Welcome to Posterngate Surgery Online
We are a 6 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.

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.

Flu campaign 2020/21 – Over 65s and clinically at risk patients
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic we are making changes to how our flu clinics operate this year.
We will not be holding drop in clinics, clinics will be by appointment only, details on how to book are included on flu invite letters sent to eligible patients.
Children’s flu clinics are being organised separately to the adult campaign, invite letters will be issued once supplies of vaccine are confirmed via Public Health England.
The information we have from NHS England confirms patients aged 50-64 who do not usually receive a flu invite letter (not clinically at risk) will not be vaccinated until November and December, the vaccination programme for these patients will be subject to there being sufficient vaccine.
If you have developed a new continuous cough and/or fever and/or loss of/change in smell or taste you should self-isolate for a minimum of 10 days or until you are symptom free.
Anyone living with you should self-isolate for 14 days if they remain symptom free or 10 days from the date they develop symptoms.
Please do not attend the Surgery.
