We would like to inform all of our patients that Whipton Branch Surgery will be partially open as of Monday 18th May. You may be offered a face-to-face GP appointment there. However, like at Southernhay, doors are not open to public, and only patients who have an appointment booked at the site should visit.
Nurse clinics are currently only being held at Southernhay House Surgery.
To effectively triage our patients due to the COVID-19 outbreak, you are only able to book telephone appointments with a GP online, not face-to-face GP appointments, at this time. Select an appropriate appointment time and then the GP will call you. Do not come into the surgery for a GP appointment booked online at this time.
Alternatively, we suggest using eConsult to contact the doctors for help with a condition.
You can find more information about Coronavirus on our Information about Coronavirus page.
If you are asked to come into the surgery for an appointment, please wear a face covering. Public Health England has produced a guide to making cloth facemasks which are suitable for patients to wear when visiting hospital or other care settings.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
For non-emergency medical issues, when we are closed you will need to call NHS 111 (dial 111). This is a message handling service and the doctor on call will then telephone you back as soon as possible. You can find more information on NHS 111 here.
NEW Devon CCG is responsible for commissioning this service.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
