Kirkburton Health Centre
"Our aim is to work in partnership with our patients and staff to provide a safe, effective, caring and responsive service for our community. Taking pride in making a positive difference in people's lives by enhancing the local services made available to them in a well-led, forward-thinking organisation".
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
There is now a drive to reduce unnecessary antibiotic prescribing, consequently we've created a whole page here filled with further information. Here you will find self help guides, videos explaining the role of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance, and why it's important that we all work together to help preserve the antibiotics we have. Also included are links to helpful documents which can be used to help guide you as to whether you need antibiotics.
Visit www.antibioticguardian.com for further information.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
There is good access for the disabled to all of our consultation rooms. A designated parking bay is adjacent to the surgery entrance and the surgery has a ramp and wide doors to allow for wheelchair access.
Friends & Family Test - have your say to improve your healthcare
Did you know you can now have your say to help improve more services across the NHS?
The Friends and Family Test is about giving patients the opportunity to provide feedback on their care and treatment experience. Its already in use in many parts of the NHS and is expanding to a lot more.
You can say what is going well and what can be improved so that people who make decisions about local healthcare can take your views into account.
It doesn't take long and you don't need to give your details on your feedback form.
Look for details in the reception or waiting room. You can ask a member of staff how you can take part or find out more online at www.nhs.uk/friendsandfamily.
You can provide feedback either by paper format available from reception or in the waiting area or via the link on our website site (on the right hand side).
please find below an up to date map of the area covered by our practice, if you live within this area and wish to register at our practice please call or drop in and speak to one of our receptionists. If you live outside this area, but still wish to be registered with us, please call us to discuss. If the interactive map isn't appearing, click here for a photo of our practice area
