Online Consultations

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.

Yorkshire & Humber Care Record

At the moment, every health and social care organisation that you use has a different set of patient or service user records for you. These records may duplicate information or one record might hold information about your treatment, care and support that another one doesn’t. To provide the best care to you as a patient or service user it is essential that health and social care professionals have access to the most up-to-date information.  The NEW Yorkshire & Humber Care Record is a secure virtual health and social care record. It pulls key information from different health and social care records and stores it in one combined record. This enables health and social care professionals to find all the key information for your care in one place.

Please click here for more detailed information about the NEW Yorkshire & Humber Care Record or pick up a leaflet from the surgery.
