Welcome to Park Parade Surgery in Harrogate
Our practice team consists of five GPs, two practice nurses, community midwife, health visitor, district nurses and counsellors.
The telephones are manned during the times shown below but appointment times vary, we offer early morning appointments every Tuesday for routine matters for those patients who may have difficulty attending the surgery within our usual times due to work/school/college schedules or travel commitments.
Monday – Friday 8am to 6pm
You can now download many of the forms that are available to pick up at the practice, online.
We accept completed forms via post, email or in person at the surgery.
We still have some flu vaccines left so if you haven’t had yours yet it’s not too late, please contact the surgery to book an appointment with the nurse.
SHINGLES VACCINE – if you were aged 70, 78 or 79 on 1st September 2014 you are entitled to the shingles vaccine, this can be given at the same time as the flu vaccine.
NEW ALTERNATIVE BLOOD CLINIC – there is now a new blood collection service at Sainsbury’s within the pharmacy. This is a drop-in service available Monday to Friday between 7.30am – 11am and is provided by experienced Harrogate hospital staff. There is a ‘shop while you wait’ paging system and the early start may be suitable if you are on your way to work etc. Simply take your blood form with you!
ONLINE ACCESS FOR CHILDREN
Following feedback from our recent patient survey we have worked to introduce online registration for children aged between 0 and 12. This registration will be managed by the parent or guardian and only they will have the log in details. We feel that it is not possible to offer online services to patients between the ages of 13 and 15. This is because the parent or guardian would hold the access details and as a consequence of this, those young people would not have appropriate confidentiality. Although we recognise that in most circumstances parents have right of access to their 13 year olds’ health record, there are certain situations in which this is not correct, and this view is upheld by medico-legal guidance. Similarly when the young person reaches the age of 16 they can register for online access in their own right and the log in details should not be shared with parents. If you would like to obtain a password for your child please see the receptionist. Please note that we will require a form of ID for the parent or guardian, such as a passport or driving licence, before the password can be issued.
If you have a controlled drug on your prescription these are unable to be sent electronically, therefore the controlled drug will be on a printed paper prescription and any other medications will be sent electronically to your pharmacy of choice. We are making you aware of this in case of any issues arising around collection from/delivery by the pharmacy, as items may be processed separately and therefore not all be ready at the same time.
BOOKING APPOINTMENTS ONLINE
In order to improve the services we offer to our patients, and as a result of patient feedback, we have decided to make it possible for you to book some types of nurse appointments online in addition to GP appointments.
To see the nurse for a variety of things you can now book a 15 minute appointment with either of our practice nurses, Sister Karen Ashton or Sister Nadine Collinge: Click here for more information
