'On the day' appointments

For those patients who are unable to wait for bookable appointments, we hold an open walk in surgery every morning Monday to Friday. These surgeries are for acute problems that need prompt GP attention.
For an 'on the day' walk in appointment, come to the surgery between 8:15-11:00am. There is no need to ring in advance. You will be seen by the next available doctor. Reception will let you know which GP you will see, and the estimated time of the appointment.
Once these walk in appointments are full (which could occur before 11:00am) the receptionist will ask you if you need to be seen urgently that day.  If you do, you will then be put in an Urgent Care Clinic, where you will be seen in turn by the first available GP.
Better Access appointments (evening & Saturday)
More routine primary care appointments have been made available to people living in our region. Patients registered at GP practices in Hambleton, Richmondshire and Whitby can pre-book a routine primary care appointment between 6:30pm and 8:00pm weekdays and between 8:30am and 12 noon on Saturdays. This is not a walk-in service and may not be at your usual practice – please speak to a receptionist to book your appointment.
Booking an appointment with a named GP
If you would like to see your own doctor, you will usually be able to do so by booking an afternoon appointment in advance.
Appointment length

All GP appointments are for 10 minutes.  If your issue is complex or there is more than one matter you’d like to discuss, please ask to book a double appointment.
