Based in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire near the town centre, this surgery provides high quality healthcare service to patients in the area. Our building is on the corner of Fitzwilliam St and Wentworth Street with the main entrance on Wentworth Street with ramp access.
We have excellent public transport links and offer on street parking on the surrounding roads. Please watch out for 'permit only' parking sections we have very keen traffic wardens.
Our doctors, nurses and all our other staff are dedicated to offering a professional but friendly service and we offer a mix of skills to ensure our patient see the right clinician for the right treatment whilst also offering patients a choice of clinician.
We pride ourselves on providing timely access to our clinicians with same or next day appointments offered as standard to see our GPs and Advanced Nurse Practitioners. Telephone consultations are also offered to help those who cannot get to the surgery during working hours and home visits for those patients who are clinically unable to access the surgery due to the severity of their condition.
We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations, contraception and STD testing, as well as well-person check-ups.
We also provide some private (non NHS) services such as DNA testing, Occupational Health, Travel & Chicken Pox vaccinations, plus HGV, PSV and other medical examinations, all at reasonable cost to both registered and non-registered patients.

All of our patients are allocated to an accountable GP within 21 days of registering and informed of this in person or in writing whichever can be done soonest. As we only have one permanent GP, Dr Glencross, this is the clinician our patients are allocated to. This does not mean that you cannot see any of our other clinicians, it just means that Dr Glencross has overall responsibility for the care you receive from his practice team.
We were inspected by the CQC on Thursday 7th July and rated GOOD. The full report is available to read here.

A Safe Place
In August 2014 we were trained to become a Safe Place under Mencap Kirklees' Safer Places Scheme for vulnerable people. This means that we provide a safe haven for people to turn to should they need support for any reason such as losing a purse/bus pass, becoming disorientated/lost or being the victim of a crime. This means we are ready and willing to provide assistance to a vulnerable person should they need it. We display our Safe Places sign in the window which matches the picture on the members cards. For more information on this scheme please click here
Dignity in Care
We have signed up to The 10-Point Dignity Challenge showing our commitment for promoting Dignity in Care for all our patients, visitors and staff. The campaign's core values are about having dignity in our hearts minds and actions, changing the culture of care services and placing a greater emphasis on improving the quality of care and the experience of citizens using services including NHS hospitals, community services, care homes and home support services.
