Woolacombe Winter Surgery Hours

Please note - due to a drop in demand from patients, the Woolacombe Surgery will be closed every Tuesday from 1st February 2017.  Woolacombe patients are advised that they can attend either the Combe Martin or Ilfracombe Surgeries if necessary.

From 1st February 2017 the Woolacombe Surgery will  be open:

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday from 08:30am - 13:00.

Named Allocated GP

You may be aware that from April 2015 all practices are required to provide all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to them.


The allocated named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do.

You do not need to take any further action. If you wish to be told the name of your named GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery or call the surgery on 01271 863119.  Alternatively this information is available on the top right hand side of your repeat prescription slip.

If you are unhappy with the named doctor allocated to you and have a genuine concern that this doctor will not be best placed to undertake the responsibilities assigned; then you can ask to be reallocated to another doctor.

Welcome to Combe Coastal Practice

Combe Coastal Practice is a group of doctors who work with a Primary Healthcare Team to provide a complete range of medical services.  We are strongly committed to the NHS and pride ourselves in providing a personal, traditional type of family medicine. 

We are keen to improve the general health of the population and reduce preventable disease.  In view of this, a strong emphasis is placed on health promotion and education by both the GPs and Nursing Team.  Our vision is 'to improve and develop all that you value in General Practice, whilst working in a larger business structure in order to operate more effectively in the New NHS'.

Our main surgery is at Ilfracombe Medical Centre and we have large branch surgeries at Combe Martin and Woolacombe


There is easy access in Ilfracombe and facilities for the disabled including a ramp to the automatic doors, disabled toilets and a lift.  Both Combe Martin and Woolacombe are single storey buildings with easy access via level access or ramps and both have disabled toilet facilities.  There is very limited car parking at all of our medical centres and we encourage our patients to walk to the surgeries or use public transport if at all possible.

Car Parking

There is limited car parking at all of our 3 Medical Centres for the use of patients with a doctor or nurse appointment only, we respectfully request that you only use the car park if attending an appointment here at the medical centre.
