Access to urgent medical care

If you require urgent medical attention please dial 111

In the event of a life-threatening medical emergency please dial 999


Access to urgent care via the NHSquicker app

This free app provides live waiting and travel times for NHS services providing urgent care across Devon and Cornwall. NHSquicker provides information about the healthcare services available to you based on your location, helping you to choose the right services and spend less time waiting. The combined travel and waiting times estimate how long it will take you to be seen by each service.

Our emergency departments are busy, and often - for a minor injury - you could be seen quicker elsewhere.

Please remember to ring 999 in the event of a life-threatening emergency. NHSquicker gives you information about minor injuries units (MIUs), emergency departments, pharmacies, dentists, opticians, sexual health clinics and GP surgeries. If you are not sure where to go, you can dial 111 and they will direct you to the most appropriate place for your needs.

The information feed is provided by Northern Devon Healthcare NHS Trust (NDHT), Plymouth Hospitals NHS Trust, Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust (RCHT), Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust (RD&E), South Western Ambulance Services NHS Foundation Trust (SWASFT), Torbay & South Devon NHS Foundation Trust (TSDFT) and Claremont Medical Practice.
