We are delighted to inform you that telephone appointments may now be booked online through the Patient Access website. If you have not yet registered for this service, please speak with one of our reception team.
Please note that the charge for NHS prescriptions increased to £8.80 per item as of 01 April 2018.
There was no change to the Prescription Prepayment Certificates (PPC) charges.

We are delighted to be able to offer FREE NHS health checks to those people aged between 40 and 74 without a pre-existing medical condition.
These FREE checks are available every 5 years and will help you learn about your risk of developing common but preventable health conditions, how your lifestyle can influence your risk and provide support to live a healthier lifestyle.
For further information or to book an appointment please contact our reception team on 01759 302500.
Patients registered for Patient Access can now see all lab results, consultations and documents. If you are not registered yet for Patient Access, please press the green ‘Register Now’ button on our home page, which will take you to the correct site to progress your registration. You will then be able to use it for one appointment. For full access, you must bring proof of ID (photographic and home address) into the surgery and see one of our Reception team.
Please ensure that we have the correct contact details for you on record, including your mobile telephone number, if applicable. This is because we can now offer a text reminder service for appointments.
Anyone requesting travel information by either telephone, email or online, should follow their original request up one week later with a telephone call to the surgery. This allows the nursing team time to investigate the requirements for the area being travelled to.
Further to recent media reports regarding the MenACWY vaccination, all adolescents – 17/18 year olds – born between 01 September 1997 and 31 August 1998 in England and freshers born between 01 April 1991 and 31 August 1997 are eligible for vaccination.
The vaccine will be available for all adolescents in this eligible group regardless of their intention to continue into further education. However, the target primarily is those who have plans to go to university for the first time this year and it is important they are vaccinated before they leave home.
Pocklington Group Practice sent out letters earlier in the year to all adolescents eligible inviting them for vaccination. There is also a ‘catch up’ availability of the vaccine for those who were school leaving age in summer 2015, born between 01 September 1996 and 31 August 1997, but who did not receive vaccination during 2015/16.
To make an appointment please telephone 01759 302500.
