If you have symptoms associated with coronavirus including a new continuous cough and a high temperature, lost sense of smell or taste you are advised to stay at home for 14 days. Do not book a GP appointment or attend your GP Practice.

If you are displaying symptoms of Covid-19 it is recommended that you go get tested. For more info and to book a test or order a home kit please visit

If your symptoms are serious, or get worse, NHS 111 has an online coronavirus service that can tell you if you need further medical help and advise you what to do.

Only call 111 direct if you cannot go online, or are advised to do so by the online service.

To reduce your chances of catching COVID-19 and reduce pressure on your local GP practice during this busy time, appointments will be carried out over the phone unless there is a clinical need for you to come into the practice. This will help minimise risk while continuing to ensure people get the care and advice they need.
Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact.
A person can also catch the virus by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands. Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict guidelines. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of GP surgeries, pharmacies and hospitals and returned home also in isolation.
Any equipment that comes into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.
Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.
  • Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

Information regarding children's access and Proxy Access:

NHS England recommends that practices adopt a very cautious approach to allowing parents’ access to their child’s medical record once children reach the age of 11, especially in light of the extended access to medical records in 2015. For this reason, the practice has decided to remove access to online services for patients aged between 11 and 15 years old. A young person may decide at a point, once they are mature enough, to request access themselves from the age of 16.

If you wish to register your child for online services York Medical Group does this as proxy access rather than create a child their own username and password. Please click here for a link to the form and be aware this access is removed once the child reaches 11 years old. 

Please also note that:

  • At present, the online booking system does not show the job title of the members of our clinical team. Therefore, you need to be sure that you are booking an appointment with the right person. We do not have control of the online booking/repeat prescription ordering service, as it is a separate web site which integrates with our clinical system, but have asked if it can be amended. We have tried to resolve this issue so the clinicians names should say Doctor for GPs and session types let you know what type of clinican you will be seeing.
  • We apologise for any confusion, and hope that the SystmOne website can be amended soon
  • Only students are allowed to use our York St John University site, so please be aware when booking an appointment online.
