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.

Patient Participation Group

Patient Participation Group (PPG)

The Patient Participation Group was first formed in 2012/2013 and is made up of 9 patient representatives who meet approximately every 8 weeks with the Practice Manager and an Administrator to discuss any issues affecting patient care and assist in providing a good service to our patients. The Patient Participation Group represents the views of the patient body and provides feedback on their needs and concerns.

If you have anything you would like the group to discuss please click here for the contact details of our members who would be happy to help.

The Group’s Mission

The Group’s Mission is to support the continuous improvement of services delivered by Ayton and Snainton Medical Practice by finding ways of making a positive contribution to the delivery and development of local health care services.

Health Information Days

In July 2015 the group joined forces with Derwent Valley Bridge Community Library and Resource Centre to run Health information Days. Since 2015 the group has organised four health information days, two of which were held during the summer months and were called “Keep Well – Stay Well” and the other two during winter months called “Keep Well for Winter” and “Self-Care Health Care”.

The aim of the health days was to:

  • Let the people attending get a quick health check from the practice nurse team.
  • Have a chance to chat with a range of organisations that could help them manage their health.
  • Learn new ways of keeping well through healthy eating and cookery demonstrations
  • Attend talks about a range of organisations that can help people to keep well and manage their health conditions or the conditions of those close to them.

 

If you interested in joining the group please contact Pam Saltmer or Adele Robinson on 01723 863100.

Many thanks for your assistance
