Our surgery is linking with Trelissick park run:
- It starts at 9am every Saturday morning.
- At least one member of our team will be there every week to either volunteer, walk, run and most importantly support you.
- Turn up and walk, jog or run 5k.
If you are not up for taking part you can get involved by becoming a volunteer.
There are other local park runs every Saturday at Heartlands and Penrose.

GP TRAINING PRACTICE

We have recently been approved as a GP Training practice. This means that we will be having fully qualified Doctors coming to the surgery to complete their General Practice Training.

These Doctors will have had considerable experience in hospital medicine, as well as, in many cases, general practice. They will be able to see patients, prescribe medication and make referrals like any other Doctor working in the practice.

Dr Frances Batten will be starting on Monday 30th January and will be with us for approximately 6-12 months

SAVVY Kernow (for 13 - 19 yrs)

We are currently updating our registration with SAVVY Kernow and altering our information: www.savvykernow.org.uk   

The Surgery is also the named ‘Safe Haven for Patients with Learning Disabilities’ within the area.

Our website is aimed at providing more information about the medical care and services we provide. If you have any queries that have not been covered on the website please do not hesitate to contact the Surgery via email: letters.chacewater@nhs.net

As part of our serivce to you, we would like to inform you that you have a named allocated GP which is recorded on your medical record. If you would like to know who your named allocated GP is, please ask Reception. This does not mean that you cannot see a GP of your choice as we do not hold individual GP lists and you are registered with the Practice in general.

Request from Devoran Village Hall Committee

The Devoran Village Hall Committee have requested that patients attending Devoran surgery DO NOT park in the Village Hall Car Park AT ANY TIME.

As a concession, patients at the surgery are allowed to use the disabled/loading bay at the front of the village hall by the surgery, if it is not required by a Village Hall user with mobility problems.

The surgery has lined parking spaces in front of the surgery and patients are able to park on the road opposite the surgery.

We appreciate that patients have parked in the Village Hall car park for a number of years, but now that the Village Hall is being hired/used more frequently, the users of the Village Hall have priority at all times as instructed by the Village Hall Committee.

The car park is owned by the Village Hall Committee.

From 1st April 2018 prescription charges in England have increased to £8.80 per item.

EPS (Electronic Prescriptions) has recently been introduced to Cornwall.

This is a service that Dispensing Patients already enjoy from the Practice Dispensary. For further information please click on the header for EPS under Further Information.

If you have a medical emergency outside our normal opening times please call NHS 111
