Important Notice to Patients - 15 May 2017
Last Friday, 12 May, the NHS, along with many other organisations, experienced a 'cyber attack' which may be affecting our computer systems.
There are no reports of any patient information being compromised but the Practice is taking the threat very seriously and we may need to suspend our IT systems as a precautionary measure over the coming days.
This may cause delays such as making appointments and printing prescriptions.
We are grateful for your patience and understanding as we try to ensure safe care for everyone.
Sarah Powell, Business Manager
Welcome to Hedon Group Practice
"Quality healthcare for our community"
Hedon Group Practice is a well established practice which has grown over the years to provide a wide range of quality healthcare for the population of South Holderness. We are situated in the centre of the East Yorkshire market town of Hedon.
We are an established training practice with a large team of experienced doctors, nurses and allied health professionals committed to providing a wide variety of services. Further details can be found in the relevant page 'Clinics and Services' at the top left of this page.
The practice is situated partly within the historic Grade 2 listed 'Market Hill House', and those familiar with the practice will be aware that over time the building has been extensively extended to accommodate additional staff and facilities. We have just completed a major first floor extension which provides additional consulting rooms and new training facilities.
Our branch surgery is situated approximately 4 miles east of Hedon in the village of Keyingham, and a range of surgeries and clinics are provided there, in addition to dispensing services.
Statement of Intent
NHS England require practices to promote and offer the facility to enable patients to have detailed coded online access to their medical records, test results, immunisations, appointments, prescriptions, allergies and adverse reactions by 31 March 2016. The practice has this in place already with Patient Access.
Below are a couple of posters which will help you decide if you require a Doctor appointment.
