Welcome to our practice website

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.
