Our hospitals are extremely busy – please help us to help you
Please do not visit any of our sites if you have symptoms of diarrhoea, vomiting, COVID-19 or cold or flu-like illness.
If you have a planned appointment and have symptoms of a virus, please call the number at the top of your letter to postpone your appointment.
If you do need to use our services or visit a loved one, please follow the infection prevention and control guidance in place at our hospitals. This includes washing hands or using hand gel on arrival (and on leaving) to the area you are visiting, wearing a face covering in certain areas, and following our visiting restrictions.

Choosing the right service when you are unwell or injured helps you to get the care you need as soon as possible.
It also reduces pressure on emergency services, freeing them up to help those who need it most.
It’s normal to feel anxious about a hospital procedure. Your appointment may have been delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and this may be causing additional worry for you and your loved ones.
Healthcare providers across Devon are working together to update MyHealth and add more useful information to support and help you whilst you wait.
Local people and patients can all become members of the Royal Devon.
