COVID-19 vaccination of priority groups  

We are planning for our COVID-19 vaccination service to be open to eligible patients from the middle of the week commencing 11th January 2021 onwards and we will soon start booking our patients into the dedicated clinic accordingly. However, there is a chance that the service will not be available until the following week, and if this is the case, we may need to rearrange appointments.

Please do not contact the practice to request a vaccine, we will contact patients in accordance with the national vaccination schedule.

We are not able to order vaccines, we can only provide vaccines as we receive them, so it will take time to vaccinate everyone. Please continue to follow the Hands, Face, Space guidance that is so very important.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Dr Peter Twomey - Personal Profile

I am married with two grown up children. I have been a partner at Chiddenbrook Surgery since 1991. Within surgery I help the team deliver core general practice including routine and urgent care. At management level I lead on strategic practice development. I am currently working with a team of colleagues, looking to merge the two surgeries in Crediton and together collocate to new premises on a new site. I am also on the board of Mid Devon Healthcare, a local federation of eight general practices, who work together to improve on the quality and the efficiency of delivering general practice to the patients and community in the challenging geographical environment of rural mid Devon. It is my wish to develop my professional career by applying the knowledge, skills and experience I have acquired to the sustained improvement and transformation of health care in Mid Devon. Away from work I have many pastimes and love the outdoors.
