The Central Dales GP Practice has surgeries at Hawes and Aysgarth.  Details of Doctors’ rotas are published on the Practice website www.centraldalespractice.nhs.uk  and in the Upper Wensleydale Newsletter.

Morning surgeries are open access mostly for urgent consultations.  Please make an afternoon appointment for routine or less urgent consultations.

Each Parish Council served by the Practice has a representative on the Upper Dales Health Watch.  This is in effect the Patient Participation Group for the Practice.  Please contact Jenny Pilgrim, the Representative for Dent, on 015396 25589 or jenny.pilgrim@btinternet.com for further details.  Minutes are to be found at www.parishconnect.co.uk and a synopsis of the latest meeting is available from both surgeries.

NEW RESIDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO REGISTER AS SOON AS POSSIBLE so that if you need to see a doctor, he/she is able to access your medical records.  Patient registration also helps sustain two surgeries in a deeply rural area.
