Multi Disciplinary Team

  • Hannah Boxall-Hunt

    Physician Associate

    MSc PA-R

    Background: After spending part of my youth growing up in Crediton, I moved away 10 years ago firstly to Aberdeen to study a BSc in Biomedical Sciences and then to London to become a Physician Associate, by completing a Masterís degree. I worked in a large southwest London GP surgery before being drawn back to Devon to be nearer my family and to settle with my fiancée in the countryside. I am thrilled to be part of a great team here and I am enjoying helping to pave the way to a more efficient and effective GP service in Devon.

    Interests: When not at work, you can find me in the kitchen baking or singing in choirs around the country.

  • Mad McDonald

    Primary Care Paramedic

    Background: I have been a Paramedic for 20 years and worked for Southwestern Ambulance Service for 23 years altogether. I made the decision to move into Primary Care a few years ago as I wanted to follow patients through and help on a long term basis rather than dealing with accidents and emergencies.

    I joined Okehampton Medical Centre in October 2019. My main role is working within the 'Same Day Team'. This team speaks to all the patients that contact the surgery when they need urgent treatment. I also do home visits for the acutely unwell that cannot get into surgery for assessment and help within the MIU.

    Primary Care medicine is a whole new textbook of medicine and I am thoroughly enjoying my move.

    Okehampton Medical Centre is a very progressive surgery and are one of only a handful that use Paramedics within Devon. It does seem to surprise people when I introduce myself as a Paramedic that works in the surgery however the Paramedic profession within Primary Care is quickly becoming the norm.

    Interests: In my spare time I have a smallholding with a few Devon and Cornwall Longwool sheep - which I have started to show - also chickens, ducks, dogs and cats. I am an avid Exeter Chiefs rugby fan as well and can be found in East Terrace on a Saturday afternoon.

  • Beth Pell

    Primary Care Paramedic

    Background: Having worked in Emergency Care as a Paramedic in the Midlands in both rural and City Centre settings my family moved to the South West 6 years ago to be closer to family. Since moving I have worked as a Transformation Lead for Devon Partnership Trust and within Clinical advice for Devon and Cornwall out of hours Doctors Service and 111 . I joined Okehampton Medical Centre in April 2021 so I could continue to develop my skills with patient contact within Primary Care.

    I work as part of a group of Clinicians within the "Same day team" contacting patients by telephone, at the clinic or on home visits when required. We all come from a variety of Clinical backgrounds which helps us to support each other in providing the best possible patient care.

    Alongside my role at Okehampton Medical Centre I continue to work on the front line as an Emergency Paramedic and I also support with 111 and out of hours services as I find this helps me take a holistic approach when considering the patient treatment pathway.

    Interests: My favourite days are spent watching a good film at the movies, enjoying a nice meal out or most of all spending a beautiful summers evening on the beach with my family watching the sun go down.
