Heartbeat Alliance, a group of local GPs working together to make improvements to local health services, say out-of-hours cover has been arranged for patients of practices in Whitby, Danby, Egton and Staithes who require urgent medical attention between these hours.

This can be accessed by calling the usual practice number where you will be re-directed to a call handling service.

They will provide appropriate healthcare advice and be able to direct patients to the most appropriate service for their needs.
