We apologise to our patients that we have been unable to obtain enough locum cover to be able to provide our usual appointment availability over the next few weeks. All doctors are working extra sessions to try and cover the deficit, however you may still experience difficulty booking appointments with your usual doctor within the time you might feel appropriate.
The following link is very helpful in providing information on self care and signposting to other agencies, ie Pharmacies, Walk-In Centres, on-line resources and Minor Injury Units. If you would like to try these before contacting the surgery, it would be appreciated.
Thank you for your patience.
All residents of Mid Devon have recently been sent a leaflet explaining about the Care.Data programme. The programme aims to use health data from GP surgeries to improve health care.

If however after reading the information provided you would like to opt out, please complete the attached form and return it to the surgery.

For a quick and convenient way to register as a patient, order your repeat medication, book appointments and change your address details, have you registered onto SystmOnline yet? If not, go to the section 'Online Services' at the bottom of this page for more information, or ask when you come into the surgery. Registering is very quick and easy and could save you some time in future.
If you have a mobile telephone, we can now send you text confirmations and reminders for booked appointments, as well as test results. Please let the surgery know if you would like to make use of this service so we can amend your medical records accordingly.
