Welcome to Sid Valley Practice
We serve the surrounding communities of Sidmouth and have around 14,600 patients registered with us. We operate from two sites; the main surgery is the 'The Beacon Medical Centre' and the Branch Surgery is the 'Blackmore Health Centre'. The Practice also has strong links to the Victoria Cottage Hospital in Sidmouth.
We are proud to hold a 'Good' rating from our most recent CQC inspection with outstanding ratings from our work with the elderly population.
