ReceptionWelcome to Pathfields Practice!

We are a large, forward-looking and friendly team who aim to provide the very highest standards of person-centred family medicine to our patients. We know that everyone has different needs, concerns and expectations, so the care and support we give is tailored to each individual.

Pathfields offers all the services you would expect from a modern Primary Care team, plus a host of others. Our Practice is a dynamic, innovative group and although we are rapidly expanding, we haven’t lost our personal touch – so your feedback always matters.


At a time of change and uncertainty in the NHS, we remain enthusiastic about our professions and are also a respected research and learning community, training the healthcare practitioners of tomorrow.

This website will tell you all about us and how we can help you.

Enjoy your visit….

NEW – Book, amend or cancel your appointments online

In order to continue improving access for our patients, Pathfields have now ‘gone live’ with our Appointments Online facility, an extension of our already successful prescriptions online service.  If you are already registered for prescriptions online you will notice an additional tab on your home page where you can access a pre-selected number of appointments.

We are committed to improving patient access and better online systems are a big part of this, we hope you find the new system easy to use and we would welcome any feedback.


Going Green


Pathfields are very pleased to be taking part in a project called grow4good. Based at Dartmoor Zoo and, working in collaboration with the University of Plymouth, grow4good provides ecotherapy to help patients with a host of mental health issues. By gaining experience in gardening, landscaping and other skills, many people who suffer with anxiety, stress, depression and similar problems also grow their self esteem and find healing through horticulture. If you would like to be part of this ground-breaking project, just have a word with your GP.


Training to Improve

We are always seeking to enhance the patient experience at Pathfields and very occasionally this means that we bring the whole team together for training and development. When this happens, our surgeries close for an afternoon, but emergency care is always easily available. We apologise for any inconvenience, but feel sure you will be pleased that we are always aiming to improve the service we provide.
