What do I do when the surgery is closed?

Out of Hours Emergencies

Between 6pm and 8am weekdays and all weekend, there is a doctor on call for emergencies. These duties are shared by all the doctors in North Devon, a service called Devon Doctors.

If you require urgent advice or treatment when the surgery is closed, please call 111. (Calls to the out of hours service may be recorded).  Your call will be answered by an advisor who will ask you some questions to assess your symptoms.

111 will give you the healthcare advice your need or direct you to the appropriate local service – for example Devon Doctors for a GP, minor injuries unit, emergency department, community nurse or pharmacy.
