We are excited to hear the announcement about the licensing of the Pfizer Covid-19 vaccination. Please bear with us whilst we make the final arrangements for vaccination clinics. The Government will be making recommendations for certain patients to be prioritised for vaccination first. We will be in touch with patients when we are ready to invite them for their vaccination.

FLU VACCINATIONS - new 50-64 year old cohort

If you are aged between 50 and 64years and have no underlying health conditions you are now eligible for a free flu vaccination from 1st December 2020. We have sent text messages to all of our eligible patients to ask if they want the vaccine - please help us to plan our vaccine stock by replying to the message. If you haven't received a text, contact our reception team.


Evening and Weekend Appointments

April 2020 - Please note these appointments are temporarily being offered at Dewsbury Health Centre.

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. 

Care Data

your care dataInformation about you and the care you receive is shared, in a secure system, by healthcare staff to support your treatment and care.

It is important that we, the NHS, can use this information to plan and improve services for all patients. We would like to link information from all the different places where you receive care, such as your GP, hospital and community service, to help us provide a full picture. This will allow us to compare the care you received in one area against the care you received in another, so we can see what has worked best.

Information such as your postcode and NHS number, but not your name, will be used to link your records in a secure system, so your identity is protected. Information which does not reveal your identity can then be used by others, such as researchers and those planning health services, to make sure we provide the best care possible for everyone.

You have a choice. If you are happy for your information to be used in this way you do not have to do anything. If you have any concerns or wish to prevent this from happening, please speak to practice staff or download the opt out form below, complete it and return it to the practice

We need to make sure that you know this is happening and the choices you have.
