Coronavirus

Any patients requiring information about testing should visit the NHS website. Testing is now available to symptomatic people over the age of 5.  Patients who do not have access to or cannot use the internet can call a dedicated phone line below, which can be used to order a test if no other options are available.

The Coronavirus Testing Call Centre can be contacted on 0300 303 2713 between the hours of 07.00 and 23.00.  The majority of test results are sent automatically to the individual within four days but for any that aren’t, the Call Centre can help individuals to follow up on their results.

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

  • Get involved

    We encourage patients to be actively involved with the Practice to help develop and improve health and social care for the people of Totnes. It is hoped that the Patient Participation Group (PPG) will act as a ‘critical friend’ to the surgery and strike a balance between support-ing the surgery in its efforts to improve facilities whilst, at the same time, being willing to voice concerns where problems are identified.

    The Group could learn more about how the surgery is run as an independent business contracted to work for the NHS. Patients can take part in influencing how the service is delivered to improve the healthcare of all patients. In turn, patients will become more aware of the financial constraints which have to be taken into account when considering the provision of services.

    It is hoped that the development of the PPG will facilitate patients working together with health professionals to improve services to everybody.

    If you would like to be involved in the PPG initiative, please give your details to a member of our reception staff. We can then keep you updated with information about the forum and the meetings.
