Please call the relevant surgery to make appointments with our GPs, Nurse Practitioner (Whitby only) or Nursing Team.
All GP appointments are for 10 minutes. If your issue is complex or there is more than one matter you’d like to discuss, please ask to book a double appointment.
When attending for a pre-booked appointment please use the automated arrivals kiosk to check in (please ask staff to show you if you need any help) or report to the reception desk on arrival.
Please consider registering for Patient Access – this service allows you to book your own appointments securely online. Further details here can be found on our PCN website or please speak to the reception team who will be happy to get this set up for you.
Please report any difficulty with making appointments at our practice either to your GP or our Practice Manager. We rely on your comments to optimise our service to you.
