Welcome to Port Isaac Surgery. Port Isaac Practice, as it is today, has been in existence since the late 1940s. It is a rural practice covering approximately 90 square miles in North Cornwall. It comprises of one main surgery at Port Isaac and branch surgeries at Wadebridge and St. Kew.

We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.


Starting 3rd June 2019

Changes to our appointment services 

General practice across the country is facing unprecedented challenges in workforce recruitment with increasing complexity and demand for primary care. Changes in workforce at a national and local level have an impact on the way primary care is run. Following recent changes in clinical staffing at Port Isaac Surgery, we have undertaken a review of how we can continue to deliver services to our patients in a safe, sustainable way.

 The practice will be moving to a new model of providing care, adopting systems widely used across the country. The aim is to ensure that we are able to provide efficient care tailored to our patient’s different needs. For example, urgent and acute illnesses compared to routine, long term care and follow up.

 Main Points:

Care will be provided using a range of clinicians including

  • Doctor
  • Nurse
  • Pharmacists
  • Specialist paramedics.

Reception Team:

  • Have been trained in ensuring that patients see the right person at the right time 
  • Rely on information provided by patients to facilitate this.
  • Where this information is not available, we will be unable to ascertain what appointment type is required and will offer the next available routine appointment.

Routine Appointments: 

  • Still be available to be booked in advance (up to two weeks)
  • Will be either face to face or by telephone, at a time and location that is convenient.
  • Patients with very specific requirements may find they need to wait longer before a suitable appointment becomes available. 

Urgent care requiring on the day assessment:

  • Will be under the care of an acute clinician.
  • May be dealt with over the phone, or at one of our surgeries
  • We may not be able to offer a choice of clinician or surgery site.

 Appointment Booking:

  • To ensure fair and equitable access to booking appointments, we will no longer be able to take bookings at the reception desk.
  • All appointments will need to be booked over the phone or online, and we will be improving access and accessibility to booking appointments in this way.

The improvements to our service that are outlined above are aimed at ensuring a safe and sustainable future for Port Isaac Surgery and our patients. We strive to provide a modern, efficient primary care service.​

We would appreciate the support and help of our patients in this process


Thank you
