Welcome To Kirkby Malzeard & Masham Surgeries
New Guidance On Mask Wearing
In line with recent NHS Guidance, we have removed the need for patients and staff to wear face masks whilst at the Practice. We do however continue to ask that patients with symptoms of covid or other respiratory infections (such as cough, fever, sore throat, cold etc) do continue to wear a face mask whilst in the practice, to protect other vulnerable patients and colleagues. When you attend the Practice there may be patients and staff who continue to wear a face covering and we ask that you respect their need to do so. Our staff will be happy to wear one in consultations if you would prefer them to do so.

Vaccinations for 16 - 17 year olds
We are aware that the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation has recommended the extension of the Covid-19 vaccination programme to 16 and 17 year olds. We are awaiting further guidance from NHS England on when the programme will commence and how the vaccinations will be administered to this age group.
Please do not contact your GP – eligible young people will be contacted when the programme commences to advise on the next steps.
Now we have the new IT system installed at the Practice Patient Access no longer works as it is not compatible. The NHS app can be downloaded or an alternative to Patient Access is available called systmonline. Please email the Surgery rather than phoning at HARDCCG.DrAkesterPractice@nhs.net if you would like setting up for this and we will respond as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience.
We have been receiving a lot of calls today from patients who have received a letter about covid vaccination asking them for lots of personal information, including their bank details.
We would NEVER ask for your bank details. We have informed the police about this, but would be grateful if you could share the information about this scam far and wide to protect patients and also allow our phone lines to not be overrun with these queries.
Please send any examples of such letters to email@example.com
We currently have plenty of availability for face to face appointments or telephone calls with our local physiotherapy team.
If you are struggling with a muscular or joint injury, or low back pain, and think you would benefit from their advice please call the surgery to make an appointment with them. It is amazing how much can be done to help start improving things, even at a distance!
There is also a website full of useful tips and information that might be helpful.
