Devon Safeguarding Children Boards - if you are worried about a child please call 0345 155 1071 or out of hours call 0845 6000 388


We are an approved training practice.  Please read this information about Consultations with Medical Students.



Our normal opening hours are 8.30am to 6.00pm, Monday to Friday

Outside of these hours, if you have an urgent medical need which cannot wait until the surgery reopens, please ring NHS 111 where you will be assisted to receive the right care.

In an emergency when someone needs medical help to save their life dial 999.




Teaching and Training

We are a training practice. You may be offered an appointment with a qualified doctor gaining experience in general practice or asked if one may be present whilst you consult your own doctor. If you prefer to see your doctor in private then please say so. No one will be offended. Dr Richard Mejzner, Dr Ben Hallmark and Dr Helen Parkes are approved trainers.

Registrar doctors

Registrars are fully qualified doctors who have decided they would like to become GPs. They will undertake a minimum of six months of ‘on-the-job’ training with us here at Budleigh Salterton Medical Centre and are supervised by the Partners.


We regularly have medical students here for placements. These are young people training to become doctors. You will be informed if there is a student sitting in with the doctor you wish to see and asked if you are prepared to have the student in your consultation. Do not be afraid to say no.
