The Romans brought medicine to Market Weighton in about AD 70. Things then went a little bit quiet for a couple of thousand years (give or take the odd Viking invasion) until a doctor set up shop in Londesborough Road in the 1840s.
The first recognisable roots of the current Market Weighton practice began with Dr R. Ashwin in the second decade of the 20th century.
The practice moved to its next site on Londesborough Road in 1964. The health centre as it then was had been extended so many times that it was unrecognisable and went on to include the existing next door property as well.
On 6th October 2014 the practice moved to its current site, Wolds House, situated on Medforth Street. Wolds House is a modern, purpose-built health centre.
In 1994 the practice had 6,645 patients. The number of patients has risen gradually over the last 21 years to its present size of 9,367 patients. Our aim is to provide a good quality services and health care to our patients. We believe that this is best achieved in partnership with our patients.
In order to keep the premises clean and comfortable, we would ask that you avoid attending surgery in very dirty footwear or dirty working clothes.
All our patient areas are accessible to wheelchairs and as well as disabled facilities we have a baby changing facility and a baby feeding room.
Throughout this website you will find advice on how best to use the available services, as well as finding information on other health resources and guidance on prevention, screening and treatment.
