Where to find us

Your healthcare professional will advise where your appointment will take place. Your appointment may take place at one of our outpatient clinics situated within our main hospital sites or within the community.

Depending on which specialty you need, we run multiple routine, new, and follow-up clinics at RD&E Wonford and North Devon District Hospital. Any patients requiring overnight admission for treatment will have their surgical treatment carried out at the RD&E Hospital in Exeter. 

We arrange some follow-up clinics at Tiverton Hospital, Axminster Hospital and North Devon District Hospital.

For dental-alveolar and oral surgery, we also have services at the RD&E Heavitree, Gladstone Rd, Exeter EX1 2ED.
