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.

Flu Clinics

Flu clinics will be different this year but they will be safe

Please do not attend if you feel unwell or you have a temperature, new persistent cough, flu like symptoms or new loss of sense of smell or taste.  You should book a Covid test if you have symptoms (via the NHS website or by calling 119)

The next flu clinic for over 65's  will be held on Saturday 19 September 8.00am - 4.00pm at Skelmanthorpe, further clinics will be held on 23 and 30 September 12.30pm - 2.00pm

If you are under 65 and eligible for a flu vaccination a clinic will be held on Tuesday 6 October and Wednesday 7 October 7.00am - 8.00am   Further clinics will be added soon

How you can help:

Book your appointment in advance by telephone

Wear a face covering

Wear loose clothing to allow quick access to your arm

Arrive on time - not earlier or later

Do not attend if unwell

Attend alone, unless you need a Carer

Don't drive if you can avoid it

If raining please bring an umbrella in case you might be required to wait outside.  Whilst there will be some indoor queuing space, with social distancing tyhe queues my stretch out onto the paths.

Please use the toilet at home before you set off.  Toilets will be unavailable

What changes will you see:

As in previous years we will be operating a one way system through the building and spaced out appointment times in order to maintain 2 metre social distancing.

Staff will be wearing full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE - face masks, shields, etc) at all times , and guiding patients on where to go

You will see markings on the floor which indicate where to wait, moving forward only when the next mark in front of you becomes free

Change of PPE and handwashing undertaken at regular intervals in line with the latest in line with the latest Infection Control Guidelines

Hand sanitiser will be available for everyone

there will be plenty of staff available on the day to assist you, so please do not hesitate to ask if you need help in any way

Flu vaccinations for 50-64 year olds or shielded

This year people living with someone who is on the NHS shielded patient list will also be eligible for a flu vaccine.  There are also plans for the flu vaccine to be given to people aged 50 to 64 and the government will provide more information on this later in the year.  We will be in touch when this happens


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

Covid-19 Update

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

Named GP

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.

Carers Champions

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.
