High Bickington Surgery

01805 622247


Torrington Health Centre serves the whole of Torrington as well as its surrounding villages and has a branch surgery at The Old Stables, High Bickington. Our team includes five GPs, three senior nurses (covering both surgeries) and two health care assistants as well as our practice manager, dispensers and reception staff.

The doctors work as a group and hold a contract with the Northern, Eastern and Western Devon Commissioning Group to deliver services to patients under the NHS.

We offer a full general practice service with a named GP responsible for each patients’ overall care at the practice. We provide specialist clinics, travel, diabetics, epilepsy, asthmatics, coronary heart disease patients and minor surgery. We also offer an on-site dispensing service for patients living outside of a one mile radius of Torrington. Contact the Commissioning Group on (01392) 205205 for services we do not provide. At Torrington Health Centre we aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence. We review the quality of our service annually to ensure all standards and targets are being met.

If you live in our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete one of our registration forms that are also available from reception.
