Dr Jon Dove

Townsend House Medical Centre are pleased to announce that Dr Jon Dove officially starts with the surgery on 2nd September, he joins the Practice as a full time Partner. He will also become the clinical representative for the Patient Participation Group Meetings.

“I attended medical school in London, which involved a stint in the Shetland Islands. Since qualification in 2010, my interests have included palliative care, kidney medicine and teaching. I have lived in Scotland and South East England, but have always harboured the desire to live and work by the sea in the West Country and am delighted that my dream is now coming true. When not working I enjoy spending time with my young family, playing jazz piano and fiddling with the guitar. I am keen to improve my skiing so that I can keep up with my wife!” Jon


From this week patients will now be able to book appointments with Doctors and Nurses up to 12 weeks in advance. For example: patients visiting the surgery for b12 injections will now be able to book their next appointment before leaving the surgery.
