Okehampton Medical Centre

East St, Okehampton EX20 1AY, UK – 01837 52233

An excellent medical centre. Somehow (despite worsening funding pressures and an increasing population combined with an excessive number of over-entitled individuals within the population who expect an expensive private service without paying a penny in either medical fees or taxes) the practice has somehow managed to adapt and to cope and continue to offer safe care. To any who feel aggrieved by the medical centre, why not register at a different practice and see whether your issues have any genuine value (you will certainly find identical problems at every medical centre) or even write to your MP to try and create the political changes which are required for a better service to be offered.

All good, friendly & helpful, but they cannot hide that their primary goal is to extract every last penny possible from each customer. It takes a lot of work to get what you want over what they want you to want.

Great experience, staff are very friendly and approachable. Do not have to sit around and wait either.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.
