Welcome to Ruby Country Medical Group
Ruby Country Medical Group brings together Holsworthy Medical Centre, Stratton Medical Centre, Hatherleigh & Shebbear surgeries, serving Holsworthy and Stratton as well as surrounding villages. Our team includes GPs, a Clinical Pharmacist, paramedics, nurse practitioners, practice nurses, health care assistants and phlebotomists as well as our practice management and administrative support and patient services teams.
We are responsible for advising patients on leading a healthy lifestyle, as well as caring for people needing medical care. We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics as indicated in this website. There is also an on-site, independently run, pharmacy.
At Ruby Country Medical Group 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.
