Welcome to Howden Medical Centre.

We are a GP surgery located in the historic town of Howden in the East Riding of Yorkshire. Our modern health centre can be found in Pinfold Lane DN14 7DD. These website pages provide details of the services on offer at the practice. You will also find a wealth of health information from local, regional and national sources.

We are here to help and new patients are welcome.

Howden Medical Centre advises patients that following updated national guidance, all patients attending the surgery with new respiratory symptoms must still wear a facemask.  

All other patients are now not required to wear a facemask, however, you may still do so if this is a personal preference.

Facemask wearing may be reinstated in the future if required and advised in line with national guidance or local outbreaks of COVID-19.

My Planned Care is a national digital platform which hosts average waiting time
information for the 137 NHS acute providers across England.

This site is updated weekly and can be viewed by anyone, which means you, your family or carer as well as your NHS team can all see the latest information, no login or registration required.

My Planned Care has two key elements:

- Average waiting time information by specialty

- Access to information to support patients’ physical and mental health and wellbeing while they wait

My Planned Care gives you advice and support while you wait and helps you to prepare for your hospital consultation, treatment, or surgery. This includes giving you
information about waiting times at your hospital and other supporting and local services.

At the current time, the waiting times shown on the My Planned Care digital platform are averages for all procedures across a particular specialty. Urgent cases will
continue to be prioritised.

Your hospital team will be in touch with you as soon as they can. If you are looking
for an update, please check this website before contacting your hospital or GP.

Dementia Friends is an Alzheimer’s Society initiative that sets out to change people’s perceptions of dementia. It aims to transform the way the nation thinks, acts, and talks about the condition. Howden Medical Centre is proud to be a supporter of this campaign. We are committed to working with the Alzheimer’s Society to make improvements, where this is appropriate and possible, to our systems, cultures, diagnosis and care and our physical environment.

We will continue to make positive changes to improve our accessibility for patients with dementia and would be happy to hear from you if you have any suggestions. Please get in touch with the practice manager if there is anything we can do to make your visits to us easier.

If you care for someone with dementia it is important for you to have access to information and support as well. Please ensure the practice knows that you are a carer.

 The UK Health Security Agency has confirmed that cases of monkeypox have increased recently but the risk to the UK population remains low.

Anyone can get monkeypox. Currently most cases have been in men who are gay, bisexual or have sex with men, so it's particularly important to be aware of the symptoms if you're in these groups.

Contact a sexual health clinic if you have a rash with blisters and either:

+ you've been in close contact, including sexual contact, with someone who has or might have monkeypox (even if they've not been tested yet) in the past 3 weeks

+ you've been to west or central Africa in the past 3 weeks

If you have an unexplained rash, please contact NHS111 or phone the practice to make an appointment.

Further public information is available - see below.
