We are closed once a month on a Tuesday afternoon for in-house staff training. A notice is always placed on the main entrance a few days before to advise patients.
Out of hours services
Each day - Monday to Friday the phone lines close at 6pm. Dial the usual surgery number 01924 403061 and listen carefully to the instructions.
If you need to see a GP at the weekends for:
- Urgent Medical Treatment
- Urgent Medication
- Urgent Medical Advice
On Saturday and Sunday mornings from the 18th October until the 12th April 2015, please call 01924 351499 between 8am and 11.30am. Your call will be triaged by a Doctor or Nurse Practitioner and, if clinically appropriate, an appointment to see a GP in one of five local Health Centres situated across North Kirklees will be offered.
At other times during weekends please call 111.
111 will get you through to a team of fully trained call advisers who are supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms and give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the right local service. If they think you need an ambulance one will be sent just as quickly if you had dialled 999.
They can advise you whether you need to go to the nearest A&E (Accident and Emergency) or if there is an alternative such as visiting an NHS Walk-In centre. The nearest NHS Walk-In centre is located in A&E at Dewsbury Hospital.
Walk-In services can provide:
- urgent initial treatment for emergencies such as suspected meningitis, asthma attacks and airway obstruction
- treatment for minor injuries and illnesses such as cuts and wounds, sore throats, bites or stings, rashes and allergic reactions, coughs and colds, muscle or joint injuries, earache, eye injuries and infections
- emergency contraception.
Walk-In services can not provide repeat prescriptions (without the approval of your registered GP unless in an emergency) medical certificates or Accident and Emergency.
If you experience severe chest pain, loss of consciousness or suspected broken bones go to your nearest A&E department or call 999.
Please be aware that if you cannot order an item on your repeat list because your medication review is due you may not need a GP appointment. Please contact the surgery and the receptionist will confirm with the GP whether or not an appointment is necessary.
