own clinics and health education sessions.

They variously have additional qualification and experience in asthma and diabetic care and liaise closely with the doctors.

Attached Staff

The Health Visitors who until recently were attached to general practices now organise themselves in areas. A health visitor should continue to be available to you wherever you live. They visit people at home and conduct child health activities in their various offices.

Contact is now via their coordinator.


Monika Naronha and Alison Eve moved on and our current midwife is Kate Yardley. She or a colleague hold antenatal clinics in the surgery and antenatal classes elsewhere.

After your baby is born your midwife will visit you at home.

The midwives liaise with the doctors.

District Nurses

Our district nursing team are experienced nurses based in our Homefield building.

They give nursing care to housebound patients with advice and support to family and carers.
