Nidderdale Group Practice
We are a four-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.

Our Mission Statement
Nidderdale Group Practice is committed to providing the highest quality of care for people living in Nidderdale, within Nidderdale.
Extended Primary Care Service - more appointments for you
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.

Harrogate District Hospital is experiencing unprecedented high levels of admissions and would ask members of the public to only use the A&E Department if emergency medical attention is needed. We would always encourage the public to consider using other services that are available to ensure that patients with emergency conditions can be seen as soon as possible.
For patients with non-emergency symptoms please visit your community Pharmacist for advice or look online for advice here
If you feel you need medical attention but are unsure where to turn, please contact NHS 111. If you feel that you do need to see a clinician, please consider ringing your GP practice to book an appointment with them or request an appointment at the extended hours Primary Care Hubs in Harrogate which are open on Saturday morning. NHS 111 is still available when the practice is closed if you feel you need out of hours non-emergency medical help and advice.

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.
