A NEW GP surgery has been formally opened.

Tollerton Surgery, near Easingwold, had long outgrown its original site and now a purpose-built premise has been officially opened.

The surgery has five large consulting rooms, a treatment room, meeting room with a digital communications facility, staff room, an increase in office space and modern dispensary.

“We are delighted to have opened our brand new practice,” said Dr Sarah Utting, GP principal at Tollerton Surgery.

“The project has been many years in development and we are all thrilled with the outcome.

“The new surgery offers far better facilities, including large car park, disabled access, electric couches, and dementia-friendly features, all located within a tranquil space built to the highest safety standards.

“We now have a beautiful surgery that is fit for modern day practice that offers an altogether enhanced patient experience.”

Tollerton Surgery now offers a range of services including in-house physiotherapy sessions and a social prescribing link worker to work with patients who suffer from mental health conditions and those who need extra social support.
