Bookable Appointments via Patient Access

Pocklington Group practice has suspended the ability for patients to book appointments online this is to help improve our appointment service and ensure that every patient is navigated to the most appropriate clinician. Instead, if you telephone the practice or complete an online consultation form, you will be provided with the most appropriate clinician or contacted to book an appointment. Unfortunately we have had a number of appointments booked inappropriately.


Face Coverings 

Face coverings are now optional inside the practice, unless you have Covid symptoms or are suffering from a recent respiratory illness
