Nidderdale Group Practice
We are a three-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.

There are now more routine primary care appointments available making it easier for you to get an appointment at a time that suits you in the evenings and at weekends.
This is an extension of your usual primary care service. It is not a walk-in-service - you need to make an appointment by telephoning your usual surgery.
The Service currently available to our patients is located at Mowbray Square Medical Centre in Harrogate. Appointments are available from 4pm - 8pm weekdays and on Saturday and Sunday mornings from 8.30am - 12.30pm.

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.
