Welcome to Posterngate Surgery Online
We are a 7 Partner GP practice situated in purpose built premises in the centre of Selby, covering a radius of about 7 miles. We operate one branch surgery in Hemingbrough which is only open part of the week and is for patients who live at Hemingbrough or Cliffe. For details of the branch surgery and its opening hours, please click on the 'Opening Hours' tab above.
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.
As a practice we also take part in occasional research projects.
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. Please have a look around the website and feel free to send us some feedback.
Flu Campaign 2018-19
Our drop-in clinics at Posterngate Surgery are being held on Saturday 22nd September and Saturday 3rd November 2018 between 8am and 1pm. There is no need to book an appointment for these clinics.
Please do not bring children under 18 years old to the first drop in clinic as we will not have had our delivery of vaccines for these patients.
In addition, we have pre-bookable appointments for Saturday 13th October. These appointments will be made available to book from Monday 1st October by calling the Surgery on 01757 702561. We will also have pre-bookable appointments within the week you can book, if you are unable to attend on a Saturday.
CHANGES TO THE FLU PROGRAMME 2018/19
There is a national change in the sort of flu vaccination which is being offered to people 65 years and over.
The Department of Health has recommended a vaccine which has been shown to be more effective for these patients. However, supplies of this vaccine are being controlled nationally and all surgeries and pharmacies are receiving their supply in strict batches at set times.
We do not anticipate an issue with the supply of vaccine for our under 65 patients as these vaccines are being delivered more promptly.
As a consequence of this change, we have altered our October Flu Clinic to be appointment based so that we can ensure we have sufficient vaccines for our patients who attend this Clinic.

Controlled Drug Prescriptions
We are changing the way in which we handle collection of controlled drug prescriptions. You may continue to order in the same way as before.
From the 13th September 2018 any prescriptions which list a controlled drug will now be recorded as collected electronically.
As part of the new process our care navigators may ask for ID for confirmation of who is collecting. Acceptable forms of ID include bank card, driving license, passport or other photo-identification.
This is to provide a safer and more effective service. Although this process may take a little longer, we thank you for your patience.
NHS Provision of Gluten Free Food in the Vale of York Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) Area.
The Vale of York CCG have given careful consideration to the feedback from the local consultation and the subsequent recommendations from the Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC) review following their national consultation on gluten free foods.
Consequently, the decision has been made by the Vale of York CCG to adopt the position recommended by the DHSC and to provide gluten free bread and mixes on prescription for all patients with a confirmed diagnoses of Coeliac Disease.
Gluten Free Flour will be removed from the national drug tariff and this will mean that it will no longer be able to be prescribed.
The CCG has requested that patients are reminded that “This is our NHS, so let’s take care of it together” and to think about what Gluten Free products are ordered, to only make requests for what you need and to only rely on the NHS supply if absolutely necessary.
There is currently a measles outbreak in the Leeds area. Measles is one of the most highly infectious communicable diseases. Spending 15 minutes or more in direct contact with someone infected with measles is considered a significant exposure. Immunocompromised patients, pregnant women and unvaccinated infants are at increased risk of this severe disease.
You need two doses of MMR one month apart to be fully protected against measles, mumps and rubella. If you and unsure whether you have been vaccinated, please contact the surgery to check.
