St Erme Medical is an independent sector General Practice lead by Dr Sarah Gray. She has provided specialist advice in women’s health and general practice for over 30 years, seeing patients privately for 20 of these. She was joined by Dr Jane Davis in 2019. We will have our own premises in 2021 and with an expanded team will then be able to offer a broader range of services.
We have previously seen our patients either in the Duchy Hospital Truro or Nuffield Health Hospital in Plymouth. The COVID-19 emergency meant that we lost access to the hospitals in March 2020 and have been offering consultations by telephone or secure video. We do now have limited capacity to see patients face to face in temporary facilities in Central Cornwall. These require use of PPE so often a video consultation may be preferred.
We can arrange blood and other tests and are beginning to be able to refer again for imaging or a consultant opinion. We offer private prescriptions and can arrange delivery.
What can we offer?
We offer time that is not often available in NHS settings, experience and an extended opportunity to discuss your concerns. The opinion provided is that of the doctor you see. We cannot arrange NHS services on your behalf and cannot expect the NHS to act on our recommendations, though this may happen…

- Do not have a cough
- Do not have a loss of smell/taste
- Have not had any of these symptoms in the last 10 days
You will be asked to use hand sanitiser on arrival.
