Our staff are working incredibly hard and doing everything they can to prevent COVID-19 from spreading across our healthcare settings, but we need your help:

If you have an outpatient appointment

If you or a member of your household has tested positive for COVID-19, please contact us via the details on the top of your appointment letter, as soon as possible before your appointment. Please do not attend until you have had a conversation with one of our clinical team.

If you need urgent care and you have COVID-19

If you need urgent or emergency care and you have COVID-19, please call NHS 111 first to check where the best place for you to receive care is. If you are signposted to an RD&E service, please let the reception desk know you are COVID positive as soon as you arrive.

Visitor guidance

To help us better manage infection control risks, please ensure you are aware of visitor guidance at our hospitals:

Eastern services visitor guidance

Wearing of facemasks or coverings

Across all of our sites in Eastern and Northern Devon, visitors are no longer required to wear a facemask or covering in almost all areas, where wearing one is a matter of personal choice. However, visitors will still need to wear a facemask or covering in areas with extremely vulnerable patients, unless medically exempt. These areas are identified by clear signage, but if in doubt, please ask a member of staff.

Vaccination Centres

Our vaccination centres are currently open on specific days and times for appointments and walk-ins.
