DR BETH TIMMINS

Unfortunately Dr Beth Timmins will be leaving Seaton & Colyton Medical Practice on the 14th April 2021 as she and her family are relocating. Dr Timmins has been associated with the practice since 2015 and became a salaried GP in 2019. Dr Timmins has been a very valuable member of the team and will be missed, and we wish her all the very best in the future. 

We are delighted to announce that Dr James Hill who some patients may know as he is a regular locum GP at the practice will be joining as a permanent member of our GP team. 

Dr Hill will be taking over the responsibility of care for Dr Timmins patients. 

COVID VACCINATION UPDATE

The practice is currently working through priority groups that has been set by the JCVI (Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations) to offer an appointment for a covid vaccination. Please be assured that as soon as we are notified of a delivery we are inving patients in, which is currently on a weekly basis. We please ask that you do not contact the practice to enquire when you will receive your invite as we must also ensure that patients who require urgent care are able to access our services. 

 

You may receive an invitation for a covid 19 vaccination at a hub in the region. If you wish to accept you can book directly, but you can also be vaccinated by your GP practice. Vaccinations are taking place every week and we will contact patients from priority groups as soon as we receive deliveries.
