Surgery Building Project
Please follow the link here or click on the Surgery Building Project page on the right for details of the major building project which is about to start at Ampleforth Surgery, along with answers to some frequently asked questions.
We will keep the website updated with news and progress about the build.
Medication Ordering and Collection
The dispensary will be based at our Hovingham Surgery during the build, although prescriptions can be collected from both St Benedict's House in Ampleforth and Hovingham Surgery. We ask patients to give the surgery 3 working days’ notice when ordering their repeat medications during this time.
Seasonal Flu Vaccinations
Seasonal flu vaccinations are still available for eligible patients. Information about who is eligible for the flu vaccination this year can be found on the NHS Choices Website.
If you have an appointment at the surgery, please ask to have the flu vaccination at the same time. If you do not want the flu vaccination this year, please let the surgery know so that we can add this to your medical record.
Staff Training Surgery Closure
Ampleforth and Hovingham Surgeries will be closed on Thursday 17th May 2018 from 1pm for staff training.
For more information about the staff training and arrangements during the surgery closure, please see our Latest News.
Fundraising and Donations
Books and DVDs are on sale at Hovingham Surgery and at St Benedict's House, Ampleforth. Books and DVDs cost £1 each and all proceeds will go towards new medical equipment for the surgery. If you wish to donate any books or DVDs please drop them it at reception.
Thank you for all your kind donations and purchases. We have so far raised a total of £889.76 from the sale of books and DVDs. We have also received a total of £1,372 from individual patient donations. Donations will be used to purchase medical equipment for the surgery.

Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give 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.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Ampleforth Surgery has ramp access from the car park at the front of the surgery. A handrail is also being installed to make it easier to access the surgery. Hovingham Surgery offers parking right outside the door on a flat surface which you may find easier.
If you require assistance please ring before visiting the surgery and we will be waiting to help.
