Welcome to the North Tawton Medical Practice website

"Our mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of the people and communities that we serve. To promote wellness, to relieve suffering and to manage illness with skill and compassion, recognising each individual and treating each with dignity and respect."

The Medical Practice is located at Devonshire House on Essington Road, which is a charming stone building dating back to the mid 1980s. North Tawton is a small ancient market town surrounded by beautiful West Devon countryside and close to Dartmoor National Park. The practice provides NHS GP services to the community and surrounding villages.

The surgery has one GP consulting room, a practice nurse treatment room, reception office and a bright and airy waiting room. The building is well equipped and has recently been refurbished. There is a large car park with designated parking spaces for the surgery and accessible parking to the front of the building for the less mobile, with sloped access.
