Our Services

Our GP surgeries offer general medical services – including family doctor and nurse services – to minor surgery.

We also offer additional services – including musculoskeletal and specialist dermatology – and are linking with our partners to bring more services closer to our community.


Some of the most common services we offer are:

  • NHS health checks

  • Contraceptive and maternity medical services

  • Vaccinations and immunisations

  • Minor surgery incisions/excisions

  • Minor surgery joint injections

  • Stop smoking advice and alcohol consumption screening

Our surgeries also provide services which are non-NHS and are paid for by the patient.

These services include:

  • Insurance reports and claim forms

  • Private medical reports

  • Non NHS vaccinations

  • Private sick notes

  • Pre-employment and driving 

  • Vaccination certificates

  • Completion of certificates/forms/letters

  • Travel vaccinations

We also have new multi-skilled urgent care team to support patients with urgent care issues.

The team offers same-day urgent care appointments – where appropriate following a telephone assessment – for patients with conditions such as respiratory problems, chest or back pains, diabetes and ongoing chronic diseases.

Our clinical pharmacists work closely with the urgent care team and also hold regular routine clinics that offer appointments for patients who need medication reviews and have general medication queries.

A Minor Injuries Unit operates from Ivybridge Medical Practice and is open from 8am-6pm Monday to Friday. It is available to all residents – not just those registered with Beacon Medical Group. Members of the public can call 01752 690777 to book a same-day appointment, avoiding any unnecessary waits.

If you are unsure whether we offer a specific service, call your surgery direct or email us at beaconmedicalgroup.nhs.net.
