We are a friendly and welcoming GP practice located in the historic market town of Ottery St Mary. We look after approximately 16,000 patients who live in Ottery and the surrounding villages. 

We are open Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays).  You can speak to a Patient Services Adviser on the telephone between 0830 to 1330 and 1400 to 1800.  For face to face enquiries you can call in between 0800 and 1830.   

If you telephone us between 0800-0830, 1330-1400 and 1800-1830 you will be asked to call again when our lines are open.  If you call is because you have an urgent medical need you will be asked to stay on the line while you are transferred to the Out of Hours service.  All calls to this service are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.
