Patient AccessClick this link to be taken to the Patient Access website  (clicking this link will open a new window) 

On this page you will find the links to enable you to register with Patient Access.  This system allows you to order repeat medications, book appointments and keep your contact details up to date.  In order to register to use this service, you will need to show some photographic identification to a member of our reception team who will then be able to print off your unique registration key.  Once you have this key, you'll be able to logon to Patient Access and access your details.  Once you are set up with the service you can also download the Patient Access application for your mobile phone or tablet - available for IOS and Android.  Please note that any prescription requested will still need to be signed (either electronically or by hand) by a GP and therefore we ask you request them at least 48 hours before they are required.  Due to the complexities of nurse appointments, you are only able to book blood tests online.

Have Your Say


Welcome to Leatside Surgery

Welcome to our surgery website where we hope you will quickly benefit from a user friendly layout and a wealth of information about our healthcare services. Find out when we’re open and what to do when we’re not, all from the comfort of your own home.

CQC Inspection Report 2015/16

Leatside Surgery has been rated "Outstanding" following our recent inspection by the Care Quality Commission. The full report can be found here.

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.

Staff Training

2019 dates when the surgery will be closed for staff training from 1pm are under the news section and Opening Times, then Training Afternoons.
