Armed Forces Veterans Practice
Budleigh Salterton Medical Centre is a Veteran Friendly Practice. Our lead veteran GP is Dr Brian Taylor.
It is important to us that we meet your needs and follow the Armed Forces Covenant. The covenant is a promise from the nation that those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly and it establishes how they should expect to be treated.
Please let the surgery know if you are a Veteran.
