We are now in the delay phase of our response to COVID-19. Due to the current situation, the directive for GP surgeries is to triage all patients with a telephone consultation in the first instance. Should the GP feel it is necessary to see you face-to-face, they will arrange the appointment themselves. We have also suspended all online pre-bookable appointments until further notice. If you have a non urgent medical query, please use our eConsult service on our website.
As of Monday 30th March 2020, the surgery will not be accepting any paper prescriptions in the short term due to Covid-19, We ask that all patients register for Systmonline to order your prescription. Please contact the surgery for our team to organise this for you. If you do not have internet access, please contact us and we will try to assist you with your prescription request.
Thank you for your cooperation at this difficult time.
People living in the TQ12 postcode area can register at Devon Square Surgery. You will need to fill in a registration form, which you can do online, or in person at the surgery.
We have a practice booklet which is available from the front desk of the surgery, which contains useful information about our services.
Medical treatment is available from the date of registration, although we are unable to issue medication until you have seen a practitioner. Please contact reception for further information.
At Devon Square Surgery the doctors operate a personal list, meaning each patient has a registered 'usual' doctor. Your registered doctor can be found on any prescription issued to you and on any correspondence we send you. If you are unsure who your registered doctor is please ask at reception.
If you wish to pre-register you need to complete BOTH of the online forms below.

1/ Registration Form
There is a telephone based translation service that the doctors and nurses can use during clinical consultations to aid communication.
Please let us know that you require this service when making the appointment, and which language you require, so that the doctor can pre arrange the telephone translation service.
If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.
You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.
To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
