Welcome To Claremont Medical Practice

Our Practice has two sites - Exmouth Health Centre and Underhill Surgery, Lympstone. We offer a personal, friendly service whilst aiming to provide continuing high quality medical care to all our Patients. With this in mind we have a CHARTER setting out the standards of service you should expect and also a USER'S GUIDE to help us give you the best possible service.

As a result of our high standards, our Practice has also been accredited for the training of Doctors in General Practice.

Retirement of Dr Teresa Nicholson

Dr Teresa Nicholson will be retiring from the Practice on 31st March after 28 years as a Partner at Claremont.  We are of course sorry to see her go but wish her all the best for the future.

Teresa will miss her patients, especially those she has been with over many years and got to know well.

Dr Lisa Gibbons will be joining the Partnership at the beginning of June and will be taking over Teresa’s patient list. Lisa is an experienced GP and we look forward to having her join our team.

In the meantime the care of Teresa’s patients will be shared between the other Partners. We appreciate that changing Doctors can be unsettling and apologise for any inconvenience caused.  Please be assured that we continue to be committed to providing the best possible service for our patients.

The transfer will happen automatically and there is no action required by patients. Should you have any queries however please do not hesitate to contact Debbie Sargeant, Practice Manager, on 01395 280440

If there is a particular problem you are seeing your current doctor about on a frequent basis and you are concerned about the transfer of care at this time, please contact the surgery on 01395 273666.

We appreciate that changing Doctors can be unsettling and apologise for any inconvenience cause.  Please be assured that we continue to be committed to providing the best possible service for our patients.
