Extended Practice Opening Hours
All of these appointments will have to be pre-booked. This is not an extension to our opening hours.
To avoid potentially dangerous confusion, pre-booked appointments will be the only surgery activity.
Please see below for more information:
- The Government and Primary Care Trust have requested that we offer pre booked appointments on a Saturday morning. We have not been given a contract for providing an emergency service. The service we provide is aimed at patients who are unable to access our week day appointments, for example, because they are in full time work.
- Urgent problems and home visits 'out of hours' continue to be provided by Devon Doctors on call - this will operate as previously from Friday evening until Monday morning or Tuesday after a Bank Holiday.
- If you have come to the surgery with a problem which cannot wait until Monday morning, please make use of this 'out of hours' service by ringing 01822 852202 - please hold and you will be transferred to Devon Doctors, alternatively you can ring 111
- If you feel your problem can wait until the next working day, please leave a contact number for Monday morning (or Tuesday morning - after a Bank Holiday). You can reasonably assume that you will then be offered an appointment for the next working day. The call back doctor will ring you soon after 08:00.
