Extended access to primary care
MORE APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE NOW
There are now more primary care appointments available making it easier for you to get an appointment at a time that suits you in the evenings and at weekends.
The Extended Access Service is an extension of your usual primary care practice. It is not a walk-in service – you need to make an appointment.
The Extended Access Service is located at Mowbray Square in Harrogate and North House in Ripon. You can get appointments up to 8pm weekdays and on Saturday and Sunday mornings.
Information about the new service is available here or contact reception.

It is a requirement of all practices in England to allocate every patient with a named GP. If you would like to know who is your named GP please ask at reception. If you would like to change this to a specific GP then please inform reception who will make this change for you.
Friends and Family Test
With effect from 1 December 2014, when you visit our surgeries, you will have the opportunity to take part in the Family & Friends Test by answering a simple question about your experience. Your response is anonymous and you will be able to post this in a ballot box in reception. Alternatively you will be able to complete the survey by clicking on the link under 'Have your say' to the right of the screen.
We will review your responses each month and provide feedback.
Meningitis B Vaccine
Unfortunately, it has been widely reported, there is a national shortage of the vaccinateion Bexsero (against Men B) and as such we are unable to obtain a private supply. We would, therefore, recommend that parents wishing to vaccinate privately keep in touch with the larger private clinics who will most likely be the first to obtain stock when it becomes available.
This supply issue does not affect our younger patients currently being or due to be vaccinated against Men B as part of the NHS Vaccination programme.
