Yelverton Surgery covers a large rural area extending from the north of Plymouth across to Dartmeet and Hexworthy in the east and Grenofen to the west.
We have a branch surgery at Princetown which is held Mondays, Wednesdays & Fridays between 8.40am and 9.40 am. We dispense prescriptions for patients living in the Princetown area.
We are a training practice and have doctors training to become General Practitioners working in the Surgery. They work with us for up to a year at a time.
ANNOUNCEMENT FROM THE SURGERY:
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Thomas Hanson as a GP Partner to the Practice. Dr Hanson will officially take up his new post on 1st September.
We would also like to welcome two new Registrars, Dr Julian Miles and Dr Luke Skellern, qualified doctors who are undertaking further training to become a General Practitioner. Dr Julian Miles will start with us having had recent experience in womens’ health and paediatrics. They both join us from Derriford hospital and have written a little bit about themselves:
'I trained at Liverpool University and did my house officer jobs in the Royal Liverpool Hospital. Not knowing exactly what line of medicine to chose and fancying a change I packed off to New Zealand for a year with a friend. A year turned into two working in a small town on the North Island, called Wanganui. I had a fantastic time there and was then fortunate enough to land a job working as a doctor on the ski fields on an active volcano called Mount Ruapehu. This was the start of my passion for wilderness and expedition medicine. Since then I have worked as a dive medic in Madagascar and taken a charity group up Mount Kilimanjaro, I have a few more trips in the pipeline. I now enjoy living in Plymouth where I can get a good balance of work and play be it in the sea or on the moors. When I'm not on my bike or surfboard I will look forward to seeing youhere!'Luke
'Prior to joining the Peninsular Medical School in 2005, my career was in engineering. My medical training and career has involved various Derriford based specialities relevant to General Practice. We're planning to stay in the Plymouth area upon completion of GP training in 2015. Married with 3 teenage children, we enjoy the outdoors especially water based activities.’ Julian
