The St Leonard’s Practice provides GP and family doctor services to patients in Exeter, Wonford, Heavitree, St Leonard’s, Whipton, Stoke Hill and Pennsylvania.

ALL samples need to be clearly labelled and handed into reception before 12:30pm

There is a research department within the St Leonard's Practice, where the researchers meet regularly and there is a wider research group that includes patients, medical and nursing colleagues and other members of the practice administration team.

Dr Philip Evans is the lead research GP.  The research office is supported by Dr Kate Sidaway-Lee (Research Assistant) who is an experienced researcher with a PhD.

We also have an active patient representative, Mr Geoff Barr, and a consultant who also provides research support to the team, Professor Sir Denis Pereira Gray, who is a former GP partner of the Practice.

Our Nurse Practioner, Dawn Broadhurst, is actively involved in research.  Our Practice Manager, Lucille Hudson, also belongs to the research group.

The research team has special interests in areas of primary care research. These include:

We have established strategic links with the University of Exeter Medical School (UEMS) / Peninsula College of Medicine and Dentistry (PCMD), and the South West Peninsula Primary Care Research Network (PCRN SW – West Hub), of which Dr Evans is the Director.

The Practice was accredited in December 2006 for its R&D activities through the Primary Care Research Team Assessment exercise of the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP).  The RCGP accreditation process changed last year to a scheme known as ‘Research Ready’.  The Practice has successfully applied to be included in this scheme and has been accredited for research up to the end of December 2014.
