Online Appointment Booking Update from 1st April 2022

The government are increasing the requirement for GP practices to offer appointments that are bookable online. We have had this facility for some time but are being asked to increase the proportion that are available for online booking.  

We will increase this gradually to try to keep access to appointments fair. We will start to phase in appointments that are available to be booked on the day online from 08.30am, when the phone lines open. The eventual goal will be to have appointments that are available to be booked either by phone, online or in person that open at the same time in the morning. You will need to state whether you wish this to be a telephone consultation or whether you will be attending surgery.

We encourage you to get set up for online access to appointments so that you will be able to make use of this service.

This can be done by contacting reception

We recognise that some people will not be able to use this system, but they are able to ask someone else to do so on their behalf, and we will always have the phone lines open in tandem with online booking.

For the safety of yourself and other patients, we ask that you continue to wear a face mask in the waiting room and throughout your time in the building.

Open Letter to Sheffield Residents on behalf of CCG

You may have struggled to get in touch with your GP practice recently or had to wait for an appointment.

We understand that this can be frustrating, especially if you are feeling ill. This has sometimes led to the misperception that practices are not seeing many patients.

We want to reassure you that practices are doing all they can to get through to and see as many patients as possible. 

NHS Sheffield CCG have written an open letter to all residents to let you know about the challenges facing GP's in Sheffield and what you can do to help us, help you.

Hillsborough Network

Dykes Hall Medical Centre are very excited to announce that  we have collaborated with our neighbouring Hillsborough Practices; Far Lane Medical Centre, Tramways Milner and Tramways Bradley, to form the Hillsborough Network.

We will continue to operate as four separate GP practices in the main but will come together when we feel working at scale will benefit our patients. We would like to welcome on board our new in house Physiotherapist and Social Prescriber to the team.  We feel these new services will benefit our patients throughout Hillsborough.
