Face Coverings and Masks

We respectively request that patients wear some form of face mask/covering when attending the surgery if they are experiencing respiratory symptoms. This is in the interests of safety and to try and reduce the potential transmission of Covid-19 within the practice.  If you are attending the practice and do not have any respiratory-type symptoms, it is no longer a requirement for you to wear a face covering.  Any help you can give is hugely appreciated.

NEW APPOINTMENT SYSTEM

APPOINTMENT SYSTEM IMPROVEMENT
From the 25th of April we are making a change to the way GP and ANP appointments are made at the surgery. This is to allow those who most need an appointment to get one.
 
All requests for appointments will be triaged by a GP before an appointment is given. The GP will determine how quickly an appointment is needed and whether your request would be better dealt with by another service.
 
In order to triage your appointment requests we will be using an online consult system and therefore request that those who are able complete the online appointment form on our website. We understand that a small number of patients will be unable to complete this and we ask that these patients ring in and a receptionist will complete it for them.

STAFF PRESSURES

Due to the number of staff isolating because of Covid and other staff absences, we are struggling to staff our dispensaries at both Driffield and Nafferton. We apologise for any inconvenience but this is a specialised role that not just anyone can do.

The Driffield site will be open daily, Monday to Friday, 8.00 am - 6.30 pm with the exception of Tuesdays which will be 8.00 am - 5.00 pm for the foreseeable future (please note closed lunchtimes 12.30 pm  - 1.30 pm).  It is possible that they may need to change at short notice and we will highlight below if this is necessary.

Nafferton Surgery will have to close on occasion to support the main site.  Again we will try and publicise with as much notice as we can.
