To date the practice has not had to close due to adverse weather conditions. However, in the event of particularly bad weather, please phone the surgery before you travel to check that we are still open. We would not want patients to risk travelling only to find that we have had to close/reduce services.
111 is the NHS non-emergency number. It’s fast, easy and free. Call 111 and speak to a highly trained adviser, supported by healthcare professionals. They will ask you a series of questions to assess your symptoms and immediately direct you to the best medical care for you.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
If you have difficulties communicating or hearing, you can use the NHS 111 service through a textphone by calling 18001 111.
Calls are connected to the TextDirect system and the textphone will display messages to tell you what is happening. A typetalk relay assistant will automatically join the call. They will talk back what you've typed to the NHS 111 adviser and, in return, type back the adviser’s conversation, so you can read it on your textphone's display or computer.
NHS 111 offers a video relay service that allows you to make a video call to a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter. The BSL interpreter will call an NHS 111 adviser on your behalf and you’re then able to have a real-time conversation with the NHS 111 adviser, via the interpreter.
You will need a webcam, a modern computer and a good broadband connection to use this service. Visit NHS 111 BSL interpreter service for more details, including an online user guide.
There is also a confidential interpreter service, which is available in many languages. Simply mention the language you wish to use when the NHS 111 operator answers your call.
NHS 111 Service Feedback
Our confidence in the system is built, in no small way, on the robust feedback and complaints process that we have instigated. Managed by the Devon PACT team on behalf of the CCGs, this system works across providers to analyse and respond to all feedback we receive.
We would appreciate if you c ould act as our eyes and ears throughout the count y . We look at every incident reported to us. T his does take time , we do our best to respond as quickly as possible but we do look at each case in considerable detail which takes time. We are hoping to make this a much slicker process very soon. We would appreciate though "If you see something - say something" , the more feedback we receive the better service we can provide. Our email address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Should a more immediate response be required than email, you can contact the PALS team on:
0300 123 1672 or 01392 267665
