Staff Training Surgery Closure
The Practice is supported by North Yorkshire Clinical Commissioning Group to provide and facilitate important training and learning events for practice staff to help them keep up to date with relevant information to carry out their job and continue to deliver the services at the Practice. The next training date is Tuesday 15th July from 12:30 - 6:30 pm.
When the surgery is closed during these events, there will be an Out of Hours Service running which patients can access by ringing 0300 123 0762. In an emergency please call 999 as normal.
The training dates will be displayed in the surgery premises, on the main entrance door, main reception areas and on the Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group website. Please remember to collect repeat prescriptions outside of these times.
Covid-19 Vaccination Update 19th May 2021
In the light of the government announcement about shortening the time between first and second doses of the Covid-19 vaccination for those aged 50 and over and others in cohorts 1 – 9 of the JCVI priority list, we are awaiting information on vaccine supply in order to plan clinics and we will be contacting you by text message or telephone to book an appointment date and time as soon as we have this information. Second doses are effective when administered anytime between 3 and 12 weeks after the first so don't worry if your second dose appointment is scheduled beyond 8 weeks. This will not affect the protection provided by your vaccination.
Proof of your vaccination status will be available on the NHS App from May 17th 2021, and you will not need access to your Detailed Coded Record in order to view your vaccinations on the NHS App after this date. Please note that we are unable to issue vaccination status certificates at the practice.
The NHS App can be downloaded from https://apps.apple.com/gb/app/nhs-app/id1388411277 for iPhone or https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.nhs.online.nhsonline for android. Alternatively you can call the NHS helpline on 119 from 17th May and ask for a letter to be posted to you. This must be at least 5 days after you’ve completed your course of the vaccine, and the letter may to take up to 5 days to reach you. Please see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/demonstrating-your-covid-19-vaccination-status-when-travelling-abroad for further information about travelling abroad.

Please note that while our Saturday vaccination clinics are running, the dispensary will not be open. This is so that we can ensure flow through the surgery, taking account of social distancing requirements and patient safety.
Please continue to use the NHS website here for up to date information about Covid-19, and there is further help for patients who are recovering from Covid-19 here.
