Introduction

Welcome to the Central Dales Practice. In alphabetical order, this website gives you information to help you make the best use of our services. The practice undertakes the training of medical students. All of the doctors are partners in the Practice.

Accidents

Initial assessment and treatment of casualties is available at either surgery or at the scene, between 8.30am - 6.00pm. The nearest hospital Accident and Emergency department is 37 miles away at Friarage Hospital, Northallerton (01609 779911). For serious injuries, please call 999 for an ambulance without delay. See also Minor Injuries.

Ambulance Transport

If you are unable to arrange your own transport for hospital appointments, please call The Yorkshire Ambulance Service on 0845 120 3192 who will be able to help. Patients are requested to arrange this transport themselves.

Confidentiality

No detail about any patient will be released to any person, company or organisation outside the NHS without the patient’s written consent. You have the right to access any information we hold about you, except in circumstances where your doctor judges that to reveal such information would be harmful to you. Please ask at reception or via the telephone if you require access.

Contraception And Family Planning

Advice is available from all the doctors. There is no designated clinic. Coils can be fitted by appointment.

Dentist

NHS dentistry is available most Fridays at Hawes Surgery. Please call 01677 425 427 for an appointment. Leyburn Dental Practice runs surgeries at Hawes every day except Fridays. Call 01969 622132 for an appointment. This is a private dental practice that may be able to provide NHS dental care to under 18s.

NHS 111

You can now access advice 24 hours a day, 7 days a week by calling NHS 111 simply by dialling 111. NHS 111 can put you in touch with appropriate healthcare resources or offer self-help advice and treatment.

Violent Patients

The practice operates a zero-tolerance policy towards abuse and violence from patients. Should any incident involving violence towards any member of staff, healthcare provider or any another person occur on the practice premises, or at any place where treatment is provided, the police will be called immediately. Violent patients will be removed from the practice list and no further treatment will be provided. In these circumstances, patients should contact North Yorkshire and Humber Commissioning Support Unit, which provides special facilities for the treatment of potentially violent patients.
