When We Are Closedclosed_sign

For urgent medical attention (when the surgery is closed) telephone NHS 111.

Emergency calls to Devon Doctors on Call, outside surgery hours, 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.
