Welcome to Holsworthy Medical Centre
Holsworthy Medical Centre serves Holsworthy as well as its surrounding villages. Our team includes GPs, a Clinical Pharmacist, four nurse practitioners, practice nurses, health care assistants and phlebotomists as well as our practice management and administrative support teams.
We are responsible for advising patients on leading a healthy lifestyle as well as caring for the sick. We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics as indicated in this website. There is also an on-site dispensing service.
At Holsworthy Medical Centre we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. We feel it is important that you know who you are speaking to, so our office staff wear a name badge and identify themselves on the telephone.
A CQC Inspection level of 'Outstanding' given in 2015.

RECEPTION TEAM QUESTIONS
We would like to thank our patients for being so supportive of our Emergency Team and for answering our questions on booking. Please note that if you are not able or do not wish to give details of your condition at the time of booking you will be given a telephone appointment with a member of the team so that your condition can be assessed and an appointment given appropriately. Any information you give on booking is always treated as strictly confidential.
A very warm welcome to Dr Sean Whitaker who has now started with us as part of the permanent GP team, taking on Dr McMaster's/Dr Shiva's patient list. Dr Whitaker is available on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Dr Craig Chandler has now left the practice after his four month placement with us. Dr Hugh Dunkerley has now joined us in a similar capacity, again for four months until the end of March 2018. Like Dr Chandler he is a fully qualified doctor gaining experience in a GP practice and will be available on the Emergency Team and for appointments shortly.
Dr Holly Puckett will be joining us in February and will be with us for 12 months. Already a qualified doctor, Dr Puckett is completing the final year of her general practice qualification. We are delighted to have her with us.
