COVID-19 vaccination appointments moving from Barnstaple Leisure Centre to Tesco Extra car park from Monday 9 May

The vaccination centre at Barnstaple Leisure Centre is moving from its current site to a purpose-built mobile centre in the car park of the Barnstaple Tesco Extra from Monday 9 May 2022.

The new centre is just across the road from its current site and will provide vaccines to those with appointments. Walk-in slots will also continue to be available from the new site.

Anyone with a booked appointment at Barnstaple Leisure Centre for Monday 9 May or afterwards should go to the new centre, which will be in the Tesco Extra car park in Barnstaple. You will receive a communication from the NHS to confirm this.

Everyone with appointments up to and including Sunday 8 May should attend the Barnstaple Leisure Centre, as well as people wishing to walk in for their vaccination up to this date.

We are an Armed Forces veteran friendly accredited GP practice.

This means that, as part of the health commitments of the Armed Forces Covenant, we have a dedicated clinician who has a specialist knowledge of military related health conditions and veteran specific health services. This is important in helping ex-forces to get the best care and treatment.

If you are ex-forces, please let your GP know to help ensure you are getting the best possible care.

At Bideford Medical Centre we get thank yous, compliments and praise from many many patients which we really appreciate. However patients are not always kind to our staff and this YouTube video gives an idea of some of the things that are said to them....and yes some of this does happen in North Devon and at Bideford Medical Centre.
Please treat our staff with respect they have a difficult job and are here to help you.
