Welcome to the website of South Holderness Medical Practice. The practice provides NHS and some private medical services from three purpose-built surgeries in South East Holderness. The surgeries are located in Withernsea, Patrington and Roos and all have disabled access.
Seven GPs, trainee GPs, 3 Nurse Practioners, a team of nurses, a practice pharmacist and a team of trained dispensers provide the medical services. The doctors are involved in both the Spurn Point and Withernsea lifeboats & have a long tradition of training junior doctors and students. The practice is an active member of the East Riding Clinical Commissioning Group.
This website provides information on the services we offer, online appointment booking, online ordering of repeat medication, how to access to your medical records online , information on additional services that are available locally, health & lifestyle information & the latest news from the surgery.

Announcement – Sexual Health Services
From 1 April 2015 the practice will no longer be able to fit and remove the IUCD (coil) and the Nexplanon implant for contraception. Instead, patients will be referred to Conifer House to receive these services.
This situation has arisen as a direct consequence of the Health Reforms which transferred the responsibility for commissioning of Public Health Services to the local Councils. The revised terms of the contract offered to practices from 1 April 2015 are such that it is unsustainable for us to continue. Quite simply, the cost of providing the service is far greater than the revised terms we have been offered. With great regret, therefore, we have been unable to accept the contract to provide these services in the practice with immediate effect.
This decision has not been taken lightly and has far reaching implications for clinicians as well as for patients. In order to maintain their skills, clinicians must fit a minimum number of devices each year as well as undergoing regular updates and re-validation. These skills will be lost over time as we cease to provide the service.
Patients can still see their GP for sexual health advice and we will continue to discuss all available methods of contraception. Whilst we can continue to provide the oral contraceptive pill, condoms and the 3-monthly depo-provera injection, patients whose preference is for LARC (long acting reversible contraception) will need to attend Conifer House for fitting of coil or implant.
Please note that if you currently have a device fitted, we will no longer be able to remove this and, again, it will necessitate a referral to Conifer House.
