Kirklees COVID-19 Community Response Service
See below for details.
We're working together with our neighbouring practices to bring you more appointments when our surgery is closed.
You can arrange 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.
Most of the care for pregnant women takes place in the surgery with the Community Midwives and GP’s seeing mothers-to-be regularly. Most women will go to the hospital once or twice during their pregnancy. If you agree, it will usually be arranged for you to have your baby in hospital.
Antenatal clinics are held by the midwife on Thursdays and Fridays.
ROUTINE POST-NATAL CHECK UPS
Once you have been discharged from hospital and are at home with your baby, the Doctor will contact you by phone to check that you and baby are both doing well. You will be invited to attend surgery for your post natal examination and your baby’s six week check.
It is very important that all babies are fully immunised. These are carried out by Child Health nurses who hold clinics downstairs in the Health Centre. Reminders will be sent out, after which you can make an appointment with the main Health Centre reception desk.
Advice is given on all standard methods of birth control including pre-conceptual advice and emergency contraception. Appointments can be made with the practice nurse or doctor. Coil and implant fitting can be arranged at the local Contraception and Sexual Health clinic (see numbers).
A smear every three years is recommended for most women between ages 25 and 49 years, and every five years between 50 and 64 years. This can be done by the nurse or doctor. After your first smear you will normally be sent a letter inviting you for subsequent smears.
TEENAGERS AND OUR SURGERY
Although it is preferable to see patients aged under 16 with a parent, we appreciate that there may be times when you will wish to see us on your own. This is fine and you can make an appointment in the normal way through reception. Anything discussed will of course be confidential. Contraception is available for patients under 16. Please see the Doctor.
TRAVEL ADVICE AND VACCINATIONS
If you are planning to travel abroad, especially outside Europe, you may need extra vaccination. The nurse will give advice about necessary immunisations and general, hygiene and health topics. A charge will be made for services not covered by the NHS.
Please aim to contact the surgery at least eight weeks before travelling to allow time for vaccinations to be organised. If you are unable to give enough notice you will be given details of Travel Vaccination Clinics where there will be a charge.
ROUTINE IMMUNISATION FOR ADULTS
We encourage certain patients with chronic diseases to be vaccinated against influenza every year. This is usually available in October by appointment. Please ask at Reception, before October, if you think you should receive a flu vaccine. Other vaccinations are also available. Please discuss with one of the nurses
Various sorts of advice are provided by the Practice Nurses. They are particularly happy to help with advice about healthy eating and stopping smoking. Please contact reception for an appointment.
Certain surgical procedures are performed by Drs Cameron and Majid at the surgery, by prior arrangement. These include the removal of moles, tags and cysts from the skin, and a wide range of joint injections.
We are now able to offer a service to remove sutures and stables and to dress minor wounds. This is by making an appointment in the normal way.
Dr Cameron has an interest in acupuncture and is a member of the British Medical Acupuncture Society. It is offered for a range of medical problems including neck and back pain, and migraine. Simply make a routine appointment with Dr Cameron who will assess whether the treatment might be suitable. Further information about acupuncture can be found at www.medical-acupuncture.co.uk
Blood samples are taken in clinics with our Phlebotomist or Healthcare Assistants, daily before 2.30pm.
In special circumstances you may visit the hospital for a blood test. Please discuss this with a ember of staff.
Results of routine tests and x-rays take 7—10 days to come back (cervical smears may take several weeks) .
You do not need to contact the surgery for your results. If the doctor needs to see you, or you need some medication we will contact you.
A charge is made for services that are outside our 'NHS' work. These include some certificates to cover time off and for financial or insurance purposes.
Also included are passport applications, driving licences, vaccination certificates, and forms authorising private referrals.
We endeavour to complete these within 10 working days. At busy times this might not always be possible, as clinical work has to come first. If you feel you need something more urgently than this, please let us know when making the request.
Medical examinations for special purposes such as elderly drivers, pre-employment, fitness to undertake sports, HGV or PSV drivers are carried out at the surgery by appointment. Fees charged are in line with recommended BMA rates.
Ask at Reception for details.
