Castle Place is getting a lick of paint!!
We're delighted to announce that internal decoration work will start next week (24th November). This will undoubtedly cause some disruption to staff, patients and Doctors over the coming weeks.
Please bear with us during this work. We ...will endeavour to keep inconvenience to a minimum with the majority of work being completed whilst the Practice is closed; overnight and at weekends.
Normal services will continue but Doctors and Nurses will need to move around the building and work out of different rooms, whilst theirs is being decorated.
Please refer to our Reception Team if you have any problems when attending for appointments.

From the 6th January 2014, if you need to call the out of hours service the telephone number you need to ring is:
The 111 service will help you to find the right care to meet your needs including the Devon doctors service.
This number is free of charge to ring from landlines and mobiles although you will need 1p credit on your mobile phone.

A&E Attendances - go to A&E for life threatening emergencies only
We were shocked to find out how much it costs every time one of us goes to A&E. The CCG and practice has been working really hard to reduce inappropriate attendances but there are still approximately 300 A&E attendances every month. Every time we go it costs the NHS between £56 and £245—even if you leave before you are seen
