When We Are Closed
Outside normal surgery hours the practice Devon Doctors On-call. This service has an out-of-hours treatment centre where doctors can see patients in an emergency. Home visits can also be arranged if necessary via this service.
If you need a doctor in a medical emergency for advice or treatment when the surgery is closed, please telephone 111.
You should only contact the number in a medical emergency and not for non-urgent problems that should be dealt with by arranging an appointment during normal surgery hours.
Please note that all contacts to the out-of-hours service are recorded and the patient's doctor is informed.
