Covid-19 adaptations

Due to pressures on the 111 service, during the hours of 8 am till 7:30pm on weekends only we have opened a direct patient line 01895 379302 which is able to help you with virtual consultations for urgent medical problems. If you have COVID symptoms please call 111 or visit www.111.nhs.uk for advice. For non-COVID problems you can use this line and speak to a local GP for some advice. 

Outside these hours please call 111, or visit www.111.nhs.uk.

If you have run out of regular medication please remember that the pharmacists are able to issue you with an emergency supply until the practice is open, so please contact your pharmacist first.

There is significant pressure on the NHS at this time and we urge you to use the services responsibly

Covid-19 adaptations

The NHS is very busy responding to the coronavirus pandemic and, at certain times, your GP practice may need to prioritise patients with the most urgent health needs. 

 If you have a health issue that isn’t urgent, advice is available on the NHS website www.nhs.uk or NHS app or you can speak to your local pharmacist. You can also use e-consult which is available through our practice website https://devonshirelodge.webgp.com/  If you aren’t sure what to do, please contact the practice who can advise you on how to get the help you need.

 Please continue to attend tests, vaccinations and screening when invited.  

 www.111.nhs.uk is also available 24/7 for urgent health advice or by calling 111, and 999 is for emergencies.
