Torbay General Practice

Torbay General Practice (TGP) is a group of 10 doctors surgeries that work together to benefit patients across Torbay

Corner Place Surgery is part of an alliance of ten GP surgeries called Torbay General Practice (TGP).  TGP’s surgeries work together to deliver large-scale services and tackle wider health issues more effectively.

However, day-to-day services such as GP consultations and nurse appointments are still delivered by each practice individually.

Like many parts of the country, Torbay’s population faces a number of health challenges. The age profile of the area is comparatively high, which means long-term health conditions, such as diabetes and heart disease, are increasing.

Working together more closely enables practices to address those issues more effectively. It allows us to organise services and systems that are more robust, sustainable and effective for the local population.

TGP’s initiatives include the Enhanced Access service which provides evening and weekend appointments and the Covid Vaccination Service, based at the Riviera International Centre.

Together TGP can maximise the strengths and skills of individual practice staff and it means support is available for practices that might face certain challenges.

TGP is made of the following practices:

  • Corner Place Surgery
  • Old Farm Surgery.
  • Mayfield Medical Centre
  • Compass House Medical Centres
  • Pembroke House Surgery
  • Chilcote Surgery
  • Southover Medical Practice
  • Brunel Medical Practice
  • Chelston Hall Surgery
  • Croft Hall Medical Practice

It is led by a team made up of the practice managers and a GP from each of the ten practices. The team works together on initiatives that benefit all patients across Torbay.
