STAXTON SURGERY AND PRESCRIPTION COLLECTION UPDATE 


We have noted the uptake for the Staxton clinic appointments has declined and we have thought about how we could serve our patients better. We noticed an increased demand for urgent appointments for problems that could be treated excellently by a nurse practitioner.


 From 4th September our new nurse practitioner, Theresa, will start and will be available 3 days per week, offering 'immediate' (same day) appointments.


We feel the appointments are best offered in the Sherburn and Rillington practice premises as they are much better equipped than the Staxton Village Hall. We are therefore finishing the Staxton Village Hall clinics from July 2017, meaning the last clinic will be held on Tuesday 27th June.


 The current prescription service which currently runs from Pat Pickard’s home in Staxton will cease from Wednesday 28th June – any prescriptions not collected from Pats after this date will be returned to the Practice for collection. As an alternative the practice does offer a prescription delivery service for all our patients, this will continue where needed to deliver prescriptions to patient's houses by our delivery driver. This requires you to be at home to sign for the prescription on the delivery day. We offer this service on a Tuesday and Thursday mornings and Wednesday evenings


Please ask at dispensary for further information and to be added to the delivery service.


We trust we will improve our service to our patients this way.


We would like thank Pat Pickard for all those years that she has assisted us out of the goodness of her heart with the Staxton clinics and prescription collection service.


 

When We Are Closedclosed_sign

When our GP Practice is closed

If you require urgent medical assistance which cannot wait until the surgery re-opens please call 1-1-1.  A trained advisor will direct you to the most appropriate health service or treatment for your needs close to where you are.  If they feel you need urgent health care, they can make you an appointment at one of the urgent care centres in Scarborough or Malton.

Urgent Care Centres

The urgent care centre in Scarborough is open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.  To ensure you are seen as quickly as possible, please book an appointment by calling 1-1-1.

The urgent care centre in Malton is open from 9am to 8pm, 365 days a year for patients attending without a pre-booked appointment via 111.  Outside these times, you can still call 1-1-1 to arrange for someone at the Centre to see you during the night.

Emergency Department

In a genuine medical emergency you should call 999, for example if you are having difficulty breathing, suffering from chest pains or have had a serious accident.  The nearest emergency departments are located at Scarborough hospital and York hospital.

Choose the right care, first time with the online guide to NHS services or download the leaflet.
