Health and Happiness
Our team are dedicated to your continued good health and approach your care with professionalism, discretion and friendliness. You can count on a warm welcome from everyone involved here at the practice.
Travel & Parking
Leatside Surgery is located on the southeast outskirts of Totnes, only a ‘stones throw’ from Morrison’s supermarket petrol station. The nearest bus stop is near ‘The Seven Stars Hotel’. Totnes mainline railway station is about half a mile away. ‘Bob the Bus’ comes to the surgery twice an hour.
We have a small car park, accessed from Babbage Road, which has designated spaces for disabled patients. Should this be full, there is a public pay & display car park approached by turning right back into Babbage Road and then turning right just before you get back to the roundabout (into Borough Park Road) and following that road.
Disabled Access & Facilities
We have a purpose built surgery with designated disabled parking spaces and level access to the building via power-assisted doors. We have the Induction Loop system and can provide a large font practice leaflet. We allow guide, or other assistance dogs into the premises and provide a range of high-backed winged chairs with a high seat base to assist elderly or disabled patients in standing or sitting. Private room facilities are available for patients with communication, reading or writing difficulties.
Named Accountable GP
All NHS GP practices now have to assign every patient a “Named Usual GP” who has responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services and ensure they are delivered where required. This previously only applied to patients aged 75 and above. Where patients aged 75+ have previously expressed a preference to have a particular doctor as their “Named Usual GP” this has been retained. No matter who your “Named Usual GP” is, patients at your practice can continue to see whoever they want to see in the GP team. Please ask at reception if you wish to know who has been allocated as your Named Accountable GP.
In 2017 the surgery will be closed for Staff Training from 1pm on the following dates: 23rd February, 15th June, 14th September and 16th November.
