Welcome to Cheriton Bishop & Teign Valley Practice

We are a busy rural GP Training Practice with four doctors and a GP Registrar. Our main surgery is at Cheriton Bishop and our Branch surgery at Christow. Our Practice Area covers approximately 80 square miles with 12 villages around the beautiful landscape in and around the Dartmoor National Park.

Our aim is to give a personal, caring, efficient and friendly service to all our patients. This not only includes the management of acute illness, but a proactive, holistic and sensitive treatment of all chronic diseases, and a fully structured preventative health program for all age groups.

Please call NHS 119 as this service has been introduced to help with the Covid vaccine enquiries and bookings.  Bookings can also be made by visiting the website to book your booster vaccine at one of the mass vaccination centres.

Type 1 Opt-out

You have the right to object to your confidential patient data being shared for purposes beyond your direct care by asking the practice to apply a Type 1 opt-out to your medical records.  A Type 1 opt-out prevents personal data about you, being extracted from your GP record, and uploaded to any other organisations without your explicit consent.  Please visit the website below to complete the online form, once completed print out and return to the practice to enable us to update your records.


As you are aware we require 3 Full Working Days to prepare your Prescription, therefore, there is no need to telephone or contact the Surgery to check if it is ready for collection, provided you have left the required full three workings days before collecting.  If there is a problem, we will contact you. 

Please note that the Dispensary is closed daily between 1pm - 3pm to please avoid these times to collect medication.

We respectfully ask that you help us cut down the very large volume of telephone calls, we are currently receiving from patients, asking if their prescriptions are ready for collection.

Many thanks for your help.
