Dr David Barratt
MB ChB M.R.C.G.P D.R.C.O.G
Qualified 1988, Bristol
After graduating from Medical School in Bristol, I moved to Devon to do my General Practice training in and around Exeter. I spent 16 years in General Practice in Torbay working part- time, and sharing in bringing up four of my children. I moved to Barton Surgery in 2010 to take up a full time post in General Practice. I sit on the Baywide Consortium Board, represent GP’s at the Torbay Children’s Safeguarding Board and chair the local Children’s Clinical Pathway Group. I also have an interest in Diabetes.
I have five children, two labradors and my interests are walking and sailing and caravanning when weather permits!
Dr Paul Barton
M.B.B.S., D.R.C.O.G., M.R.C.G.P.Qualified 1985 Westminster Hospital, London
I have been with the practice since April Fool's Day 1990! I trained at the Westminster Hospital in London and then moved straight down to Torquay where I did a variety of hospital jobs (general surgery, medicine, paediatrics, obstetrics and gynaecology, ENT and psychiatry) as well as my General Practice training at Pembroke House Surgery in Paignton.
In medicine I enjoy all aspects of general practice, having an interest in Minor Surgery, Child Development, Sports Injuries and Internet Medicine.
Out of the surgery I am married to Tessa, have 3 wonderful children and a variable number of cats, dogs and other pets. I try to keep fit and am closely involved in my church.

Dr Jenny Willmer graduated from Oxford University Medical School and did her 4 years postgraduate training in Oxfordshire before joining Barton Surgery and settling in Devon in 1989. She has worked as a full time GP since that time, seeing patients with a full range of medical problems, with further interests in paediatrics, child development, obstetrics and gynaecology and family planning.
Out of the surgery she is married to Richard with one child, Robert. She is a keen dinghy sailor, sailing competitively with her husband, and the whole family are enthusiastic skiers.
Dr Phil Shute
M.B.B.S., D.R.C.O.G., M.R.C.G.P. Qualified 1980 St. Mary's Hospital, London
I'm Philip Shute, a proud Devonian, husband to Dawn with 2 sporting kids.
I graduated from St Mary's Hospital Medical School in 1980 and worked my first postgraduate jobs in St Mary's. I then spent 4 years in a variety of hospital jobs and general practice before returning home to South Devon to join Barton Surgery in 1985. My professional passion is general practice in general, "warts and all" (all my hospital posts left me longing for involvement in whole-family-medicine).
Outside medicine (if there is anytime left over) I am Medical Officer to Devon Amateur Swimming Association and a swimming judge though my first love in sport is Rugby (I was pretty good!).
Dr Sarah Parkin
I have been with the Practice since May 2007 having completed GP training in Plymouth in 2006.
I trained at St Georges Hospital in London and following an attachment in the West Country during my final year I decided to start my career down here. I obviously enjoyed it as I have been here ever since. I have worked in Hospital specialising in Oncology, Obstetrics, Gynaecology, Elderly Care, General Surgery and General Medicine.
I married in December 2007 and often trek up North to see my family.
In medicine I have always wanted to be a GP and am delighted to be settled at Barton! I particularly enjoy teaching our medical students and I do the 8 week developmentals on newborns.
The joy of General Practice is the wide variety of problem cases we see along with a chance to foster strong professional relationships with our patients over many years and I very much look forward to developing this as time goes on.
Dr Antje Ronneberger
Qualified 1995, Berlin
I was born and bred in East Germany. After graduating from Medical School in Berlin in 1995 I started to work in England as a Junior Doctor originally just for a year but fell in love with Devon very quickly and decided to do my GP training at Torbay Hospital and move to Devon permanently. I worked as a Locum GP in the area for 5 years before joining Barton Surgery as a salaried GP in 2007.
My special interest is Sexual Health.
I’m a keen sailor and enjoy travelling, skiing, cooking and walking my dog.
