Welcome to The York Medical Practice

Important information about blood tests

A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests.

Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems, will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled.

Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available.

If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.

Important information about Flu Vaccines 

You may be aware from reading national press that there is a delay in flu vaccines reaching us because of freight issues. Unfortunately, The York Medical Practice has been affected by this delay. We are awaiting an update within the next week or so. As soon as we have confirmation of our delivery date we will start contacting patients to book appointments.

Appointments at The York Medical Practice

At The York Medical Practice we want to allow you the freedom to choose between face to face and telephone appointments with your clinician. However, due to the rising cases of COVID-19 we urge you to preferentially book telephone appointments when you feel your concern could be adequately addressed in this way.

As ever, if you develop symptoms of COVID-19 please avoid coming to the surgery unless medically necessary and follow the government guidelines for testing and self isolation.

Prescription Requests

Please note that we now require 72 hours notice for repeat prescription requests.
