Surgery Extension Update
The surgery extension work is currently on hold. We have received quotations from builders and the figures quoted are massively over budget. We are working with the architects to assess where savings can be made and although we are in the early stages of this, we are still looking at a shortfall of around £50,000. We are also looking at alternative means of fundraising so please get in touch with the surgery if you are able to help with this.
Seasonal Flu Vaccinations
Vaccinations are still available for patients aged 18 and over who are eligible to receive the seasonal flu vaccination. Vaccinations for patients under 18 have now expired and no further vaccinations are available to order. More information about the flu vaccination and who is eligible can be found on the NHS Choices website.
Please telephone the surgery on 01439 788215 or 01653 628203 to book an appointment. If you decide not to have the vaccination this year, please let us know so that we can enter this on your medical records.
The next Patient Forum Meeting will be held on Monday 16th January 2017 at 6:30 pm at Hovingham 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.
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.
