Please note that the Practice is still running a limited service due to the ongoing pandemic.
If you wish to speak to a GP or nurse PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE PRACTICE. Please phone the Practice on 01404 814447 and a member of our reception team will arrange a phone consultation for you or advise on another way to help you. If your preferred GP is not available on the day you phone the Practice, and you are willing to wait until they are next available, please let our reception staff now.
If an appointment is made, it will either be done via telephone or video consultation. You will only be invited to attend the Practice if a GP or nurse has specifically asked you to do so. An alternative would be to use eConsult (found below) which allows you to consult a GP of your choice at any time of the day. We try to ensure you get a prompt response to these requests.
We kindly ask that you please wear a face covering when coming to the Practice for an appointment, and to keep it on until you leave the building.
Thank you for your understanding.

Self isolation, social distancing and shielding - what does it mean?
Ottery St Mary Medical Trust Fund
Established in 1990, the Ottery St Mary Medical Trust has enabled the Coleridge Medical Centre to remain at the cutting edge of general medical practice.
As the demands on the NHS increase, the generosity of those who have donated to, fundraised for, or left a gift in their will to the Trust, has enabled the GP Partners at the Medical Centre to enhance the care provided to our patients. The Trust has invested the funds received in equipment and services which otherwise would not have been funded by the NHS.
The gifts the Trust receives are an acknowledgement of the care the practice delivers to the community. It is, therefore, fitting that the funds help us provide an even better service for Ottery St Mary and the surrounding villages.
The GP Partners, as Trustees, welcome and will consider all requests and suggestions for purchases that will benefit patients and users of the Medical Centre. The Trust is regulated by the Charity Commission and all purchases must meet the criteria set out in the Trust Deed.
Your donations have undoubtedly helped us provide reassurance, dignity and comfort to our patients, whilst potentially saving lives. From pre-birth to end of life, you have made the difference.
