Information about the flu vaccination and who is eligible for the vaccination this year can be found on the NHS website here.
The priority this year is to vaccinate those who are at most risk from flu first, including people of all ages who have a health condition that makes them more at risk from flu. People aged 50-64 without a health condition that puts them at risk will be offered the vaccine later on and should wait to be invited for vaccination.
We are asking patients to wear a face covering when visiting the surgery as the recommended 2 metres social distancing may not be able to be maintained either during a consultation, while waiting for an appointment or when collecting a prescription. Please click here for more information.
We have introduced an online consultation service so you don’t always need to come into the Practice to get our medical expertise. You can input your symptoms online and will receive a response from the Practice, generally by telephone, usually by the end of the next working day at the very latest. You will also have access to reliable and trustworthy self-help generic information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that may help you to avoid an appointment altogether.

Working with Other Practices During Coronavirus
We have been working hard with other GP Practices to redesign how we provide Primary Care Services to our patients as we work through the Covid-19 outbreak. We are putting in place a new approach and you may see changes if you access services from Ampleforth & Hovingham Surgeries during this time. This approach will enable us to make sure that we continue to provide the services patients need in the days, weeks and months ahead. Our approach sees us working with other GP Practices in a new way by 'clustering together' to form a network to provide services over multiple sites. This means you may receive services somewhere other than at Ampleforth & Hovingham Surgeries and may see someone other than your usual GP or Nurse.
Extended Access Service
Ampleforth & Hovingham Surgeries work alongside other GP Practices in Ryedale to provide services 7 days per week. Click here for more information about booking appointments.
