Stockton on the Forest Surgery changes
09th November 2022 - 4:52 PM
YORK PATIENTS: As you will be aware, GP practices across the country are under extreme pressure. Like many, we are struggling to recruit support staff, especially to work on the reception desks.
Despite our greatest efforts, we can no longer provide a safe service at our Stockton on the Forest Surgery in York, due to reception staff shortages.
Our Stockton on the Forest Surgery will therefore be temporarily closed from 10 November 2022.
We must emphasise that this is a temporary measure, and we aim to return to full opening hours as soon as we have recruited and trained new staff members.
Haxby & Wigginton, Gale Farm and Huntington surgeries will remain open 8:00am – 6:00pm. All our patients can still contact us online from 7:00am – 7:00pm Monday to Friday, or by phone from 8:00am – 6:00pm.
If you need to order your medication you can do this using the NHS App, our website, or on the paper counterfoil which will need taking to one of our alternative surgeries. Please do not take paper prescription requests to Stockton on the Forest.
We would ask that you support our efforts to recruit additional administrative staff for the surgery by promoting our jobs and urging anyone interested to apply via our careers opportunities page
