If you wish to make an appointment at any of our sites then please use the following numbers:

  • Hatherleigh: 01409 253692
  • Holsworthy: 01409 253692
  • Stratton: 01288 352133

Patient On-Line (All Patients)

Patient On-Line gives you access to the online services for Holsworthy, Hatherleigh and Stratton practices. This includes arranging appointments, repeat medication, secure messages, medical record and updating your details. You can book an appointment online via the link at the top of this page.

You will need to be registered for this service. Please bring ID with you to do this so that we can verify your identity. For patient confidentiality reasons we are only able to give this on-line details to the patient to whom they belong unless proxy access consents are in place. Please ask at reception about this.


To ensure the highest levels of continuity of care you will be offered appointments with your own GP for anything other than emergencies. Every patient at Holsworthy, Hatherleigh and Stratton is allocated a named GP. If you do not know who your named GP is please ask.

Ring our main switchboard number on 01409 253692 (HOLSWORTHY & HATHERLEIGH) or 01288 352133 (STRATTON) to book an appointment with your doctor, the Emergency Team (consisting of Nurse Practitioners, GPs and other clinicians), or a member of the Nursing Team.

If your regular doctor is not available and you require an emergency appointment you will be offered an appointment with either our Emergency Team (if it is a condition of sudden on-set, or an existing condition that has got worse) or another doctor. Our clinicians are still preferring to call you first, before inviting you in for an appointment. Please be reassured that you will be invited in if there is a medical need to do so. 

Should you wish to speak to a doctor other than your regular doctor for a specific problem, please state this at the time of booking.

We offer pre-bookable appointments, up to two months in advance.




We have been working tirelessly to replace the staff that have either left or retired recently from our Stratton practice recently. We are delighted that, in a very difficult climate for recruitment, three experienced and enthusiastic new GPs will be joining us at Stratton from July onwards. 

In the meantime, however, we will need to change the way we do things at Stratton Medical Centre temporarily, to ensure best practice during the summer months. This should also accommodate summer annual leave. 

 The main points of the plan are: 

  • Dr Sophie Ewing (partner GP) will be working at Stratton on a Mondays from 6th June onwards, alongside Dr Jones-Pahdi, Dr D'Ambrogio and Dr Gillanders. We also have a junior doctor, Dr Giamvaris joining us in August who will be seeing patients in-house.
  • Patients will be able to see any GP at the practice, and not just their named GP. 
  • Patients will be offered appointments with a GP working remotely using video call if they wish to be seen sooner than the next available appointment with an inhouse GP. Our remote GPs work for us through LIVI and the app to access these GPs can be downloaded easily from their website at: and is available 7 days a week. Our Patient Services Advisers can book all these appointments with patients, if requested. 
  • GP’s and locums will continue to triage all appointment requests with other appointments (including face-to-face appointments) being bookable by clinicians from the telephone triage thereafter. 

We will be reviewing this closely to ensure a workable balance is achieved and hope this will be an acceptable alternative for the summer months. If you have any specific concerns that you would like to express, please email us at:


Early Morning Appointments

We also offer early morning appointments at Holsworthy for those patients who cannot attend the practice in normal working hours starting at 07:40.  

Telephone Advice Appointments

Telephone advice appointments are available with a doctor or nurse. Please request a telephone appointment and you will be given a time when the doctor or nurse will call you on the telephone number you have given. If you are using a mobile phone please keep your phone on and make sure you have a strong signal.

Home Visits

Our doctors typically see six patients in the practice in the time it takes to do a single home visit. For this reason, we ask our patients to come to the practice if at all possible.

However, members of our Visiting Team (Nurse Practitioners and paramedics) can visit you at home if your condition means you cannot attend at a Medical Centre.

Please ring before 10:30am to arrange a visit and let us know if your condition is urgent. As visits are conducted throughout the day, and our team members have to travel considerable distances between patients occasionally, we cannot specify an exact time when you will be visited. If your condition deteriorates before we are able to get to you and you need urgent assistance please call 999.

Improved Access

The practice offers appointments from 07:40, Monday to Friday at our Holsworthy site. These appointments may be with a doctor or a nurse, and can be booked in advance by telephone or using the online booking system.

Also at Holsworthy we offer Improved Access appointments for our Devon patients on a Thursday evening until 20:00 and alternate Saturdays from 09:00 – 12:30. These appointments are pre-bookable and, during the pandemic, are telephone consultations. Please be aware that we do not operate a walk-in service during these hours.

Cancel an Appointment

It is important that you inform the reception staff if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. If you fail to notify the Practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you that you have defaulted from your appointment. Persistent defaulters maybe removed from the list.

You can also complete our appointment cancellation notification request form. This can only be used if your appointment has been arranged for more than 24 hours in advance. (excluding weekends and public holidays). You can also text to cancel your appointment.
