We are changing the way we invite patients for their annual review for long term conditions to birthday month.
If you have a long-term condition such as Asthma / Diabetes / Hypertension etc, you will receive an invitation to book your annual review either by text or letter just before your birth month. We appreciate that initially this may result in you being called in sooner or later than you were expecting. As a result of moving to birth month recalls, patients will have to attend fewer appointments as multiple tests ands checks can be performed at the same time.
If you have any concerns about your conditions before or after your annual review, please contact the surgery
Dr Rhonwen Bramley
After 20 happy years in the practice, Dr Rhonwen Bramley has made the decision to retire from General Practice. We are all very sad to see her leave and wish her all the very best.
Prescribing Changes for over the counter medicines
GPs in North Yorkshire will no longer prescribe medicines that can bought over-the-counter from your pharmacy or supermarket for minor, short-term health concerns like coughs and colds. By visiting your local pharmacy instead, you can save yourself time and help to free up GP appointments for those most in need. Find out more at www.prescriptionchanges.co.uk
We're still offering routine childhood vaccinations. It's really important to ensure your children are kept up to date with their immunisations to help prevent them from becoming unwell with serious illnesses.
Appointments and waiting procedures may be different from normal. If you're coming to the surgery, please ensure that only you and your child attend the appointment.
