In line with NHS initiatives to extend GP hours of service, we offer a limited number of routine appointments on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings.  The purpose of these appointments is for patients who have genuine difficulty leaving work during the week to have more opportunity to see a doctor routinely in a standard 10 minute consultation.  Please note that appointments for insurance/employment/lighter life medicals etc are not available during these times.  Please see the “appointments” section for further details.  Patients will need to pre-book these appointments in advance.

In order to meet the aims of these extra surgeries, patients requiring urgent appointments or home visits will still be required to contact the out of hours’ service by telephoning 111.   (Please see our Out of Hours page for further information on the new NHS 111 out of hours service.)

As the funding available to provide these surgeries is limited, there will be no Nurse led clinics available on Saturdays.

Please note that if non-repeat medicines are required urgently out of hours, then the Out of Hours service should be contacted on 111.

Please be aware that on Wednesday 19th Oct the dispensary will be closed for staff training,

between 1200-1600.

During this time we will not be able to dispense prescriptions.


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


Travel Information

Patients are advised that we do not provide travel advice. We do administer the following vaccines if required: Tetanus, Typhoid and Hepatitis A.
