Like all GP practices in Wakefield, we are still here to help. Throughout the COVID19 pandemic we have changed the way we work to ensure we are able to treat you, our registered patients, safely.
We still prefer that initially you make contact via telephone or the practice website, if that is possible for you, so we can manage the number of people attending the practice at any one time. We understand that phone lines do get particularly busy on occasion and that this can be frustrating, so please bear with us and treat staff with courtesy and kindness.
Once we are in touch with you, we will assess your problem and decide if you need an appointment. This may be arranged to be face to face, over the telephone or via video.
We understand that some people prefer the convenience of remote consultations – such as not having to travel or arrange time off work. We will, though, always take into account your personal preferences and you will always be seen face to face where there is the clinical need for an in-person consultation.
As well as GPs, practices also have a range of other staff who may be able to help so you may also be given an appointment with another member of the primary care team or even signposted to a different service altogether which isn’t provided by the practice.
If you have a problem, please don’t put it off or hesitate to contact us; We are still here to help.
Thank you for your ongoing support and patience as we play our part in the healthcare system’s recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.
In line with current Government guidance patients are required to continue to wear a face covering in all healthcare settings. Face coverings primarily protect others, so doing so - unless exempt - is key to preventing spread of infection. We also ask that you continue to respect 2m social distancing rules and sanitise your hands upon entry and when required whilst in healthcare settings.

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 1979. The surgery was extended in 1993 to provide additional patient care facilities, a larger waiting room and increased office space. In March 1996, our therapy unit was opened; a new two-storey building which accommodates the community nursing team as well as providing facilities for staff training and seminars. The therapy unit also houses a fully functioning level 3 theatre facility, where vasectomy, general and vascular surgical procedures are delivered by visiting consultants. Further building work was completed to our purpose built endoscopy unit, which stands to the rear of the main building, in the summer of 2012.
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.
Infection Prevention And Control
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.

No Smoking Policy
The practice operates a no smoking policy; we kindly ask patients to refrain from smoking in practice buildings and within the grounds. The use of e-cigarettes is also forbidden.
It is essential to maintain a high standard of hygiene on the premises and your assistance with this would be appreciated.
