Ordering of Repeat Prescriptions ( posted on Feb 16, 2017 )

From 1st April 2017 we will only accept telephone calls for repeat prescriptions between the hours of 10.30am and 3pm Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday and 10.00am to 12 noon on a Thursday. 


Repeat prescriptions can be ordered securely online, please see a member of our reception team to sign up for this. 


As advised by the British Medical Association (BMA) we are unable to provide treatment for Dental problems/infections, the General Medical Council (GMC) requires doctors to have appropriate skills for any treatment they offer.  We would advise patients with dental problems to contact their registered Dentist in the first instance however, GPs can provide advice to ascertain that the condition requires only dental treatment.    If you do not have a registered Dentist and access to emergency dental services can be arranged by contacting NHS 111.

Prescriptions received from a Dentist (Yellow Form) should be taken to a pharmacy to be dispensed not presented at Danby Surgery dispensary.

Dr van Dam speaking at Westminster ( posted on Nov 4, 2015 )

Danby GP Dr van Dam has been running a satellite clinic for Botton Village since 2004 and has recently been asked to speak about his experience with caring for people with learning disabilities on a symposium, which was held at Westminster on 15 September 2015. Dr van Dam observed that residents of Botton Village have always enjoyed much better health, physical and mental, than their peers in the rest of the UK, and presented statistics to support this. He explained that this was due to their healthy way of life that included healthy meals, plenty of physical activity as well as the longstanding caring relationships in the family-type homes of Botton, which are all typical of such a Camphill community. In fact, the findings were so remarkable that he wrote about it in a letter to the British Medical Journal. If you are interest can find a link to the presentation on the 'Links' page.

Training ( posted on Apr 18, 2011 )

Danby Surgery is a training practice. This means we often have a GP Registrar, who is a doctor specialising to become a GP, working with us for a 6-12 month period. At times we also have two medical students with us. As the trainee doctor and students can see your medical information, in full confidentiality, we ask patients registering with us to sign a consent form giving permission for them to do so.
