A Short History

Although it is recorded that in 1851 there were six doctors and surgeons resident in Pocklington, for most of the last century there were five in two practices. In 1965 Dr Fairweather and Dr Moll had a surgery on West Green and Drs Isherwood, Jones and Laing in Regent Street. In 1970 the Health Centre opened and the following year the two practices joined forces to become the Pocklington Group Practice. By 1987 the growth in population and services offered necessitated the move to the previous premises larger premises which were wholly owned by the partners. Fund holding saw the purchase of further premises, the Bungalow Annex, which housed two further consulting rooms and was used for additional services such as Outreach clinics from York District Hospital, midwife clinics and as an out of hours, Primary Care Centre.  Since 2015 the practice has been here at the Beckside Centre, a purpose built Practice wholly owned by the Partners. The number of doctors has grown to 12, with 2 nurse practitioners,4 practice nurses, 3 HCAs, a pharmacist plus a number of ARRS personnel including pharmacists, FCP Physio, FCP MH Nurse, social prescriber, Nurse Associate trainee and care coordinators. The team supports our circa 18500 patient population which continues to grow.
