Self care

As well as charities, there are a number of health and social services into which you can self-refer without the need of a formal referral from your doctor.

Don’t forget your local pharmacist can assist with medication queries, offer advice regarding minor ailments and sexual health and provide emergency contraception.


Safeguarding simply means keeping people safe from harm. It is about protecting children and adults from abuse or neglect. The document below contains information on Leyburn Medical Practice’s safeguarding role as well as who you can contact if you are concerned about a child or adult.
