Welcome to York Street Medical Practice

NEW PHONE SYSTEM- 4th August 2023

We are having a new phone system installed on 4th August. We apologise for any disruption caused while this is being set up. Thank you for your cooperation.  


Visiting the Practice

We encourage you to continue to wear a face covering whilst in the building where possible, and especially if you are showing signs of a respiratory illness. If you have a routine appointment booked and are too unwell to attend or have tested positive for COVID, please cancel your appointment by calling the surgery number on 01223 364116.

We have a limited number of face to face appointments to book up to 7 days in advance. These are to be used by patients that need to be seen by the GP. We are still booking the majority of our GP consultations by phone and you will then be invited for a face to face appointment if needed.

Nurse appointments can be booked up to 7 days in advance.

From June 2023, we will be introducing a small number of GP appointments available to book online for those patients with online access. Please visit the ‘Online forms’ tab for how to set this up.

We are following the national Infection Prevention Control (IPC) Guidance for all healthcare settings which will help to ensure the safety of our staff and patients at all times.


Flu Vaccines 2023/24

We will shortly be sending out flu vaccine invitations. These will be to our patients 65 years and over and those under 65 who are clinically at risk.

Flu vaccines are not being offered to patients between the ages of 50-64 this year, unless patients are clinically at risk.

We will be offering the following Saturdays, with clinics during the week once these have finished.

Saturday 23rd September- Over 65 years of age

Saturday 30th September- Under 64 and clinically at risk

Saturday 7th October- Over 65 years of age

Saturday 14th October- Both over 65 and under 64 clinically at risk


We will not be offering COVID vaccines this Autumn. Please book via on the NHS website HERE or call NHS 119


Repeat prescriptions 

Many pharmacies are no longer requesting prescriptions on patients behalf. You now need to do this with the practice yourself.  You can do this either by emailing us at repeat@nhs.net, using the NHS app or online services, using our online form Order your Repeat Prescription or in writing and dropping into the surgery.

Please allow 3 working days from the date you requested for your medication to be issued to the pharmacy.


Choosing the right option

GP appointments are only for illnesses and injuries that wont go away. For other problems you might need a different solution

Self-care – there are lots of things that you can do to take care of yourself. PLEASE USE THE NHS 111 service linked on the right to answer the question whether you need to contact the surgery for assessment by a clinician for your SYMPTOMS. 

Pharmacy – your local pharmacist can provide a consultation area to speak privately so other people cant hear. They can tell you if you need to see your GP.

Colds – There is no cure for the common cold. Click here for information Common Cold

Minor illnesses -Our nurses deal with a wide range of minor illnesses. Click here for details

GP enhanced access


Evening and weekend appointments are available.

We are offering evening and weekend appointments with a GP or nurse as part of  our GP enhanced access.  These are for routine, non-urgent issues. You can book your appointment by calling the surgery on 01223 364116.

If you have an appointment booked with the service and no longer wish to attend or would like to re-arrange, please call 0330 0130 030. For further information please click HERE.

Shotgun Certificates

Due to a change in the requirements and the increased risk of liability for GPs, we are no longer able to accept requests for approval for shotgun certificates. For further information please click HERE


NHS Community Pharmacist Consultation Service (CPCS)

Did you know…?

We are participating in a new approach to improve access for patients to GP appointments. The aim is to direct patients to the most appropriate healthcare professional, which may be a GP or a pharmacist.

If your symptoms could be resolved by a booked consultation with the pharmacist instead of the GP, you will be given a same-day referral to a pharmacy of your choice. We think this is a good thing. Once you see how great your local pharmacist is – they are highly trained and skilled clinicians experienced in treating minor illnesses – we don’t think you’ll look back.

This will also help us to free up GP appointments for people with more complex health needs and ensure that everyone gets treated at the right time, by the right healthcare professional.

We are keen to hear what you think and will be listening to your comments and feedback about your experience of using this service.
