Whitby Group Practice is a Personal Medical Services Practice, located in Spring Vale Medical Centre in Whitby, North Yorkshire. We have a current list size of 14,200 patients. The Practice provides a service to residents of Whitby and the surrounding villages. We also have a branch surgery at Robin Hood’s Bay, approximately 5 miles from Whitby along the coast. Both surgeries are purpose built, have a dispensary and ample parking. They are owned by the Partners. The Practice dispenses to 22% of patients. In addition, Spring Vale Medical Centre also has a Pharmacy located within the premises, and Robin Hood’s Bay Surgery houses a separate Dental Practice.
In order to improve patient access, we are changing our appointment system from the 11th March 2019.
We are hoping the new system will allow us to increase our available book-ahead appointments for those patients with long term or complex conditions.

Helping you get the right care, in the most appropriate place, first time.
