Dr Ed Prior

We regretfully announce that Dr. Ed Prior is leaving Tamar Valley Health as he and his family are re-locating to another part of the country. We wish

Dr Prior all the very best for the future. We are actively recruiting for this post. If he is your ‘usual’ GP then you will be advised who your new ‘usual’ GP will be once they have been appointed. Until this time you can continue to see any of the GPs or regular locum GPs at Gunnislake.


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.

Clinics & Services

Minor Injuries

We offer a walk-in minor injury service for injuries such as the following: 

  • Cuts and grazes 
  • Splinters
  • Foreign bodies in eyes and ears 
  • Minor burns and scalds 
  • Blows to the head that did NOT involve loss of consciousness 
  • Minor surgery procedures 

Minor Surgery

We can undertake a range of minor surgery procedures, including removing certain “lumps and bumps”, and injecting joints. You may be referred to another doctor or nurse who specialises in this service.

Family Planning and Maternity Care

All the doctors and many of the nurses are trained in family planning, and we offer a coil-fitting service. The morning-after pill is also readily available. 

Our community midwives run ante-natal clinics, and refer pregnant patients to their GPs as necessary. Patients having home births will receive visits from their GPs to undertake new baby checks. 

Teenage Health

The practice runs a service called Tic-Tac which provides health advice at Callington Community College every lunchtime during term time. Children attending the college (including pre-teenagers) can attend a confidential drop-in centre for advice. This service is also open to those who are not patients of the practice 

Medication Monitoring

We provide a medication-monitoring service for patients on certain drugs such as Warfarin and specific drugs for severe arthritis or skin problems. Your doctor will advise you if this is necessary, and will explain how you will be monitored. 

Immunisations and Travel Vaccinations

We offer a full range of vaccinations and immunisations, from those for young babies through to adults travelling abroad or those needing protection against ‘flu. Yellow Fever immunisations are available at Callington Health Centre. Please note that there may be charges for certain immunisations for travellers. More information on travel vaccinations can be found on the above tab.
