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.
