  • Minor surgery no longer available

Minor Injuries Service

Regrettably, due to the CCG’s decision in April 2019 to stop commissioning the practice based minor injuries service we are no longer able to accept minor injuries patients. The CCG has instructed that anyone with a minor injury should attend their nearest A&E unit or Urgent Treatment Centre. The nearest units to us are:

  • Darlington Memorial Hospital
  • The Friarage Hospital

Our receptionists have been given instructions to redirect patients to these centres. If you unhappy with this arrangement, please contact: Humber and North Yorkshire Health Care Partnership:

By post – Humber and North Yorkshire Health and Care Partnership, Health House, Grange Park Lane, Willerby, HU10 6DT.

Social Prescribing

What is social prescribing?

Social prescribing is a way for GPs to refer people to a link worker. Link workers give people time, focusing on ‘what matters to me’ and taking a holistic approach to people’s health and wellbeing. They connect people to community groups and statutory services for practical and emotional support.

Social prescribing works for a wide range of people, including people:

  • with one or more long-term conditions
  • who need support with their mental health
  • who are lonely or isolated
  • who have complex social needs which affect their wellbeing.

You can ask Reception to put you in touch with a Social Prescribing Link worker or a GP may recommend one contacts you.

For more information, see the documents below.
