Dr Reay to retire on 31st May... 

After over 30 years working at West Ayton and Snainton surgeries it is time for me to retire. I joined the practice on completion of my GP training in York and feel lucky to have lived and worked in such a beautiful area and worked with a supportive team dedicated to delivering high quality healthcare to our patients over all these years.

I am also grateful for the support of the community and patients, many of whom I have got to know as individuals as well as patients. Their frequent appreciative words and acts of kindness have meant a lot to me in what is not always an easy job. I have greatly valued the continuity of care that we have strived to achieve and am pleased that the practice continues to recognise its importance.

We have some excellent new recruits at the practice (doctors, nurses and support staff) to add to those who, like me, have been there many years. I know that I am leaving the practice in capable hands.

I am sad that the Covid pandemic has so disrupted our way of working that I will not see many patients in person before I go. You will be in my thoughts and there will be better times ahead.

Once I am gone, patients used to asking for me should, in preference, ask for Dr Cahir Doherty or Dr Simon Arch. Cahir and Simon joined the practice as final year trainees in 2019 and we were so impressed with them that we persuaded them to continue working with us when they completed their training last year. They both live in the area and we hope will be part of the practice for many years to come.

When We Are Closed

If it is an emergency ring 999, if not please ring 111. You should use the NHS 111 service if you urgently need medical help or advice but it's not a life-threatening situation.

NHS 111

NHS 111 is a new telephone service for people in Yorkshire and the Humber to call if they need medical help fast but are not in a life-threatening situation.

The easy-to-remember, free-to-call number is being introduced across England to help reduce the pressure on A&E departments and the 999 service. Available 24 hours a day, 365 days a week, the service is for people who aren’t sure if they need to go to A&E, don’t have a GP to call or generally need reassurance and advice.

On dialing 111 a team of fully-trained advisers and experienced nurses will assess your condition and direct you to the local service that can help you best, when you need it. There are now only three numbers you need to know: your GP surgery, 111 for urgent healthcare advice and 999 for life-threatening emergencies. For more information on 111 visit www.nhs.uk/111.
