Welcome to St Levan Surgery Online
Welcome to our website, which we hope will keep you informed and help you to make the best use of our services and facilities. We are a five doctor practice, based in a modern purpose-built surgery.
Our aim is to provide caring, high quality healthcare and advice in a welcoming and supportive environment. We are a forward-thinking practice, committed to learning and to improving the services we offer you.
See A doctor Today!
Our practice is one of the first surgeries in England and the first in Plymouth to introduce the “GP Access" service, designed to give you easy telephone access to a doctor . We offer every patient who requests a doctor's appointment or advice the opportunity to speak to a GP over the phone, usually within an hour.
This means you can get immediate advice for your healthcare problem. If you need an appointment the doctor can arrange this for a time that suits you best. Most of our patients choose to see the doctor on the same day. However our system means that, if you prefer, you can book an appointment in advance – just ask the doctor if you would like to be seen on a different day. Please phone before 10.30am if at all possible
Easy access to phone advice means patients don’t have to make unnecessary visits to the doctor – great for busy people, carers, parents and people who work. Click here for more information about this system.
We recognise that a few of our patients do not have access to a phone or have difficulty using one (e.g. because of hearing or language difficulties). If this is the case and you wish to see or speak to a doctor, please come to the surgery and talk to our receptionists about how we can best help you.
Out of Hours
NHS England have now introduced the 111 service. its aim is make it easier for patients to access local health services when they have an urgent need. It replaces NHS direct. If you need to contact a GP out of hours please dial 111. They will then direct you to the most appropriate service including Devon Doctors.
Is a new scheme which allows people with certain minor ailments and conditions to go straight to their pharmacist to receive a consultation without needing to visit their GP to get a prescription first.
Your Pharmacist is a qualified health care professional who can help with your health problems and will offer you a private space to talk with you about your symptoms.
If it is something more serious, then they will direct you appropriately
