The Doctors’ Surgery is operating as a hub in the Thirsk area to provide extended alternate Saturday mornings from 08:30-12:00 in partnership with the Heartbeat Alliance, through their Better Access programme.
These telephone appointments provide access to GPs, ANPs, a Physiotherapist and a Clinical Pharmacist for minor illness and medication reviews.
We also have face to face appointments to see Kelly the Practice Nurse and one of HCA for blood tests.
The clinics are available to patients from all practices in the local area, not just those registered with this practice.
Saturdays we are open:
If you have an urgent medical problem when our surgery is closed please call NHS 111 by dialling 111.
If appropriate you will be transferred to the Out of Hours Emergency Service which is manned by a team of local doctors and operates from Northallerton between the hours of 18:30 – 08:00 on week days and all day Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays.
If your problem is not deemed to be sufficiently urgent for the Out of Hours Emergency Service, you will be advised of the most appropriate alternative service ad how to contact that service.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
111 online is a fast and convenient alternative to the 111 phone service and provides an option for people who want to access 111 digitally.
Your needs will be assessed and you will be given advice about whether you need:
If you need face to face medical attention you may be asked to attend a Primary Care Centre.
