There has been a group practice in Wadebridge since the early 1900s. Many of our predecessors had their surgeries operating from their homes. Thanks to the efforts of Drs Keith Bailey and Gordon Kinsman-Barker, the new Wadebridge Health Centre was opened in 1973. In the waiting room at Wadebridge we have a practice gallery of local doctors going back to the turn of the last century.
The present partnership consists of Drs Ashby, Scott, Tyler, Dutson and Robertson - and is not a limited partnership. We are a group of vocationally trained family doctors, and our primary interest is in providing a high standard of family-orientated general medical practice.
We have been in the forefront of many areas of general practice development over the last 27 years, and this has involved such services as physiotherapy, cervical smear screening, care of the elderly and monitoring diabetes. We are involved in general practice education.
