Partners – These are the GP Partners who own Redlands Primary Care
Dr Peter Twomey (m)
I qualified in 1984 from Guys Hospital, University of London, and moved to the South West to work in the late 80s. I have been a partner in practice here in Crediton since 1991. Medically I help deliver core general practice including routine and urgent care. I lead on strategic practice development along with one of my colleagues and recently together we have successfully applied to NHS England for funding to build a new primary care centre which has catalysed and enabled us to merge into a new partnership entity “Redlands Primary Care”, soon to collocate into new premises. My aim is to continue to deliver high quality patient centric care which meets the needs of the community.
I am married with two grown up sons and live locally. I have numerous hobbies and love being outdoors. I spend as much time as I can in the garden and in the countryside, and have a keen interest in environmental and related sustainability issues.
Dr Elizabeth Saunders (f)
I qualified at the University of Bristol in 1993 and have been a partner at Newcombes Surgery since 1999. I have special interests in womens’ health, family planning and sexual health. I have clinics every day except Wednesday. I am responsible for the training of F2 (junior doctors) within the practice.
Dr Mick Braddick (m)
I qualified in Manchester in 1981 and have worked as a GP in Crediton since 2003. Previously I worked in hospitals, research and health care planning; in Kenya, Scotland and the USA. I’m keen to help patients work out the health choices which suit them best, and where possible to avoid over investigation and over treatment. I don’t work at the practice on Thursdays. Special interests include asthma/COPD. Outside interests include films, gardening and nature.

I have worked at Chiddenbrook since 2006, my specialist roles within the surgery including fitting contraceptive coils and implants, and joint injections. Working three days a weeks (usually Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays) allows me to balance my working life and my family life. Away from work we love the outdoors, and as a family enjoy walking our way around the South West coast path.
