In light of the recent Government announcement encouraging people to wear facemasks/cover when in public places, we are asking that any patient who is invited to attend the Practice, attends wearing a facemask/cover please. Thank you for your co-operation.
COVID19 is unlikely to cause a serious illness in children, but please remember children can still become seriously unwell from other causes that are always around. Please do not let concerns over COVID19 stop you from contacting medical services. If you are not sure if your child needs to be seen please visit the Healthier Together website for advice or contact 111 or your GP. You can also visit the Healthier Together website for information about crying babies. If your child is severely unwell call 999 or go to ED.
Do you need non-medical support during the current COVID-19 Outbreak?
Live Well Wakefield is a social prescribing service that links adult 18+, registered with a Wakefield GP - like ours, with non-medical support in the local area.
During the current COVID-19 outbreak they’re still accepting social prescribing referrals and are also encouraging referrals from our vulnerable patients who are self-isolating and have no support to access shopping, medication delivery and/or befriending support. They can also support you with information on up to date safety advice and help you to access additional support services as appropriate during this time.
Information on their standard service and what ‘Social Prescribing’ is, can be found on their website: Live Well Wakefield (click on the topic boxes).
At present Live Well Wakefield is unable to offer face to face appointments but all assessments will be completed over phone/email or with a family member if appropriate to ensure they can continue to support all.
To refer yourself – complete their online form Live Well Wakefield - Referrals, call them on 01924 255363 and follow instructions on the answer machine message, or message them on Facebook @LiveWellWakefield

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.
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.
