The above are the times that the surgery doors are open - appointment start and finish times may vary.

Telephone lines for the surgery are open from 08:30 to 18:00 every day.

Enhanced Access for evening pre booked appointments are available on Wednesday and Thursday with the last appointment available at 19:45. 

For our evening pre booked appointments on these days the main surgery doors are shut from 18:00 as usual and when you arrive for your appointment please go to the left rear side of the building to use the side door.  There is a buzzer to speak to the Healthcare Administration Team and gain access.

Please either telephone us on 01271 323443 or call-in to our help desk if you wish to check individual GP’s and/or allied health professionals’ consulting days and times for when you would like to see him/her, as they may fluctuate.

When We Are Closed

For urgent medical attention (when the surgery is closed) telephone NHS 111. Calls will be taken by a trained telephonist who will take your details and an outline of your problem.

A healthcare professional will call you back with telephone advice or he/she may arrange for you to be seen at the treatment centre at Barnstaple Hospital or at your home if appropriate.

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.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
