On Sunday 1st August, the Minor Injury Unity in Whitby will change to an Urgent Treatment Centre (UTC).
Find out more about the changes on the PCN website.
New online tools for people living with diabetes are now available on the NHS to help people manage their condition during the coronavirus pandemic.
Three new services will allow people to manage their condition online, with a range of online videos and training available on each app for children and adults.
Recent findings show that people with diabetes face a significantly higher risk of dying with COVID-19 but better management of the condition can help improve control and lead to better outcomes.
Staithes Surgery is part of the Whitby, Coast and Moors Primary Care Network (PCN). PCNs have been created to help integrate primary care with secondary and community services and provide care at greater scale. In doing this we can develop the services we offer to meet the needs of our local population.
Our new website has links that take you to our main PCN website to avoid duplication of information across each of our local GP practices. The ‘your health’ menu tab will take you to information about all the services in our local area, information about managing conditions and looking after you and your family.
You can find out more about our network by clicking on the ‘our network’ tab in the main menu. To get back to our individual practice site, simply select our practice name from the ‘practice websites’ menu tab.
How can I request a sick/fit note?
If you are off work sick for seven days or less, your employer should not ask you for a doctor’s certificate. You will need a medical certificate when you’ve been off more than seven days. The seven days include days that you don’t normally work. So when you work out how long you’ve been off sick, you should include weekends and bank holidays.
A medical certificate note must be signed by a doctor. The Fit Notes mean your GP can give you advice to help you return to work. This is because work can play an important part in helping people to recover from illness on injury. The GP can either say you are not fit for work, or can say you may be fit for work.
If you have seen a doctor at the practice regarding the problem you need a medical certificate for (or we have received a letter from the hospital about your sickness) you may not need to see the doctor again. You can complete a fit note request form at reception, which will be passed to the doctor to review. The doctor may also be able to speak to you on the telephone depending on how well they know you and why you are off work sick.
How can I register for online services
You can now use the internet to book appointments with a GP, request repeat prescriptions for any medications you take regularly and to look at allergies and adverse reactions within your medical record. You will need to think of a password which is unique to you. This will ensure that only you are able to access your record – unless you choose to share your details with a family member or carer.
Please request a online access form from reception.
How do I complete a travel risk assessment
For travel immunisations and advice please complete the travel vaccination questionnaire and make an appointment to see the Practice Nurse, 6 to 8 weeks prior to travel. We recommend that you see us early in case you require a course of immunisations.
How do I register as a new patient?
We welcome new patients who wish to register with us.
To register with our surgery you will need to complete a registration form and a health questionnaire. The forms are available to collect from our surgery during our opening hours, or alternatively you may wish to download, print and complete a copy from our website. The appropriate form/s can be downloaded below or from our documents page:
New patient check
Once you have provided us with your completed registration form, health questionnaire and identification please make an appointment with our Nurse or Health Care Assistant for a ‘new patient check’. As part of this check up, we will take basic measurements such as blood pressure, height and weight.
