Health Checks

Patients may request to have a medical check up every 3-5 years if they have not been seen during that time.  Appointments can be made with a Practice Nurse.  If the patient is 75 or over, this can be yearly and the consultation can take place in the home of the patient where, in the reasonable opinion of the GP this would be appropriate.

Minor Surgical Procedures

Undertaken by the doctors (by appointment) – for example, removal of skin lesions.

Minor Injuries

Many minor injuries may be dealt with at the surgery but some will be referred on to the Minor Injuries’ Unit at Malton Hospital or an Accident & Emergency Department.  There is not always a doctor on site at Helmsley Medical Centre, we may be out on visits or at necessary meetings - please telephone to check rather than assuming immediate care is available.   Our staff will be able to advise you as to the best place to go for appropriate treatment.
