Advice Re: Unwell or injured children

We are experiencing telephone issues today. Please continue to try ringing if experiencing difficulty.

Due to Covid-19 we are operating a restricted entry system, there is a door bell to press to obtain entry for appointments only. Patients who have an appointment will have their temperature taken before being allowed to enter. Some patients, once rang the bell, may be told to wait outside our fire exit to await direction from a clinician wearing PPE.

Doctors and staff will be wearing scrubs and PPE  which will include face mask.
If you require a prescription please download the NHS App, or order via the practice prescription email address stccg.saltscarprescriptions@nhs.net​ or telephone after 10 am.
 All Prescriptions will be sent electronically to the chemist. NOT to be collected from the surgery

During the Covid19 Pandemic our GP's are warning against the use of Ibuprofen or Nurofen for pain or fever as patients on these have had a worse outcome in Italy as per a Lancet Research article. Our advice is to use Paracetamol only to control any fever or pain. Please also note Codeine also supresses breathing. All our patients have access to telephone advice during office hours, please ring if you need advice.

New Patient Registration

If you live within our practice area you are welcome to register with us and our reception staff will be happy to guide you through the procedure.

The Practice covers:

  • Marske & New Marske
  • Wilton, Lazenby & Yearby.

We are unable to accept patients outside of this area.

Patients wishing to join will need to complete a registration form (GMS1) and a health questionnaire which will provide useful information whilst we wait for your medical records to arrive from their previous doctor.

New patients may be offered a health check with a member of the healthcare team to ensure that any required tests are up to date and that we have an accurate note of any repeat medication they may be taking.

Once registered, patients may book appointments with the GP of their choice subject to availabilty.

New Patients Prescribing Policy
