Covid Vaccine Appointments

We are currently contacting eligible patients to book them in for their Covid vaccine appointments. You do not need to contact the surgery; we will be in touch with you as soon as you are eligible, and we are able to offer you a vaccine.

If we have booked you in, and you have had your 1st vaccine and are awaiting your 2nd, we will be in touch with you to arrange your 2nd vaccine nearer your due date. You will receive your 2nd vaccine around the 10–12-week mark.

Message to our Patients

Due to the coronavirus outbreak, ways of accessing the surgery have been different. We would like to remind our patients that:

  • Face-to-face appointments are available to all patients, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what would be most appropriate for you.
  • In addition to face-to-face consultations, we are offering consultations online or over the phone.
  • You can also call NHS 111.

Please avoid coming into the surgery unless you have an appointment.

Please note: Our reception staff and administration team are experiencing a high volume of calls and as a result your wait time might be longer than normal.

We are dealing with an unprecedented amount of queries - please consider whether your call to the surgery is absolutely necessary.

Please be assured that all our staff are working extremely hard to maintain service levels.

We thank you for your patience.

Coronavirus - COVID19

Due to the current Coronavirus outbreak please be aware that in the short term requests for any face to face appointments will be a telephone call with either a doctor or a nurse in the first instance. This allows us to triage all patients and adhere to health and safety precautions in place at the surgery.

This means that booking face to face appointments via our online and automated systems have temporarily been disabled, please ring reception to request appointments.

Your visit to the surgery during COVID-19

Covid-19 SecureWhilst we encourage our patients to contact the surgery via telephone in the first instance, and any requests for appointments should always be made this way, we are here to provide medical care which means patients will need to come into the building.

For the safety of our patients and staff we have made some changes in our waiting room. We have the capacity to hold a number of patients (max 12) at any one time whilst still adhering to social distancing guidance. There are clear markers on the floor and chairs have been positioned at a safe distance from each other. In addition to this, a safety screen has been installed on our reception counter and we have upgraded our cleaning schedules by introducing regular sanitisation of the communal areas.

Face Masks - If you have an appointment to see the GP or Nurse in the surgery you must wear a face covering during your appointment. Please remember to bring one with you.

We would like to reassure all our patients, including those who are shielding, that by introducing these measure we can offer you a safe environment to receive the medical care you need.

Please remember – only visit the surgery if your problem cannot be dealt with any other way.

Please help us to help you stay safe.

Go straight to your pharmacy

Barnsley GPs and pharmacies are offering a new service which gives you more choice and easier access when it comes to treating minor illnesses and ailments. The service is called Pharmacyfirst and means that you can get advice and/or medicines for common less serious illnesses from your local pharmacy, without having to make an appointment with your GP.

If you don't normally pay NHS prescription charges, then any medicines supplied under the Pharmacyfirst scheme will be FREE. If you do pay for your prescriptions, then the cost of the medicines should be much less that the prescription charge and you get the same great advice from your pharmacist. Your pharmacist is a qualified health care professional who can help with your health problems. The pharmacist will offer you a private space to talk to you about your symptoms.

The following conditions are currently covered by the scheme: Allergies; Athlete's foot; Blocked nose; Cold sores; Conjunctivitis; Constipation; Cough; Dermatitis; Diarrhoea; Earache; Eczema; Ear wax; Haemorrhoids; Hay fever; Headache; Head lice; Heartburn; Indigestion; Infant colic; Mouth ulcers; Nappy rash; Oral thrush; Pain; Scabies; Sore throat; Teething; Threadworms; Vaginal thrush; Verrucae; Warts.
