Coronavirus Covid-19 Advice

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back
  • a new, continuous cough – this means you’ve started coughing repeatedly
  • Loss of/change in smell or taste.

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you’re staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you’re staying at home.

How long to stay at home

  • if you have symptoms, stay at home for 7 days
  • if you live with other people, they should stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person got symptoms

If you live with someone who is 70 or over, has a long-term condition, is pregnant or has a weakened immune system, try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.

If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.

Urgent advice: Use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service if:

  • you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
  • your condition gets worse
  • your symptoms do not get better after 7 days

Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.

Welcome to Castle Gardens Surgery

Castle Gardens Surgery is semi-rural, serving patients from Torrington and surrounding villages covering an area of approximately 100 square miles. Our team includes GPs, practice nurses, and health care assistants as well as our practice administrative support teams. The practice is also dispensing for all patients living 1 mile or more from the local chemist (50% of list size) and is run by our dispensing team.

We work closely with our community care team to look after the old and terminally ill and patients can be referred for day treatments  at the cottage hospital where there are on site physiotherapists and OTs as well as visiting chiropodists. North Devon District Hospital is our closest secondary referral centre in Barnstaple. It has all the usual specialities, but we also regularly refer to Exeter, Plymouth and Bristol.

We are responsible for advising patients on leading a healthy lifestyle as well as caring for the sick.

We aim to treat all our patients promptly, courteously and in complete confidence.

We hope that our website provides clear and concise help and gives our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us. The website also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription, book or cancel appointments.


Parking is available next to the Surgery.  There is level access for wheelchairs and prams and automatic doors.  There is a disabled W.C. which also has a nappy changing area.
