There are 7 Hospitals in Exeter. Hospital services fall under secondary care and, with the exception of emergency care, you will need a referral to access treatment. Hospitals themselves are mostly managed by NHS trusts, which ensures high-quality care is provided and that money is spent effeciently. Services and treatments like accident and emergency services, family planning services and treatment for most infectious diseases are free to all in NHS Hospitals. If you are referred for your first outpatient appointment then, you have the right to choose which hospital in England to go to. You are also able to choose which consultant-led will be incharge of your treatment, as long as the team provides the treatment you require.

What are GPs? : GP stands for 'General Practitioner' who can deal with all type of medical conditions and mainly treats acute (short duration) and chronic (diseases that lasts for more than three months) illnesses. GPs provide routine health care checkups like physical examinations, vaccinations, simple surgical operations etc. They also provide advice on diet and smoking, preventive care and health education to patients.
GPs are not specialized in any one particular area. So, if they can't deal with any particular medical condition, they refer the patient to the specialized hospital for tests, treatment, or to see a consultant with specialist knowledge.

What is a GP Practice? : GPs usually work in practices (a physical location / clinic) as part of a team that includes nurses, healthcare assistants, practice managers, receptionists and other staff. Practices also work closely with other healthcare professionals, such as health visitors, midwives, mental health services and social care services. GP practices should make information about their services easily available to their patients. Our website also provide detailed information about General Practices which is easy to comprehend and freely accessible.
