Welcome to Ampleforth & Hovingham Surgeries
From Monday 15th June we are asking patients to wear a face covering if they have a face to face appointment with a nurse or GP because the recommended 2 metres social distancing cannot be observed during in a consultation. 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.

Information for Patients who are Shielding
The UK Government has set out a roadmap for the clinically extremely vulnerable on the future of the shielding programme. For now, the guidance remains the same - stay at home and only go outside to exercise or to spend time outdoors with a member of your household, or with one other person from another household if you live alone - but the guidance will change on 6th July and again on 1st August. Please click here for more detailed information.
Please allow a minimum of 5 working days to order your medication. We are experiencing delays in medication stock delivery from our wholesalers.

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.
