All our patients have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you are not aware who this is. If you have a particular preference we will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.


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.

Practice News and Notices

Information Notice for Patients of Dr Kevin Douglas
As a result of ongoing list maintenance it is evident that Dr Douglas's list is oversubscribed. We are aware that this can make it difficult for registered patients to see their usual Doctor.

Dr Joe Mays, a highly experienced GP, joined the Claremont team in April.

A number of Dr Douglas's patients, i.e. those with surnames beginning with A to E, are being transferred under Dr May's care from 1st July.

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




Information Notice for Patients re SMS Messaging
Please note that we now have the facility to contact patients by text using SMS Messaging. This will include automatic appointment confirmation, reminder, and cancellation messages.

If you have not already provided us with your mobile phone number please speak to a member of staff.
