Always call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
If you have to contact the Out of Hours service through Devon Docs, Kernow Health or NHS 111 and you are advised to be seen at a treatment centre you may have a choice where you are seen. Please ask for your options at the time. Please note that Bideford Hospital Minor Injuries Unit (MIU) is no longer open (July 2021).
