When We Are Closed
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
In the evenings, at weekends and on bank holidays you will need to call “NHS 111” on 111. This is a message handling service and the doctor on call will then telephone you back as soon as possible.
NEW Devon CCG is responsible for commissioning this service.
Assistance can also be obtained from the following walk-in centres:
- 31 Sidwell Street, Exeter. Telephone 01392 276892.
- Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital A & E department. Telephone 01392 411611.
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.
NHS 111 is a service that's been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
