Doctors' Surgery

There is a Doctors' Surgery at Aysgarth on the A684 on the left between the Aysgarth Falls Hotel and Aysgarth village. This is part of the Central Dales Practice. New residents are encouraged to register as soon as possible so that if you need to see a doctor he/she is able to access your medical records. Patient registration also helps sustain two surgeries in a deeply rural area.
