Noticeboard

Monday 16th July

We are currently short staffed any regrettably only able to deal with urgent medical problems today. If your problem is not urgent please consider visiting the pharmacy or the Walk-in Centre at Dewsbury Hospital. We apologise for any inconvenience.

Telephone Lines - Update 16.07.18

We are aware of a number of on-going problems with our new telephone system, and have issued our telephone provider with a number of changes to be made which should alleviate many of the issues. We apologise that these problems have not been resolved sooner and hope that phones will be working better very soon. Thank you for you patience and co-operation.

If you are calling for anything non-urgent such as results, prescription queries or a routine appointment with a nurse or healthcare assistant, please telephone us after 11am to help ease congestion early in the morning.

***NEW TELEPHONE NUMBER***

Please be aware that we have recently changed our main telephone number. Please make sure you save this number for future reference: 01274 399505. Calls to the old number will be diverted.


Ordering Prescriptions

From 1st April 2016, please allow 48 hours before collecting your prescription.

Telephoning the Surgery

We have changed the way that your call is handled by our automated system. When you telephone the surgery you will now be given 4 options. Please listen carefully and select the option most suitable to your enquiry. We hope that this will make it easier for patients to contact the surgery when they need to, and welcome feedback on the system.
