Call 111 when it's less urgent than 999

When the Practice is closed, please call 111 when you need medical help fast but itís not a 999 emergency. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.

You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.

For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.


We provide a full range of NHS services, which we are contracted to provide under NHS England Devon, Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Area Team. These services include maternity, contraception, minor surgery and child health surveillance services.

Patients, including new patients joining the practice, will be offered consultations for a health check as part of our programme of health promotion.

Repeat Prescriptions

We are able to automatically dispense your medications each month; this will mean that you no longer need to remember to order your medications. We will check with you when you collect your medications to see if there are items that you do not require the following month.

Alternatively patients requiring a repeat prescription of their medication may send their repeat slip into the surgery. Repeat Prescriptions may also be ordered through this Web site here. Please give three working days' notice (excluding Saturdays).


In common with all UK general practices, your records are stored electronically in our computer system. Rigorous safeguards are employed to prevent unauthorised access to stored information and your rights are fully covered by the Data Protection Act 1998. NHS England has access to certain parts of the system in order to obtain data for audit and management purposes; however, this excludes access to any information which identifies any individual by name. The Freedom of Information Act 2000 allows you access to any records we hold about you.

We appreciate that in a rural community you may have family or friends who work at the practice; we have strict confidentiality policies which all staff work to and respect.

Disabled Facilities

The surgery provides easy access for those with disabilities. There are disabled parking bays at the entrance and all toilets are equipped with disabled facilities. Please let the receptionist know if you have problems with sight or hearing so appropriate help can be provided.

Private Services

Certain services are not provided by the NHS. You will be advised of the fees applicable when you request any services not covered by NHS regulations.
