“I qualified from Newcastle University in 1988 and then spent 3 years at the RD&E undergoing GP training. From 1992-1994 I worked in New Zealand specialising in palliative care. I then returned to Devon and worked at Whipton Hospital in Exeter in the care of the elderly prior to joining Budleigh Salterton Medical Centre in 1998. My interests are care of the elderly, family planning and palliative medicine. I am married and have two young children and a dog.”

Dr Karen Heaney (Partner) - MB, ChB, MRCGP, DPD (f)

“I qualified from Glasgow University in 1988 and rapidly decided general practice was for me. Years of cold wet weather drew me to the sunny south west where I now live with my husband and our two daughters. Within general practice my particular interests are dermatology, diabetes and family planning.”

Dr Ben Hallmark (Partner) - MB, ChB, MRCGP (m)

“I trained at Manchester University and qualified in 1999. My specialist interests are paediatrics and child development, psychiatry, palliative care, minor surgery and drug misuse management, though I have worked and have experience in most specialties. I live in East Devon with my wife, two daughters and our dog, Bluebelle.”

Dr Brian Taylor (Partner) - BSc, MBCHB, MRCGP (m)

Dr Helen Parkes (Salaried GP) - MBBS, DRCOG, FP.Cert, Dip.T (f)

I qualified from the Royal Free Hospital, London in 1987.
