Protecting The NHS For The Future  

To help to protect the NHS for everyone, Ide Lane Surgery are supporting an initiative to help avoid unnecessary attendances at Accident and Emergency. A&E are set up to manage emergencies well, whereas General Practice is far better suited to the management of non-emergencies. Patients attending Accident and Emergency unnecessarily can put the health of critically ill patients at risk, while receiving less suitable management of their own problems. In addition, the extra cost takes resources away from other services. If you are not sure whether your health problem is a medical emergency, please see this campaign page.


Please note that the surgery closes every Thursday lunchtime from 12.30 to 1.30 pm. 

When the surgery is closed there is always a doctor "on call" for urgent medical care.  Please call NHS Devon 111 by telephoning 111.
