We will be closed for the August Bank Holiday on Monday 26th. If you have any urgent medical problems please contact NHS111 or in cases of emergencies please dial 999.
On Tuesday 24th September the Doctors and Nurses will be involved in a training session between 13.00 and 16.00 so will not be running our Same Day Care Service in the usual way. If your problem is urgent and you need to see a clinician the same day then the receptionist will ask you to attend a sit and wait surgery at 16.30. The receptionist will also ask you for an indication of the problem so that the appointment can be prioritised. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our patients in supporting the training and development of the Practice team.
All Vale of York Practices are closed from mid-day until 6.00pm on Tuesday 15th October for a training and learning event. For emergencies please call the emergency Doctors service on 0300 123 0762. For routine and non-urgent enquiries, please call the Practice on Wednesday morning when services will be open as usual.
How you order a repeat prescription is changing. From the 1 September 2019 you will need to order your repeat prescription directly from the surgery. You can do this in the following ways: Order online via your GP surgery website, download the NHS App on your mobile phone or tablet device, tick the items you need on the white, tear-off section of your prescription and give to your surgery or post the repeat prescription to your GP practice. For further information please talk to surgery staff or your local pharmacy. Alternatively go to www.valeofyorkccg.nhs.uk
If you're a patient at our practice you can now use the new NHS App, a simple and secure way to access a range of NHS services on your smartphone or tablet. You can use the NHS App to check your symptoms and get instant advice, book appointments, order repeat prescriptions, view your GP medical record and more. If you already use SystmOnline you can continue to use it. You can use the NHS App as well. For more information go to www.nhs.uk/nhsapp .
Have you consented to additional information being added to your Summary Care Record? Adding information to your Summary Care Record will help healthcare staff make better and safer decisions about how best to treat you, especially when you need unplanned care or if your GP practice is closed. Ask at reception for more information and a consent form or visit https://digital.nhs.uk/services/summary-care-records-scr/additional-information-in-scr .
