Welcome to Skelmanthorpe Family Doctors
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.
Wearing Face Masks
We are asking all patients to wear face masks when they come into the surgery. For further information and guidance regarding the use of face masks please follow the link below
Due to the current epidemic we are not accepting online bookings for appointments. Please complete an E-Consultation form and submit online. We will respond to you by no later than the end of the next working day. Alternatively please contact the Surgery by telephone
New Opening Hours - Extended Access
From April 2018 we will be extending our service. In addition to the early morning hours that we currently provide on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings we will also be providing evening appointments from 6.30pm - 8.30pm on Wednesday evenings at our Denby Dale Surgery. These will be a mixture of telephone, on the day and pre-bookable appointments. Clink the link above to check availability and book an appointment today. We hope that this will help to improve access to our service, especially for those who have difficulty attending appointments during the working day.
Please note that all incoming and outgoing calls to and from the practice are recorded for training and monitoring purposes
The Partners and the team at Skelmanthorpe Health Centre are proud that following our CQC inspection in September 2016 the practice was rated as "Good".
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.
We hope you enjoy having a look around the site and familiarising yourself with some of the online features such as ordering a repeat prescription. Whatever your thoughts, be sure to let us know via our feedback function. Comments and suggestions are always a great way of helping us continue to enhance the way we look after you.
All patients at Skelmanthorpe Family Doctorshave a named, accountable GP who is responsible for coordinating their care. Your named GP will be allocated to you by the practice. You can still make appointments to see any GP or Nurse of your choice, not just your named GP. If you wish to know who your allocated GP is, then please call the practice and a member of our Reception Team will be able to advise you. If you have a preference and would like to request a particular doctor at the practice to be your named GP please inform one of our Reception Team.
We keep a register of patients, who, without payment, provide help and support to a family member, friend or neighbour who cannot manage on their own due to physical or mental illness, disability, substance misuse or frailty brought on by old age. People who care for someone in these circumstances, without pay, are considered to be 'carers'.
We have two Carer's Champions at the Practice, Liz and Sally and who can help provide you with relevant information, resources and contact points. We have a dedicated notice board where up to date information is displayed in the practice. Please visit our Carers page for more information.
Skelmanthorpe Health Centre and Denby Dale Surgery have disabled access and toilet facilities. Skelmanthorpe Health Centre has a car park.
Mentoring & Research
The Practice participates in the mentoring of Health Care Professionals and is engaged from time to time in clinical research. Patient consent is sought prior to any research activities been undertaken.
The Doctors at Skelmanthorpe Family Doctors practice together as a non-limited Partnership.
