Welcome to our website – “a good old fashioned practice"
We aim to provide a high standard of medical care in a friendly and professional manner. The practice area lies to the east of Wakefield and centres on the ex-mining villages of Crofton with Foulby, Nostell and Wragby and Sharlston with New Sharlston and Streethouse. It includes the Heath Common, Warmfield and has traditional links to Walton, Sandal and Agbrigg.
It is bounded to the west by the City of Wakefield, to the north by the River Calder and Normanton to the east by Featherstone and Ackworth and to the south by Havercroft and Haw Park. As well as the core villages it covers a large tract of farms and countryside and includes Nostell Priory Estate, Walton Hall and Anglers Country Park.

The majority of our staff have undergone training to become a dementia friendly practice to help make visiting the practice an easier experience for those patients suffering with dementia.
Our building(s) were the first in the area, to trial the suggested risk assessment tool kit based specifically for GP practices and were able to work with our council and public health colleagues in making the building risk assessment tool, fit for purpose.

Like To Register?
With reluctance, the Practice has formally closed its patient registration list. This means we will not be registering new patients until the end of November 2018, although if we feel we are in a position to reopen earlier, we will apply to NHS England and the CCG group to request this.
We would like to reassure you that we are doing this on “reasonable and non-discriminatory grounds”, in order to protect the quality of patient services we offer to our current existing patients.
We currently have approx. 10,500 patients and 4.5 GPs giving us a current ratio of Doctor / Patient of 2,333, which will reduce shortly to 4 - increasing our ratio to 2625 patients to each GP. This is much higher than the national recommendations
We will still continue to allow new births of existing families to register, to keep families together. The same will apply should existing patients inform us that they will be looking after foster children, or adoptions etc. Students returning home from college and moving back into their family home will also be accepted, which living in our area.
We will of course also continue to accept patients who have been removed from a practice list but need to be allocated to a GP and live within our catchment area.
To find alternative practices, please check one of the following:-
NHS Choices website - www.nhs.uk/findservices
PALS - Patient, Advice and Liaison Service (PALS). Telephone: 0800 0525 270 (Mon – Fri: 8.30am to 4.30pm)
Or by word of mouth - (friends, family, work colleagues and neighbours) as not everyone living near us is registered with us and may have experience of other surgeries locally.
If you would like to leave your name and contact number with us - when we re-open our informally closed list we can contact you and should you choose to join us you would be welcome. Please be aware however, that this is not a waiting list and we do recommend you register with a GP as soon as you are able, preferably before you require to be seen, to allow the practice of your choice, apply for your clinical records.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you but thank you for your understanding.
