Out Of Hours
The opening hours for Elvington Medical Practice can be found here. During these hours our staff will be able to handle your queries, book appointments and process prescriptions.
Between the hours of 6pm and 8am, our telephones are unmanned. You can still however use our automated booking system to book, check or cancel appointments, or leave a message for the dispensary team.
Always ask yourself: Can I treat myself at home? Could my local pharmacist help?
If you need to speak with a doctor between 6pm and 8am, you should call the Out of Hours service on 0300 1230762.
If you have an urgent medical need for advice or guidance you should call the NHS non-emergency line 111.
Only in an emergency if someone is seriously ill or injured, and their life is at risk should you call 999.
On Monday 9 July 2018 we are launching our improved appointment system to ensure that all patients have access to the right health care professional at the right time, first time.
All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice, the required disclosure is shown here.
Dr David Lightwing, who has worked in the practice for 19 years, has now retired and we wish him well in the future. We are also pleased to announce that Dr Tim Longmore has now taken on the role of Senior Partner for the practice.
In addition to overseeing prescription management systems, Andy will be providing appointments for medication reviews and will also be available to answer any medicines related queries by telephone.
