I need to make a routine appointment
If you are unwell or need medical/health advice, you may not be sure of where to go for help. At Church Lane Surgery we have clinicians with differing specialities and skills. It is not always best to simply make a doctor's appointment.
Long term conditions such as diabetes, coronary heart disease and respiratory problems are managed and treated by our specialist nurses.
If you need a blood test there are walk in clinics at Harrogate hospital and Chain Lane Chemist in Knarebough. Appointments can be booked at Ripon hospital or we can access clinics run by Yorkshire Health Network in Knaresborough and Harrogate.
Depending on the problem, you may need to visit an external health provider such as a Pharmacy, Family Planning Clinic, Sexual Health Clinic, Minor Injuries department, A&E department, Dentist, or one of the many other services operating in the Harrogate and Rural District CCG.
A range of appointment types are available and we will always try and accommodate the best solution for you. Telephone and video consultations are an alternative to face to face appointments where this is appropriate.
E-consults are available via the blue pop up on the website. Please fill out the online questionnaire and you will receive advice by the end of the next working day.
