Dr Glencross performs minor surgery under local anaesthetic including removal of lumps and bumps and joint injections. Please book initially with the Doctor for review.
Our Local Community Midwife, Linzi, holds a clinic here on a Wednesday morning. Please call us to book an appointment. To contact the midwife at other times please call 01484 355743.
We provide a whole variety of tests at the surgery upon request (urine, blood, faeces, sputum, nail cuttings, skin scrapings, swabs etc)
We provide a phlebotomy (blood sample) service via the Healthcare Assitant and Practice Nurses at the surgery every morning. They are also able to perform blood or urine pregnancy tests at the surgery or can provide you with a kit to perform in your own home if you prefer.
The GP also performs DNA Tests for private patients at the surgery va a mouth swab - there is a charge for this service and it is normally organised via a solicitor or social services.
We have a daily collection for samples at lunchtime so the majority of samples need to be returned to the surgery or taken at the surgery before 12noon as they will not keep until the following day. We provide a cage on both letterboxes so that samples can be posted in the appropriate tighly closed containers even when we are closed. Please ensure the specimin labels are completed with your name and date of birth.
If you are asked to fast for a blood test, this means you should have nothing to eat or drink but water for the 12 hours prior to your test.
Please ensure the correct sample bottle is used if you are asked to provide a sample for testing. No matter how well you wash out a container it will lead to contamination which may mean the test will have to be repeated which delays the results for you and your doctor.
Please access your test results online here or call after 11am to enquire about your test results as our reception staff will have more time to deal with your request.
We have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and will only release test results to the person to whom they relate unless that person has given prior permission for the release of this data or they are not capable of understanding the results. This is at the GP's discretion.
When you take your test you will be told how long it will be before the results are returned to the practice. It is your responsibility to check your results and to make an appointment with your doctor if you are advised to do so.
If you need help understanding your test results please go to labtestsonline.org.uk
You are a carer if…
• you look after someone who is ill, disabled, elderly or frail, and this person depends on you for their needs, care and support
• the help and support you give is unpaid.
Many people are carers without even knowing it. Once you realise that you are a carer you could get the support and information you are entitled to. This could include practical or emotional support, or help to claim suitable benefits.
Sheena has now become our Carer's Champion and will be promoting Carer identification & support in the practice. Her first act as champion has been to create a Carer's Support Noticeboard in the ground floor waiting room. Please check out the board on your next visit to the surgery. We have added some links below for information we hope you will find useful.

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 for the website or see graphic below.
The Herbert Protocol is a national scheme being introduced by West Yorkshire Police and other agencies which encourages carers to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a vulnerable person going missing.
Carers, family members and friends can complete in advance, a form recording all vital details, such as medication required, mobile numbers, places previously located, a photograph etc. In the event of your family member or friend going missing, the form can be easily sent or handed to the police to reduce the time taken in gathering this information.
The Herbert Protocol initiative is named after George Herbert, a War veteran of the Normandy landings, who lived with dementia. You can access the form here.
