Building Works at Leatside: We are conducting an extensive redevelopment of our reception area between 18th January and 31st March. Whilst we have taken steps to keep any inconvenience to a minimum there may be some disruption. We would like to thank you all for your patience and understanding during this period.
Registration Letters from NHS England.
These are currently being sent to some of our patients to make sure that our patient details are up to date. If you receive one please complete it or confirm the details are correct within four weeks, otherwise the NHS will assume that you have moved away and will begin the process of removing you from our list. You can respond by returning the form in the prepaid envelope if any information needs changing; or if it is correct you can confirm by freepost, freephone, text message or on-line.
You can now register to receive information by text message on your phone regarding appointments and health care. If you wish to register for this messaging service please fill out the consent form.
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.
