The GPs

Dr Kelsey Boddington MBBCh Hons MRCGP - GP Clinical Lead

I grew up in a small village on the edge of Exmoor. After completing my GCSEs at South Molton Community College, I was offered a full scholarship to attend Lester B. Pearson United World College of the Pacific to complete the International Baccalaureate. I then took a unique opportunity to complete a pilot gap year programme affiliated with the college, spending six months in Uganda and then six months in a small Inuit community in the Northwest Territories of Canada. My time in Canada and Africa was full of eye opening experiences enriched with diverse cultural experiences. It also gave me an important appreciation of my local community that I had left behind in Devon.

In 2003, I returned to the UK to attend Cardiff University to complete a six year medical degree. I took up rowing for the University team for some of that time and thoroughly enjoyed living and studying all over Wales. I was extremely lucky to have been offered an opportunity by Drs Berger and Bird to work in reception for the surgery during my summer holidays throughout my medical degree. The summers at Trumpington House gave me an invaluable exposure to the administrative side of General Practice and inspired my postgraduate pursuit of Family Medicine.

On graduating in 2009, I returned to North Devon to work as a junior doctor. I worked in various specialities in North Devon District Hospital before embarking on my General Practice training in 2011. In August 2014, much to my delight, I returned to Exmoor Medical Centre to complete the GP Vocational Training Scheme and qualified in August 2016.

My husband works as an Agronomist in the local area. We are blessed with two girls who keep us very busy! We live near South Molton and strive to become self-sufficient with a variety of animals and a very rugged vegetable patch! My current hobbies include running and playing the piano when time allows!

 Dr Michelle Colley BMBS MRCGP – GP

I grew up in the West Midlands and after causing my parents considerable stress needing childhood treatment for hearing loss and cleft palate became very interested in becoming a doctor. I was very happy to attend university in the South West with Peninsula Medical School. I was disappointed not to be a pro-surfer by graduation but did manage to complete my elective placement in the Hamptons, New York.  After graduating I worked as a junior doctor at Queens Medical Centre in Nottingham followed by Lincoln County Hospital, where I met my now husband, Andrew, a police detective. After marrying in 2016 we were very happy to announce the arrival of our baby daughter in early 2019.

I love everything about General Practice however have a particular interest in Women’s Health and Palliative Care. When I am not working I am usually balancing caring for my young daughter with exploring the coastline, keeping fit, baking and dressmaking (although being far from competent in these!). I was very happy to secure a job with Exmoor Medical Centre as a salaried GP in 2017 and love working with our (pretty amazing!) team.
