COVID-19 information

High COVID-19 numbers continue to significantly impact our healthcare services. 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 restrictions

To help us better manage infection control risks, visitor restrictions remain in place:

Eastern services visitior restrictions

Northern services visitor restrictions

Please wear a facemask

One of the best ways to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is to wear a facemask. That is why across all of our healthcare settings, facemasks must be worn unless medically exempt. This includes our acute hospital, community sites and hospitals, and our vaccination centres.

If you are deaf or hearing impaired, our staff have a range of communication options to ensure that they can communicate effectively with you. This might include visual aids such as writing things down, speech to text apps and sign language.

We understand that for some people, wearing a face-covering may be difficult due to physical or mental health conditions, and these people will remain exempt.

Vaccination Centres

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

Exeter COVID-19 Vaccination Centre - Greendale Business Park

North Devon COVID-19 Vaccination Centre - Barnstaple - Tesco Taw View Extra
