Chronic Disease Recall Notice: We have introduced a new annual review recall system grouping chronic conditions together into one letter where possible and calling for patients alphabetically. For this year only you may receive your recall letter earlier than you would expect to attend, but we would still like you to make the required appointments. Through introducing this new system we aim to reduce the amount of letters/correspondence we send you, reduce multiple and unnecessary blood tests and save the amount of time patients take to attend the surgery for multiple reviews.

Private Work: Our 2019 list of fees for private work has been updated please click here

New Email Address: nhsbsolccg.receptionywhc@nhs.net we no longer use reception.ywhc@nhs.net

Text Messaging: Check your contact details are up to date with reception ASAP to make the most of our new text messaging service, where your doctor, nurse or receptionist will pass on important information to you or ask you to book an appointment.
