Organ Donor

The law around organ donation in England has changed.

All adults in England are now considered to have agreed to be an organ donor when they die unless they have recorded a decision not to donate or are in one of the excluded groups.

If you do not want to donate your organs then you should register your decision to refuse to donate. Remember to speak to your family and loved ones about your decision.

Medical Students / Registrars

We are a training Practice. You may be offered an appointment with a qualified Doctor gaining experience in General Practice, or asked if one may be present while you consult your own Doctor. If you prefer to see your own Doctor in private, please say so. No-one will be offended.

We are also involved with the Exeter University Medical School and Plymouth University and provide training from time to time for Medical Students and Student Nurses. We will always ask your consent for students to be present during your consultation.

Post-GCSE Student Placement Programme Success

In June 2019 East Devon Health launched a student placement programme for students from schools across East Devon. Here at Haldon House Surgery, we had a lovely lady from ECC visit us for a week and saw every aspect of how the surgery works - she sat in with all members of staff for the full experience.

For more information (including a video of how the students felt the programme went), please visit the below website:
