Beech Grove Medical Practice
The doctors and staff at Beech Grove Medical Practice in York are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare.
We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side.
Named Accountable GP For All Patients
From 1st April 2015, all practices are required to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients.
Our patients have been assigned a named GP, and you can be advised of this at your next interaction with the practice by asking the receptionist.
Rest assured that this will not impact on your experience at the practice, the provision of appointments at Beech Grove, your treatment, or what GP you can see.
You may wonder why your allocated GP is not necessarily the one you see the most regularly. Please be assured that you can still access all of our medical team in exactly the same way as before.
If you have a preference as to which GP you are allocated, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate your request.
Please do not telephone the practice for this information, our phone lines are very busy and primarily are for patients with urgent needs.
If you are 75 and over you will have already been allocated a named GP and notified in writing to that effect.
Friends & Family Test - Have your say to improve your care
We would like your feedback on the care or treatment we give you any time you visit your GP or have contact with the practice. It doesn't take long.
Put us to the test and tell us what is working and what we can improve. You can say what you think without giving your name and we will use the information to plan improvements to our services. To complete the Friends & Family Test use the link in the menu on the right hand side.
Registering for Online Services
If you wish to register for the online service please ask at reception for a password. Once this has been issued you can log in and you will be able to make and cancel appointments, order repeat prescriptions and send messages to the surgery.
Please allow one hour from registration before attempting to logon to our on-line services.
Electronic Prescription Service
The Electronic Prescription Service allows your prescription to be sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.
To sign up, you need to speak to your preferred pharmacy and complete a form to confirm that they can receive your prescription directly.
Once you have signed up, your chosen pharmacy will receive your prescription electronically and you will not have to pick up your paper prescription from us. However, please note that in the future if you decide to change your nominated pharmacy then it is your responsibility to inform the practice and the previously nominated pharmacy of the change.
If you have already nominated a pharmacy, from 08/09/2015, your prescription will be sent to them electronically unless you tell us otherwise. If you need to obtain a paper prescription for any reason, just let us know at the time of ordering.
This service is optional and you can continue to collect paper prescriptions as you do now if you prefer.
For more information, please speak to your pharmacist.
