Following the latest Government guidance the surgery is still open. Please continue to contact us as normal. Access to the surgery is by appointment only following triage by a clinician. This will minimise the spread of infection and keep patients and staff safe. Please do not attend the practice unless you are asked to do so.
Advice for parents of sick or injured children
Whilst it is extremely important to follow Government advice to stay at home during this period, it can be confusing to know what to do when your child is unwell or injured. Please visit this page with advice for concerned parents
Help stop coronavirus spreading
- if you have symptoms of coronavirus, you'll need to stay at home for 7 days
- if you live with someone who has symptoms, you'll need to stay at home for 14 days from the day the first person in the home started having symptoms
The symptoms of coronavirus are: 1) a cough, 2) a high temperature and 3) shortness of breath, but these symptoms do not necessarily mean you have the illness as the symptoms are similar to other illnesses that are much more common, such as the common cold and flu.
There are things you can do to help the Coronavirus spreading:
DO Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze
- DO Put used tissues in the bin immediately
- DO Wash your hands with soap and hot water often. Use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available
- DO avoid close contact with people who are unwell
- DO NOT touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

Covid 19 Vaccination Programme
The first phase of the NHS Covid-19 vaccination programme has now started. When it is the right time people will receive an invitation to come forward to make an appointment. For most people this will be a letter, please do not call the surgery to make an appointment until you receive this letter. Information on the vaccine is available on the NHS.UK website.
Based in Scissett, Huddersfield, we are a small and approachable practice offering you a personal and friendly service for your medical needs. We offer a good range of services and continuity of care for our patients. The practice is based in modern, purpose-built premises with free parking. The surgery has disabled access.
If you have registered for online services then you can book and cancel GP and Nurse appointments, order repeat prescriptions, update your personal details and send us secure messages online.
Do not use the secure messaging service to send us medical information please. Remember prescription requests take at least 48 hours to process. If you are cancelling an appointment please do so in good time.
All appointment requests are being triaged on the phone by a clinician who will decide if a face to face appointment is necessary or can be mitigated by a telephone consultation due to the Coronavirus outbreak. Please do not visit the practice without an appointment
URGENT appointments can be booked on the day, however, doctors’ appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance.
