Patient Access

When booking GP appointments it is important that you only select the Surgery Branch that you are registered with.

This will allow you to see and request your repeat medication, book GP but not Nurse appointments and tell us about changes in your address or contact details.

You can apply to do this if you are over 16 years old and permanently registered with the Practice. To complete your registration we will need to see proof of identity.

More detailed information, including a guide to registering for this service, can be found at:

Evening and Weekend Appointments in Devon

Patients across Devon from October 2018 will have the ability to access routine pre-bookable appointments in the evenings and at weekends.

It is not  a walk-in service.

Appointments cannot be booked after 1800 for weekday evening surgeries, after 1800 on Friday for the weekend surgeries or over the weekend for Monday evening appointments.

The aim of the GP Improved Access Service is to make it easier for people to get a routine appointment at a time that suits them. It is an extension of the existing GP service.

Practices across Devon are working together to provide the service and individual GP Practices are promoting it to their patients.

Please be aware that the surgeries are run each evening in one of several GP Practices in Devon and therefore patients may not see their usual GP or attend their usual GP surgery on a particular day.

Mid Devon Medical Patient Participation Group

We have established a Patient Participation Group in order to help shape our service for your future care.

The purpose of a Patient Participation Group is:

• To give Practice staff and Patients the opportunity to discuss topics of mutual interest.
• To provide a means for Patients to make constructive suggestions about the Practice and specific medical conditions.
• To give a Patient view on proposed changes to service
• To encourage Health Education activities within the Practice.
• To develop self-help projects to meet the needs of fellow Patients,       e.g. befriending, help with transport and bereavement support .
• To act as a representative group that can be called upon to influence the local provision of Health and Social Care.

The aims of the Patient Participation Group:

• To be a voice for the Patients.
• To help the Patients to understand Practice decisions.
• Aim to maintain and improve Patient satisfaction and experience.
• Be a link between the Patient, the Partners and Practice staff.
• Support the Practice in continuing to improve the service to the Patients and discuss our Practice performance data.
• Help patients to understand how they can build on responsibility for their own health.

If you are a Mid Devon Medical Practice patient and you are interested in giving us some of your time please make contact with Ms Vicki Cole either:

Text messaging to patients ...

We have introduced a service that will allow us to text you with various information such as reminders for flu clinics, medication reviews and annual medical reviews.

To begin with we are launching this service with Appointment Reminders ...

You will receive a text confirming your appointment once you have booked it and also a reminder of that appointment the day before.

To benefit from this service you will need to provide a current mobile number to the surgery.

We have sent a text message to all patients for whom we have a mobile number to allow them to opt out from this service.
