Nidderdale Group Practice
We are a five-Partner practice operating from three modern, purpose-built surgeries covering the area of Nidderdale stretching from the western side of Harrogate up to the remote areas of Upper Nidderdale such as Scar and Lofthouse.
The practice premises has access routes suitable for patients using wheelchairs or walking aids and all clinical rooms are accessible. Patients may be dropped off outside our surgery entrance and there is an on-site wheelchair available. Each building has disabled toilets facilities and induction loops for the benefit of hard-of-hearing patients are available.
This website tells you about the practice and the services that are on offer from the Primary Health Care Team, which includes receptionists, dispensers, practice and district nurses, health care assistants, midwife and health visitors in addition to the doctors and nurse practitioners. We also enjoy the support of a visiting podiatrist, physiotherapist, counsellor and mental health link worker and a Carers Resource worker.
On joining the practice you will be offered a new patient health check with the health care assistant or the practice nurse as part of our policy for health promotion.
We aim to offer a high quality service in a warm and friendly environment, with the emphasis on providing a wide range of services at each of our surgeries.

Registering with the Practice
New patients should register at Reception. If you would like more information how to do this please click here.
All our patients have been allocated a named GP who will have overall responsibility for your care and support. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice. This doctor is chosen at random and you can find out the name of your “named GP” by contacting the surgery. Should you have a preference for your allocated GP then please contact the surgery.
When making an appointment you can choose to see any of the doctors at your surgery, but remember you may have to wait longer to see your doctor of choice.
