Our aim is to provide the highest standard of care, support and understanding for everyone that our Surgery serves.
If you have a problem that you believe needs our help and needs to be dealt with that day we will offer you the opportunity to speak to or be seen by a doctor or nurse on the day that you call. We will always respond swiftly and appropriately to emergencies. All of our GPs and staff are here to help.
You can book an appointment up to three months in advance in person, over the telephone or online.
We believe that continuity of care is important and have organised our appointment system to enable you to see the doctor or nurse of your choice wherever possible. We work hard as a Practice Team to try to meet your needs the best that we can at all times.
We pro-actively invite our patients to attend regular review appointments for the management of long term conditions with our nursing team and GP's for a wide number of conditons including asthma and diabetes. We will let you know in writing when your review is due and if you need more than one then we will try and arrange these all on the same day to save you having to make more than one visit to the Surgery.
We offer a wide variety of medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, joint injections, full contraception services and childhood vaccinations. We are also able to assess and treat minor injuries.
In addition, we are also keen to enable other healthcare professionals to use our Surgery so that services can be provided close to home for our patients. Podiatry, physiotherapy, addictive behaviour and mental health services are all provided within the practice through visiting consultants and other health care professionals.
We have full disabled access with automatic doors and all services are on one level. We have a disabled parking bay in our car park at the back of the surgery.
Community Services - Supporting People in their Homes
To support our patients in the home, we work closely as a team with the community nurses and health visitors who have a base in our building. We also work closely with the Macmillan, Heart Failure and Respiratory and Diabetes Specialist nurses.
Voluntary Sector Liaison Team - working with our voluntary and community colleagues to promote healthy lives
We have a Voluntary Sector Liaison Team within the Surgery. This team works closely with our third sector colleagues to help promote the essential work that they do both within the Surgery and, where appropriate, to individual patients too. If you are involved with a voluntary or community group and would like us to promote the work that they do then please contact us and ask to speak to Gilly.
Training the GPs of the Future
The Kirkbymoorside Surgery is a member of the York GP Registrar Scheme. This means that we provide vocational training in general medicine for those doctors who want to specialise in working in general practice. Whilst undertaking this trianing, these doctors are known as GP Registrars. They usually complete a six-month placement in two different GP practices. Dr Lodge is accredited to provide this high level of training.
