KEEP WELL FOR WINTER - Community Information Event for AllClick here to see the poster
Winter is approaching and we all want to keep fit and well. To help you to do that why not come along to the “Keep Well for Winter” event that is taking place in Seamer Memorial Hall on Wednesday the 15th November from 10am – 3pm ? This event is being organised by The Patient Participation Group for Ayton and Snainton Medical Practice in conjunction with Derwent Valley Bridge Community Library and Resource Centre.  The event is open to all. For more information contact Pam Saltmer or Adele Robinson on 01723863100.

Protected Time for Learning - The practice will be closed from 12.30 p.m. on Tuesday 14th November 2017.

 

The Practice is supported by NHS Scarborough and Ryedale Clinical Commissioning Group to provide and facilitate important training and learning events for GPs and practice staff to help them keep up to date with relevant information and continue to deliver the services at the practice.

 

When the practice is closed, there will be an On-Call GP service running.  In cases of medically urgent problems, please phone the practice for instructions on how to contact the On-Call GP service.  Thank you. 

Dispensing

If you live more than a mile from a chemist you will (unless you specifically ask not to be) be registered as a dispensing patient. This means that our dispensary can supply you with prescription medicines, rather than having to take a written prescription to the chemist to be dispensed.

If you live less than a mile from a chemist (e.g. in Thornton-le-Dale, Ayton or most of Crossgates) you will be given a written prescription to be dispensed by a chemist. In certain special circumstances (e.g. if you are housebound and have difficulty getting to a chemist) you can apply to NHS England to become a dispensing patient.

Our dispensaries cannot sell you items that you would normally buy across the counter at a chemist. However if you are eligible for free prescriptions and the item is also available on prescription (e.g. paracetamol for children) you may ask us to supply it.

All dispensing patients may ask for a written prescription to be taken to the chemist if they wish. This may be advisable, for example, if (though it rarely happens) we are out of stock of an item that you need urgently.
