Cases of Mumps in Students attending University
We would like to draw your attention the the real need to be fully vaccinated against Mumps. This is achieved following 2 doses of MMR. If you are unsure if you have been vaccinated please contact the Surgery and we will be able to review your records.
If you would like to book an appointment for an MMR vaccination, which we encourage, please contact Reception and request to see the Practice Nurse; this can be administered at Fowey, Par and Polruan by appointment.
Dr Jan Knobloch, Salaried GP joins Fowey River Practice
I qualified in Hanover, Germany, in 1998. Before taking part in an exchange program for junior doctors in 2001, I worked in renal medicine at the University Hospital in Hanover.
I spent one year working at St Thomas’ Hospital in London where I met my wife Emmeline.
I completed my GP training in 2006 (VTS Bath/Swindon). I continued to work at my Wiltshire training practice after qualification as a salaried GP.
In 2007 I moved to Cornwall and started work at The Park Medical Centre in St Austell as a GP partner which later merged to form St Austell Healthcare (2015).
I left St Austell Healthcare at the beginning of 2018 to look for new challenges.
Emmeline and I have 3 boys and we enjoy a busy family life.
I see myself very much as a medical generalist who enjoys the broad variety of presentations every day general practice has to offer. I am very excited to have joined The Fowey River Practice and hope to fit in well with the patient-centred/team based philosophy of this practice.

GP Registrar joining us in August - Dr Luke
I initially qualified as a physiotherapsit in 2007 before switching to undertake a medical degree at Aberdeen university. I qualified in 2013 after graduating with honours and moved to work in Cornwall. After a brief venture as a pathology trainee in Brighton I moved back to Cornwall to start GP training. I have worked in many different hospital rotations over the past 5 years but feel most at home in general practice. I am also an educational scholar which means I have an interest in medical education and contribute to local medical training. I have also recently completed a PGcert qualification in this field.
I am married and have a 16 month old boy called Hamish. I am happiest when we are all together digging sandcastles or rummaging in rock pools! In my spare time I like to swim in the sea or go on long bike rides to relax and enjoy everything Cornwall has to offer.

List Maintenance Project
Registration letters from NHS England – please respond if you get one, otherwise the process to remove you from our practice list will begin.
The NHS is carrying out work in Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly to make sure the patient details on GP lists are accurate. Letters are being sent to some patients, but not all.
If you do receive a letter, please either confirm your details or submit any changes. Changes can be made by returning the form in the prepaid envelope. If the details are correct, you can confirm by freepost, by freephone, via text message or online.
It is important to respond to the letter, as GP lists do get out of date over time. If we don’t have an accurate record of your name and address, then we or a hospital may not be able to contact you with important information.
We may also need to contact you:
- with test results
- to invite you for bowel, breast or cervical screening to protect against cancer, for example
- to offer vaccination against infectious diseases such as flu or measles, mumps and rubella
- to give you an appointment as part of your plan to stay healthy
- if you have a long-term illness
Please respond to the letter within four weeks, so the NHS can be certain about your details. Otherwise, the NHS will assume that you have moved away, and begin the process to remove you from the practice list.
