Welcome to Queens Medical Centre
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us. You can find a copy of our practice leaflet here: QMC Practice Leaflet.
Message for patients
With the forecast of a red alert for snow and freezing temperatures from mid afternoon Thursday 1st March 2018, we will try to remain open and provide a service however, some of our staff may not be able to get in and we may have to cancel appointments. We apologise in advance if this is the case.
“If you need to see or speak with a GP or someone else at the practice, you should contact your practice directly, or for urgent advice call NHS 111.
“Not all GP practices in Devon, Plymouth or Torbay are offering the 8am-8pm service this winter as recent patient satisfaction feedback on GP opening times suggests this isn’t needed for our area at this time. In line with national policy this will be reviewed in the new year.
“As there are variations in GP practice opening times and practices aren’t open their usual hours, be prepared this Christmas. Ensure you order your prescription medication in good time, keep your medicines cabinet well stocked with medicines that you can buy over the counter, ask your pharmacist for advice, or call 111.
“Existing out-of-hours arrangements for GPs continue as normal as normal every evening, overnight, over the weekends and bank holidays. These are accessed by calling 111. 111 is available for everyone whether registered with a GP practice or not.”
Comments from Patients
"Thank you for your help today, 30/3/16, especially the very helpful receptionist and GP who called me (sorry, can't remember the name). I'm very grateful for the assistance you gave me when I was away from home and unable to see my own GP."
“Thank you all for looking after me so well!”
“Thank you for your friendly, kind and encouraging approach – it was worth moving back to Barnstaple to have such good care and services again!!”
“I am eternally grateful for your support a few years ago, given professionally and with such warmth and care."
"I have been coming in since August for an ongoing problem and the treatment I have received At Queens Medical Centre has been excellent! The receptionists do a thankless job and I think they are all wonderful, not a lot of people appreciate what they do."
