Welcome to Scarborough Medical Group
Scarborough Medical Group aims to provide high quality healthcare to the people of Scarborough and its surrounding district. We have three surgeries across Scarborough; Danes Dyke, South Cliff and Cloughton. Our doctors, nurses and practice staff are dedicated to offering our patients a professional service. With help from our practice website we aim to keep our patients up to date with all the latest news and information about our practice.
***FACE COVERINGS TO BE WORN WHEN ENTERING THE SURGERY***
To further protect our staff and patients the surgery would request that anyone entering the building has a face covering in place. This can be a mask or a simple covering such as a scarf. Thank you for your co-operation.
COVID-19 Vaccination Programme Information
The Covid-19 Vaccination Programme is now underway. We have been busy vaccinating our patients over the age of 80 and will have completed vaccinating care home residents and staff by Tuesday 19th Jan 2021.
For more updates about the Covid-19 Vaccination Programme please click here.
Patients are reminded that we are extremely busy and need to ensure that our most vulnerable patients are able to contact us easily. All non-urgent queries should, where you are able, be submitted via our online consultation request that can be found on our website.
Please be advised that the Practice is not currently running at its full staff capacity and this naturally adds to the pressures the Practice faces in handling high volumes of enquiries.
If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and a high temperature, you are advised to stay at home for 7 days. DO NOT book a GP appointment or attend your GP Practice.
If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.
Only call 111 direct if you cannot go online, or are advised to do so by the online service.
