About Us

Scorton Medical Centre is a General Practice Partnership open to all patients living within our Practice boundary in Scorton and the surrounding areas. We work in partnership with our patients and our Patient Participation Group to provide medical care for our patients.

We are a General Medical Services (GMS) Practice offering Primary care services for the diagnosis and prevention of disease. We help patients to manage their health and prevent illness. Our GPs assess, diagnose, treat and manage illness. They carry out screening for some diseases and promote general health and wellbeing. Our GPs act as a patient’s advocate, supporting and representing a patient’s best interests to ensure they receive the best and most appropriate health and/or social care. Our GPs also provide the link to further health services and work closely with other healthcare colleagues. They may also arrange hospital admissions and referrals to other services and specialists and they link with secondary and community services about patient care, taking advice and sharing information where needed. They also collect and record important information from other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of our patients.

Where we are

We provide high quality, safe, professional Primary Health Care General Practice services to our patients.

We focus on prevention of disease by promoting health and wellbeing and offering care and advice to our patients.

We work in partnership with our patients, their families and carers towards a positive experience and understanding, involving them in decision making about their treatment and care.

We treat patients as individuals and with the same respect we would want for ourselves or a member or our families, listening and supporting people to express their needs and wants and enabling people to maintain the maximum possible level of independence, choice and control.

We work together to make people feel more connected within our communities.

We’re breaking down barriers in communication and have realised we can do more for patients when we work as one team.

We deliver seamless services with compassion and a friendly and positive attitude. We design patient-centred ways of working collaboratively, that are responsive and flexible.

Together our practices serve a patient population of almost 54,000
