Noticeboard

Evening and Weekend Appointments

We're working together with our neighbouring practices to bring you more appointments when our surgery is closed.

From 1st August 2019 you will be able to see a doctor or nurse on weekdays after 6.30pm, and on weekends at Liversedge Health Centre.

If you need an appointment at these times, please tell our receptionist who will be able to arrange the appointment for you. 

New Patient Registrations

On 15th May 2019 the North Kirklees CCG approved our application to temporarily suspend new patient registrations for 6 months. This means that we are no longer registering new patients. Please see the 'New Patients' page for more details.


REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS

We are now live with electronic prescribing - ask at your pharmacy for a nomination form - your prescription can then be sent direct to them to be dispensed.

Please remember to allow 48 hours for your prescription to be processed before collecting.

TEAM TRAINING

The practice closes every 3rd Tuesday afternoon of the month to enable the practice team to train together - please click on the links below to check the dates.

Antibiotic Prescribing

Antibiotics, when used appropriately, can save lives in conditions such as pneumonia and meningitis.

Antibiotics don't, however, work for many common infections, such as colds, coughs and sore throats. Most of these are caused by viruses, which antibiotics do not kill: they only kill bacteria.

Taking antibiotics when they are not necessary can lead to needless side-effects and the development of antibiotic resistance: this means that some antibiotics might not be as effective when they are really needed.

As a practice, we have identified that we are prescribing more antibiotics than the best 25% of practices in the UK. As a result we are all making sure that we only prescribe them when necessary. You may notice that the doctor suggests other ways of managing your problem or gives a prescription to be used later rather than straight away.

Please be reassured that you will receive antibiotics if you really need them.
