Local Hospitals

Tavistock Hospital and Okehampton Hospital are Community Hospitals where services are limited.  Derriford Hospital is the main NHS Hospital in the area.  Nuffield Health in Plymouth is our nearest Private Hospital.

Both Tavistock and Okehampton have Minor Injuries Units (MIU).  These are designed to treat less serious injuries such as sprains, cuts and grazes.  You do not need an appointment to attend the MIU. If staff feel that your injury is too serious to be treated within their department you will be referred on as appropriate.


Tavistock Hospital

Tavistock Hospital has inpatient beds, a minor injuries unit (MIU), an operating theatre, an outpatient department and an x-ray department.
