Your Appointment. Your Choice.
We offer a number of different appointments to meet your needs. Sometimes it is important to see your GP face to face, sometimes all you need is some advice.
We offer telephone consultations, and video consultations where you can speak with your doctor on a video link via your Smart phone, from work or from home.
You can also contact us via our practice email which is useful for sending in email enquiries.
Our Healthcare apps
We will shortly be introducing our new Healthcare App called Airmid.
You could also check out and contact us via e-consult our really useful online triage tool. You can even attach photographs of skin lesions and rashes.
Routine Pre-Bookable Appointments
Appointments are made for the Exmouth Health Centre and Treetops (branch surgery), either by using our On-line Services by visiting Reception at either site, by telephoning 01395 226530 during office hours OR by using our online services.
If you think you may need more time with your GP, please mention this to the receptionist when making an appointment. In most cases this will be best dealt with by your doctor, who will know you best, but In the event that your GP is unavailable you will be offered an appointment with another doctor.
Sometimes things can’t wait. If you feel you need to be seen urgently on the day, we have a nurse and doctor duty team who will be pleased to either see you in person or speak with you on the telephone. Please ring the appointments number 01395 226530
Quite often health related queries can be dealt with very quickly and effectively over the telephone. This allows for prompt assessment of your problem. Investigations can be booked, and we can discuss your results with you too.
We are happy to address your health needs by email
These are very similar to a face-to-face appointment. This is where you speak to a doctor using the video camera in your smartphone, tablet or computer. This could save you a trip up to the health centre.
Life is busy and your time is precious. We are happy to offer you appointments outside normal working hours which are primarily for those who work. We offer appointment for you early on Monday Mornings and Monday Evenings. We are even open on Saturday mornings and some Sundays. If you would like to book one of these appointments, please phone reception or book via SystemOnline.
Nurse Practitioners and Practice Nurses
You may wish to consider booking an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many aspects of your healthcare and you may be seen more quickly.
Home visits are specifically intended for our most vulnerable housebound patients. They generally each day between 12:00pm and 3:00pm. Home visits requests should be made as early in the day as possible and before 11:00am. We will always phone you back first so we can best assess your needs. These appointments are precious so we would ask that anyone who is able to make it to the Practice for an appointment should do-so.
Out of Hours
Outside of our opening times Devon Doctors are available via NHS111
