We are delighted to announce that with the support of the Brixham Hospital League of Friends, additional GP practice services will be available within Brixham Hospital for our patients from next month.
What does that mean for you?
From a patient perspective, there will be an additional location that you may be sent to for practice appointments.
Brixham Hospital will become the third Compass House site, with King Street in Brixham
remaining the main surgery, along with the branch surgery at Galmpton.
All staff will be working across all three sites on rotation.
The Brixham Hospital site is a branch site, like Galmpton, and much smaller than our main site at King Street.
Whilst it will offer extra space to house more staff and provide extra appointments for our growing patient population, it will not be able to offer the full range of services that we can at our main site as it is much smaller.
Patients will be advised which site to attend when they call to book an appointment.
Contacting the practice
The phone numbers remain the same. You should continue to contact your practice in the same way that you do now. Compass Medical Centre: 01803 855897. You will then be directed to the best site that day based on the appointment type you require and the clinicians working at each site.
The extra space we have secured for our patients is in a newly refurbished wing, alongside a similar wing for Mayfield Medical Centre for their patients.
There will be a shared reception area and waiting room for both GP practices and hospital outpatient appointments.
Appointments will commence at Brixham Hospital for our patients from 20 February 2023.
The new location address is:
Greenswood Road, Brixham TQ5 9HW
Access to the site is via the main Brixham Hospital entrance.
More details about the location and transport are below.
You will be able to access a variety of services at the hospital, by appointment only, including:
Health care assistants
We are very excited about our new additional location and look forward to welcoming you there soon.
Dr Bromige, Dr Ansley, Dr Teesdale, Dr Jones, Dr Gunning, Dr Delany, Steph Tedstone (Management Partner) and Ian Parsonage (Nurse Partner)
