Walk-Ins

We want to ensure that all our patients get high quality care at the right time. In order to do this, we need to ask our patients to phone the surgery first, rather than walking in and asking to be seen by a GP there and then.

It may be that some concerns could be dealt with promptly on the phone, some concerns may require the attention of a nurse or pharmacist instead and if a GP is required, we may be able to give you a more specific time to attend (that day if needed). There is not always a GP present in the surgery, due to home visits, and turning up unannounced may not enable the best care to take place.

Many thanks for your help with this matter.

 

Appointments with the health visitor: Telephone - (01392) 453440

Our health visitors offer health advice and support. They are based at West Exe Childrens Centre, Cowick street, Exeter EX4 1HL. They are involved with families who have children under 5 years of age. You can see your health visitor at the Children's centre or in your own home. Baby clinics are held in the Community Centre on Tuesday morning 11.00-12.00.
