Please advise our receptionists if you have a communication need to help us improve the way we contact and communicate with you.
We are changing the way we offer appointments on Monday 20th February.
In order to manage our increasing workload we are introducing a new way of working. Our GPs will offer a telephone consultation for all same day appointment requests as some of the issues may be dealt with by telephone. The Doctor will decide if a face to face appointment is required and will offer an appointment if appropriate.
For further information please follow this link.
Winter conditions can be seriously bad for our health, especially for people aged 65 or over, and people with long-term conditions. We want to help protect you and those you care for.
Self-care is the best choice to treat minor illnesses and injuries. A large range of common illnesses and injuries can be treated at home simply with over-the-counter medicines and plenty of rest. Visit our Self Care page for more information.
New voice messaging system
We are using a new voice messaging system. If you receive a telephone message starting with “This is a message from Bideford Medical Centre” please be assured that this a genuine message sent by us.
Please listen to the message in full and choose from the options. If you do not wish to receive these voice messages please speak to a member of the reception team.
