Changes to Our Appointment System

CHANGES TO OUR APPOINTMENT SYSTEM

HELP US TO HELP YOU.

As we continue to work to support the patients of Dawlish some changes are being implemented at the surgery from 25TH OCTOBER 2021.

If you need medical assistance please try to call the surgery AS EARLY AS YOU CAN, the surgery opening hours are 08.30am-6.00pm.  Our team of trained Health Navigators will direct you to the most appropriate clinician to help resolve your issue, which might not always be a GP.  You will be offered an appropriate appointment which may range from the same or next day to two weeks.

Calls between 5.00pm and 6.00pm, will be assessed and UNLESS MEDICALLY URGENT will be offered an appointment within the next few days as above.

WHAT ABOUT EMERGENCIES? Always dial 999 in a life-threatening emergency.

THINK 111 FIRST -If it is not a life-threatening emergency please do call 111 or go to www.111.nhs.uk first where you can get quick expert advice.
