Elvington Medical Practice is a semi-rural dispensing practice with a list size of approximately 7100 patients. Located to the southeast of York, the practice covers approximately 100 km² so although visit numbers are generally low, it is quite easy to travel many miles through the wonderful countryside on a single visit.
The main surgery is based in Elvington in modern purpose built premises. Trainees have a dedicated consulting room and undertake all surgeries from the main site. There is one branch surgery in the village of Wheldrake. Given our semi-rural location and the fact that patients live more than 1 mile away from a chemist, we are able to dispense to our patients. We were proud to be the first dispensing practice in the North of England to install a dispensing robot to help as with this process.
All partners have an interesting medical education; in addition to being a postgraduate training practice, we also teach medical students from the Hull York Medical School. 5 out of 6 doctors in the practice trained on the York GP scheme.
