If you are a patient who has their medication dispensed from our Dispensary in Tavistock and you have trouble in coming into the Surgery to collect your medication, we can now deliver your medication direct to your door.

If you are not a patient who has their medication dispensed by us BUT you live more than a mile from a Pharmacy you would be able to take advantage of this service. If this applies to you and you would like to change and let us dispense your medication to you please let us know and we will deliver it for you now!!


Dear All,

We are very sorry to announce the retirement of Dr John Evans as a Partner here at Abbey Surgery. Dr Evans will be leaving us in June and we wish him a long and happy retirement.

We are very pleased to say that Dr Lucy Densham who already works here will become a Partner at Abbey Surgery replacing Dr John Evans.

Dr Nicky Duke and Dr Charlotte Meredith will also be joining us in the month of July.
