Patient Reference Group  


Are you interested in finding out how to get involved in your practice?


        If you would like to just call in to one of our patient reference group meetings and see what happens, you will be made very welcome.


The next meeting is on Tuesday 21st July 2015

from 12 until around 2pm held at

The Grange Medical Centre,

Highfield Road





The practice is committed to delivering a service of the highest standard to all of our patients. We place a great deal of emphasis on good communication, effective treatments and continuous professional development to enable us to meet the needs of our patients.


The practice has been in existence for over 100 years and was carried out from three surgeries in Hemsworth. The practice buildings were wooden huts until 1967 when a purpose-built surgery was built in Highfield Road, Hemsworth. We soon outgrew this building and moved to our current site in 1980. The surgery was extended in 1993 to provide additional patient care facilities, a larger waiting room and more office space. In March 1996 our new therapy unit was opened, providing dedicated facilities for physiotherapy, including exercise equipment, heat therapy and hydrotherapy. The new two-storey building also accommodates our practice and community nurses, and provides facilities for staff training and seminars.

In May 2001, a new purpose-built surgery was completed at Kinsley, providing much needed extra space and state-of-the-art facilities.

On 1st August 2003, the Grange Medical Centre and Highfield Road Surgery merged as one practice.

On 1st July 2006 The Grange Medical Centre merged with the Greenview Medical centre at Upton.

Further refurbishment took place at Hemsworth during 2012 / 2013 and included the provision of improved theatre facilities and a purpose-built Endoscopy Unit.


The practice has robust policies in place for infection prevention and control. This includes policies on hand washing, cleaning of the surgery sites and correct disposal of waste in line with current guidelines.

We would ask that you use the hand gel dispensers that are available in the entrance areas of the 3 surgery sites and also make use of the waste bins provided for any rubbish you may wish to dispose of.


The practice operates a no smoking policy and we kindly ask patients to refrain from smoking in practice buildings and within the grounds.

It is essential to maintain a high standard of hygiene on the premises and your assistance with this would be appreciated.


The practice accepts new patients from the following areas: Hemsworth, Kinsley, Fitzwilliam, South Kirkby, South Hiendley, Upton or South Elmsall.
Please refer to the map page on this web site. To register as a patient please ask at reception.


We are committed to 'Wakefield's Breastfeeding Welcome Scheme' so if you require breastfeeding facilities whilst visiting any of our surgery sites please ask at reception.


Patient and public areas are situated at ground level at all three surgery sites, therefore providing suitable disabled access. Toilet facilities for the disabled are available at all surgery sites. There is also a lift at The Grange Medical Centre main building and Kinsley Medical Centre to enable disabled patients access to the first floor areas should this be required.


Parking is available at all three surgery sites with designated spaces for disabled parking. The Hemsworth site can on occasions be extremely busy, therefore we kindly ask that the car park be used only if necessary, in order to avoid congestion and to allow ambulance access when required.

Our PRG is drawn from a successful group of supportive members who meet on a monthly basis. The members work with the practice to offer a patient perspective on the services that we provide. The patient group also helps to improve communication, encourages patients to take more responsibility for their health and helps to provide practical support and help to implement change.

Information relating to the group can be found in folders located in each of the waiting areas at each surgery site, giving details of when meetings are held, minutes of meetings and how to join. You can also click on the link top left for the latest news.

New members are welcome to join the group at any time - please leave your name and contact details at reception and we will be in touch or alternatively, contact the Practice Manager on 01977 610009, option 4.
