Due to essential maintenance which has to talk place during clinic hours we are having to close our service in Exeter tomorrow morning – 30.09.21.
During that time we will be unable to review walk-in or emergency patients. However we will be noting all patients who have emergencies and all patients under 16 years of age for a call back when normal service is resumed in the afternoon (after 1pm). Please do still contact the service if you require:
We would advise all patients over 16 years of age with issues other than those listed above to consider calling back on Friday or Monday when we expect normal service to be resumed. With current levels of demand on our service we would expect our phone lines to be incredibly busy for the next few working days. Please bear with us and continue to call our telephone triage line.
