Social Prescribing Link Worker

Beth Harris

Hello, my name is Beth Harris and I am your Social Prescribing Link Worker for the Torquay Primary Care Network which covers: Croft Hall, Brunel Medical Practice, Southover Medical Practice and Chelston Hall Surgery.

As a Social Prescriber, I see patients for non-medical appointments where I can signpost you to activities, advice and support within the local community. Topics may include: housing, finance, anxiety, depression, long-term health conditions, isolation and social needs.

What to expect from your Social Prescriber:

  • Dedicated 1:1 time to actively listen to your problems and focus on what matters to you
  • Continued contact through your journey
  • Wide knowledge of various services within Torbay that could help you
  • Support with self-referral to chosen services
  • A friendly and supportive service that could help you to help yourself

To find out more about the Social Prescribing Service, ask at reception, search – NHS five ways of wellbeing or look out for our leaflets in the waiting areas. I look forward to meeting you!

Carer Support Worker

If you are a carer, or are cared for, and need advice or support, please let us know. We can arrange for our Carer support worker to contact you.


GP Registrars

We enjoy teaching and are keen to contribute towards the training and development of GPs for our future generations. We invite patients to help us make their experience rewarding and challenging. Our registrars are qualified doctors who have had a great deal of hospital experience and are now working in general practice, mentored by Drs Collins,  Dr Veloso and Dr Rowe for their final year before becoming General Practitioners.

Medical Students

The practice works with the Peninsula Medical School. During the year, the partners have 2nd year and 5th year medical students in the practice so that they can experience how General Practice works. You will be informed of this when you make an appointment.
If you prefer not to have a medical student present during your consultation, please say so and this will be arranged.
