We are pleased to announce that Dr. Rhiannon Starks is joining the Practice on Wednesday 6th June.  However, we regretfully announce that Dr. Rob Adams is leaving Tamar Valley Health in June as he is re-locating to another part of the country. We wish

Dr. Adams all the very best for the future. We are actively recruiting for this post.

If Dr. Adams 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 Callington.


Dr. Michelle Raspa will be joining the Practice on Thursday 7th June 2018. 

If Dr. Prior was your ‘usual’ GP before he left you may now have

Dr. Raspa as your ‘usual’ GP. Reception can advise you if this is the case after the above date.

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.
