Evenings and Weekends
*We will endeavour to answer calls as quickly as possible but inevitably, as with all large organisations, there will be busy times when waiting will be necessary. The telephone system will stack the calls in a queue and provide updates as to how many people are in front of you. These queues will be specific for the desk you dialled directly or the choice you made from the menu.

Urgent and Necessary measures
- Published on Sunday, 14 December 2014 17:07
NEW Devon CCG (Clinical Commissioning Group) has announced disinvestment decisions to support urgent and necessary measures due to the financial situation of our CCG. These are difficult decisions that have had to be made to prioritise safe emergency care as we head into winter. The decisions made have been based on clinical evidence and will be reviewed in 2015/2016.
The Honiton GP’s aim to provide the best possible care for our patients. We have no choice other than to apply and support the disinvestment decisions made by the CCG.
If they apply to you we will discuss this when you are seen at the surgery. Further information for patients is available as below:

Open Evening at Honiton Surgery
- Published on Monday, 17 November 2014 21:25
The Honiton Surgery Patient Participation Group was delighted with the 70 strong turnout for their open evening at the surgery on Tuesday 11th November. The dreadful weather seemed not to deter people from coming. Sandy Wason, practice manager, had to arrange extra chairs. The large audience was a tribute to the efforts of Mrs Serena Sexton, chairman of the group, and her team. Serena led the evening and welcomed Heather Penwarden, from the Memory Cafe, who talked about 'Dementia friendly Honiton' and Kate Lock from Devon Doctors on call who talked about how out of hours care was organised.
Drs Janet & David Ward talked about to make the best of the surgery and talked about ways patients could help the staff and clinicians following a survey of the staff. These included phoning for visits as early in the day as possible to allow care options to be better organised and trying not to run out of medication to avoid 'urgent' requests on a Friday afternoon.
Dr Justin Geddes talked about the commissioning of care and the evolving role of the community hospitals. Members of the audience took the opportunity to address questions to the speakers. The feedback on the slips patients were given appeared very promising and there was an appetite for further events.
Dr. David Seamark & Dr. Daniel Murphy

Please could all patients on the list of Dr. David Seamark be aware that he and Dr. Danny Murphy job share and therefore both should be considered as your regular named doctors.
Change in GPs

Change in GPs.
We are pleased to welcome Dr. Zoe Ghosh and Dr. Sarah Pedrazzini who will look after the patients that are on Dr. Barkers’s list from the end of the summer.
Dr. Pedrazzini worked as a GP near Bristol and she is re-locating for family reasons. She joins us on Monday 15th September.
Dr Ghosh has been working as a locum for us over the summer to cover Dr Evans’ sabbatical. She joins us on Monday 13th October. We are delighted to confirm their permanent positions.
Whilst we are waiting for Dr Pedrazzini and Dr Ghosh to start in their permanent positions, Dr Barker’s patients will be covered by regular locums. Drs. Ghosh and Pedrazzini will be working closely together on a job sharing basis to provide continuity of care to their patients.
All patients with surnames starting A to M will be automatically registered with Dr. Ghosh
All patients with surnames starting N to Z will be automatically registered with Dr. Pedrazzini.
If you have any concerns about your registered GP, please contact the surgery.
Patient Experience Survey Results 2013/14
- Published on Sunday, 30 March 2014 20:23
For 2 weeks in November 2013, patients who attended the surgery were asked to complete a questionnaire on their visit experience. The results have been reflected on by staff members and by members of our Patient Group, and an action plan has been formulated to try to improve services in the areas we are falling down on. The poster summarises the results of the Improving Practice Questionnaire. Details on the outcomes of the Patient Survey and action plan can be found here
Did you know as much as £5.5 million is wasted each year in Devon on unused medicines?
- Published on Friday, 15 November 2013 11:49
The same amount could pay for approximately:
- 730 heart bypass operations
- or 1,000 hip replacements
- or 2,235 knee replacements
- or 10,720 cataract operations
You can help us use this NHS money in Devon more wisely:
Look at your supplies – order only the items that you need.
Listen to the advice from your doctor, nurse or pharmacist and take all medicines as instructed on the label.
Tell your doctor, nurse or pharmacist if your medicines are not agreeing with you or you have stopped taking them.
Using the counterfoil of the prescription, tick only the medicines you need, and remember "tick in haste – medicines waste."
Open your bag of medication while at the pharmacy. If you have item(s) not requested, or surplus to your needs for the next month, please return these before leaving.
SMS (TEXT) Messaging with appointment reminders
- Published on Saturday, 07 July 2012 23:14
If you would like to receive reminders about your appointments direct to your mobile phone, please complete this form and return a signed copy to Honiton Surgery. We may also use this facility in the future if we wish to send you a message.
Over the next couple of months we also hope to be able to offer a limited on line appointment booking facility as well as ordering repeat medication (when a full list of all available repeat medication for yourself will be available to view and order). Please keep checking the website to know when this facility becomes available. We will then need you to attend the surgery with an official form of photo ID (ie passport/driving licence/bus pass). At this stage you will be given a password to be able to access the facility through this website.
