Harrogate District Hospital is experiencing unprecedented high levels of admissions and would ask members of the public to only use the A&E Department if emergency medical attention is needed. We would always encourage the public to consider using other services that are available to ensure that patients with emergency conditions can be seen as soon as possible. 


For patients with non-emergency symptoms please visit your community Pharmacist for advice or look online for advice at  


If you feel you need medical attention but are unsure where to turn, please contact NHS 111. If you feel that you do need to see a clinician, please consider ringing your GP practice to book an appointment with them or request an appointment at the extended hours Primary Care Hubs in Harrogate (and Ripon if you are a Ripon patient) which are open on Saturday morning. NHS 111 is still available when the practice is closed if you feel you need out of hours non-emergency medical help and advice.


Online test results

Penguin using a computer

From April 2016 it will be possible to view online the results of tests requested by GPs or practice nurses.

Results will be visible only when they have been seen by one of the doctors. The doctor will write a comment to explain the significance of the result. We will try to make these comments helpful and self-explanatory, and if any results require further actions you will be notified by phone or letter. We will not rely on patients seeing their results online unless this has been specifically agreed with you in advance.

The requirement to make results available online is a government initiative. We hope that it is useful but we have not received any additional resources to support this as an extra service.

We will make an explanation of common comments available here, and in-depth information is available at LabTestsOnline. We cannot provide a service to discuss the details of your results in person except where there is a clinical need to do so.
