Latest News and Staying in Touch with Spa Surgery
Summer Tea Party for Senior Citizens at Harrogate Grammar School!
Monday 4 July, 2.30pm-4.30pm
Harrogate Grammar School would like to invite local senior citizens to their Summer Tea Party where students of the school will be organising refreshments, entertainment and a raffle.
All are welcome, please call 01423 535235 to reserve.
We continue to work differently during this time, but the surgery and other NHS services remain open. We continue to offer:
If you have access to the internet, this is by far the easiest way to submit your health queries to us and for a clinician to review your needs. Whether it’s an ailment or an admin query, it can be dealt with online. You can also submit photos. Using the e-consult system for non-urgent matters saves you waiting on the phone and reduces wait times for our urgent calls.
To keep our patients and staff safe, your first contact with a clinician will be on the phone. This allows clinicians to ensure that only patients that really need examining come into the surgery.
Push Doctor - Video Consultations
We have access to video consultations with Locum GPs. You can access these by requesting a link from our Care Navigator Team or alternatively download the app and book your own video consultation appointment (please note this is only when the Practice deems it necessary to use this service). You will need photgraphic ID (e.g. driving license or Passport) and the Locum will be able to access your records and prescribe where required or advise you of the next best steps to treat your condition.
Face to Face consultations
If in your first contact with a clinician, they feel it’s necessary for you to attend the surgery, you will be invited to do so. Fewer face to face attendances ensures our environment remains clean and safe.
