Prescription Ordering

A minimum of three clear working days is required to process all repeat prescription requests. ‘Working days’ are classed as Monday to Friday (excluding all Bank Holidays). 

So for example, if you would like your medication to be ready on a (non-Bank Holiday) Monday afternoon, you will need to order it on Wednesday morning at the latest.

Tamar Valley Health - click on the link for information on - 'Our Team and What We Do'

During the peak Summer period, patients will as usual be given an appointment where needed with the appropriate team member for their need.

On occasion our doctors may wish to discuss the most suitable care for you.

Please note that all patient appointment requests will be dealt with on the day but we do ask that you call as early in the day as possible if you need an urgent appointment.






Tamar Valley Health is the general medical practice serving the people of Callington, Gunnislake and surrounding area. We run two surgeries: Callington Health Centre and Gunnislake Health Centre.

Our patients are our priority and this website has been designed with our patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.

The technology also means you can now do many things online such as order a repeat prescription, make or cancel an appointment or simply find out more about what we can do for you at Tamar Valley Health.

Serving You

The doctors and staff at Tamar Valley Health are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.  We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including minor surgery, antenatal and postnatal care, minor injuries services, and childhood vaccinations. 

Partners in Care

Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.


Disabled access and facilities are available at both health centres, including automatic doors, disabled toilet facilities, height-adjustable examination couches and hearing loops. If you require additional assistance from a member of staff, please ask, and also please let us know if we are not meeting your needs in this area.
