Message from NHS England

Registration letters from NHS England
- please respond if you get one

The NHS is carrying out work in Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all.

If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes. Changes can be made by returning the form in the prepaid envelope. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, by freephone, via text message or online.

It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do get out of date over time. If we don't have an accurate record of your name and address, then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with important information.

We may also need to contact you:

• with test results
• to invite you for bowel, breast or cervical screening to protect against cancer, for example
• to offer vaccination against infectious diseases such as flu or measles, mumps and rubella
• to give you an appointment as part of your plan to stay healthy if you have a long term illness.

Please respond to the letter within four weeks, so the NHS can be certain about your details. Otherwise, the NHS will assume that you have moved away, and begin the process to remove you from the practice list.

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


Important Information – Please Read
Please be aware that if you received a letter from NHS England during March & April asking you to confirm who are registered with and did not respond, you will be automatically de-registered unless you make contact with your surgery.

If this applies to you, please contact the Practice as soon as possible to confirm you wish to remain registered.



We wrote to you in March informing you of the planned changes following the departure of Dr Tom Debenham, and advising that we would be seeking your views on the service after a period of 3 months.
We would therefore ask you for any comments or suggestions you may have regarding the services currently provided at the Surgery. Please feed these back to our Practice Manager, Mrs Debbie Sargeant, in writing, by telephone on 280440,  or email her at
