Welcome to The White Rose Surgery

We hope you find this website both useful and informative and welcome any comments or suggestions about this website, or how it may be improved.

 

TODAYS NEWS - 17.03.2020

We would like to thank you for your co-operation, patience and understanding with regards to the changes we have had to implement at the Surgery in order to protect people’s health.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE - Could we kindly ask that you do not attend the Surgery unless you've been specifically invited by a GP/Nurse. We are still having lots of patients entering the Surgery, mainly to request medication. This can be done by email, NHS App or via the telephone (temporary basis).

It would be really helpful if this message could be passed onto relatives, friends & family.

Thank you

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

Stay at home if you have coronavirus symptoms

Stay at home if you have either:

  • a high temperature – you feel hot to touch on your chest or back

Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're staying at home.

Testing for coronavirus is not needed if you're staying at home.

Read the NHS advice about staying home, including how long to isolate for.

Please wash your hands with warm water and soap regularly.

The following appointments will still be going ahead for the time being and maybe subject to change, and as long as you are not displaying any symptoms.

Changes to Prescription Products & Services

We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically.  We would encourage all of our patients to have a nominated Pharmacy added to your medical records.  This will ensure that the prescription is sent electronically to the correct Pharmacy for your to collect of your medication.  If you do not have a nominated Pharmacy, you will be given a token instead of a prescription.  The token can be taken to any Pharmacy, who will then scan this and be able to issue you with the correct medication.


Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.

Evening and Weekend GP Appointments

GP practices across Wakefield are now offering weekend and evening appointments.

The new GP Care Wakefield scheme enables patients across the district to have access to GP support after normal opening hours.

This enables patients to have access to medical advice and, if required, access to a Wakefield GP appointment, through their normal GP practice telephone number between:

18:00 and 22:00hrs Monday to Friday

and from 09.00: to 15.00hrs Saturday and Bank Holidays

Patients who use the service will be provided with medical advice from a dedicated nursing team, who can then refer them to a GP appointment that day, if required, at one of two sites across the district.
