How to Access Services at The Grange
Urgent Omicron COVID Update-
Please do not attend the surgery unless you have an appointment. The practice has been asked to prioritise COVID-19 vaccinations. Due to this, non-urgent appointments may need to be postponed. You will be contacted if your appointment is affected.
The surgery is still open, but due to the coronavirus pandemic, the way you contact the practice will be different at the moment.
Please don't come to the surgery unless you need to do so, for example to attend an appointment, drop off a sample or fill out a registration form. This is so that we can safely manage the number of people in our practice.
Please read the sections below for information on how you can best access our services:
Accessing Medical Attention
If you would like to speak to a clinician about a new or ongoing medical problem, please click here to complete an eConsult. Please note 16 and 17 year-olds can now fill out the adult eConsult form. The eConsult service is available during core practice hours (8am - 6pm) out of hour GP services are available outside of these times, and can be accessed via 111 online or by phoning 111. For an emergency, please attend A&E or phone 999.
Once we have received your eConsult you will be booked in and sent details of when you can expect a telephone appointment. We try to book patients in as soon as possible but will continue to book appointments based on clinical need and urgency. We will contact you by the end of the next working day.
Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients where there is a clinical need. You will first be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone with a member of the clinical team to assess what would be most appropriate for you and which member of the team can best provide it.
Patients who are unable or choose not to use the eConsult services can phone the practice. A member of admin will be happy to fill out a questionnaire and book an appointment. Please note that patients who are booked over the phone rather than by eConsult will not be booked in any sooner unless there is an urgent clinical need.
You can also access same-day medical attention by attending the nearest walk-in centre in Dewsbury, this is a sit and wait to be seen service which is open 9am until 8pm on weekdays, and 10am until 6pm on weekends and bank holidays. For more information, please visit their website.
If you need to book another type of appointment such as for an injection or a blood pressure check, please fill in an eConsult and select the administrative help option, or phone the practice on 01484 428282 and a member of admin will arrange this for you.
If you need to order a prescription, please click here to use online services or use the NHS app to request your prescription, and it will be sent to your nominated pharmacy. Please allow at least 2 working days for your request to be processed.
If you'd like to sign up for online services, please phone the practice on 01484 428282.
Patients who are unable to request their prescription online can fill out a request form outside the practice and post it through the letterbox. Requests for housebound patients can be taken over the phone if needed.
Administrative Queries and Reception Services
