Wishing Dr Allen A Happy Retirement

Dr Allen has officially retired from the NHS.  

 

Please note his patient's will be allocated to a new accountable GP shortly.  However patients are able to see any GP of choice for continuity of care and patients are registered with the practice rather than an individual GP.

Consult with us online

Did you know you can now consult with our GPs online? You can input your symptoms and will get a response from our Practice typically within 1-2 working days and are either given advice, directed to other sources of support such as the pharmacy, receive a telephone consultation or if necessary booked in for an appointment. You will also have access to reliable and trustworthy self-help generic information 24 hours a day, 7 days a week that may help you to avoid an appointment altogether.  You can also use the system to contact us about test results, sick notes, referral letters and medical reports. It’s easy to get started, just try it and you might save yourself time and a journey. Go to theridingsmedicalgroup.webgp.com

Dr Allen Due to Retire in June 2017

After over 26 years in the Practice at Brough and South Cave Dr Allen will be retiring from clinical work with The Ridings Medical Group on 30th June 2017.

He would like all patients and staff to know that it has been a great privilege and a rare opportunity to work within such a committed team, which has always aspired to deliver a very high standard of care to its patients at a time of considerable change within the NHS and within General Practice.

His decision has been made for family reasons so that he can share more time with relatives near and far and pursue his other interests which include competitive swimming, cycling, walking, music and theatre, travel and learning languages.

He does intend to retain an interest in General Practice through assisting recruitment, training, mentoring and appraising of GPs locally after a long summer break.

The practice will be closed for training from 12.00 noon on Wednesday 8th February and we will reopen at 8.00am (8.30am Bubwith) on Thursday 9th February.

These calls are free from both landlines and mobiles.  The advisors at 111 will assess your condition and direct you to the most appropriate service.  This could be A&E, an out–of–hours doctor, an urgent care centre or a walk–in centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late–opening chemist.
