Dr Francis Carnegy

BSc (Hons) MB ChB DTMH MRCGP (2013)

GMC 6134599

Dr Francis Carnegy graduated from the University of Edinburgh in 2006, completing his GP training in the Scottish Borders in 2013.  He has had a varied and exciting career both home and abroad. 

This has ranged from being a solo GP on remote Scottish islands to 3 years working away in the spectacular Shuswap region of British Columbia.  Prior to qualifying as a GP he also had further cardiology and emergency medicine experience working in New Zealand. 

Alongside his NHS work he has  previously worked as a private GP both in London and Edinburgh.  In 2020 he finally settled in Devon with his family and works locally as a NHS GP Partner 4 days a week at Chillington Health Centre.

A personal approach 

Outside medicine, Dr Carnegy lives in a farmhouse on the edge of Dartmoor with his wife and three young daughters.  He’ll generally be found running around after them and paddling on the water when time allows. 

Passionate about people and medicine 

Dr Carnegy has a longstanding interest and expertise in care of the elderly. This experience has come from over fifteen years of being a GP and previous hospital experience. Whilst working in British Columbia, he also helped establish and run a dedicated day hospital for complex elderly assessments. 

Dr Carnegy is passionate about developing world and humanitarian medicine.  He holds a Diploma in Tropical Medicine & Hygiene (DTMH) that has allowed him to work in far-flung places over the years including Vanuatu, Mozambique and Zambia.  A real highlight was volunteering in the remote South Luangwa valley in Zambia in 2014.  Working in a rural health clinic, he provided essential medical care to the local native population.  Alongside this he provided private emergency care to visiting safari tourists which helped fund the clinic. 

Whilst happily settled in Devon, he keeps his tropical medicine interest alive by volunteering for the Virtual Doctors, a charity providing remote clinical support to rural clinics in Zambia and Malawi.  He is also an active member of UK-Med, an international humanitarian response charity, so may occasionally be called away at short notice for emergency deployments overseas.
