If you require urgent care that cannot wait until the practice re-opens, please call NHS 111, where your needs will be assessed and you will be directed to the most appropriate service.
If the situation is life threatening 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.
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
Important - These 4 reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.
