Changes at The Ridings Medical Group – Brough & South Cave Surgeries

“Published on Mar 13, 2020

In the current situation to reduce risk from patient contact we are trying to do as many appointments as we can over the telephone.

We are also looking to defer annual and chronic disease reviews where possible. We are currently not taking bookings for routine procedures.

During this time we have taken the decision to move all routine appointments from South Cave and this site will be reserved for minor illness.

The dispensary at South Cave will remain open and we will have a separate entrance for patient to collect medication.

The dispensaries at the remaining sites will also remain open.

Please do not walk in to South Cave (or any site) for appointment bookings. Patient must call the appointment line.”
