When We Are Closed
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and/or acute shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
After 18:00 and at weekends, the practice is covered by the Devon Doctors Co-operative. If you have an urgent medical problem that cannot wait until the surgery re-opens, please phone 01363 772227 and follow the instructions. http://www.devondoctors.co.uk/
In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed, you can call 111 to speak to a trained advisor. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see another health professional.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Our e-Consult service is available 24/7
eConsult is the new way to get medical advice. From now on we'd like to encourage patients to contact us online rather than by phone. Most people can complete the online form in less than 4 minutes, which will be reviewed by a clinician by the end of the next working day. The software spots urgent problems and triggers an appropriate response. eConsults are best done via the NHS App, so if you have a smartphone or tablet do take 5 minutes to register now.
Please note we aim to respond to your eConsult within 2 working days, so if you submit an eConsult after 6pm on a Friday, you may not receive a response until the following Tuesday.
