The Primary Care Saturday Service is provided for patients of Colton Mill/The Grange Medical Centre, Garforth Medical Practice and Moorfield House Surgery. Saturday morning clinics will be working from Colton Mill Medical Centre and Garforth Medical Centre on alternate Saturdays between 8am and 11.30am.
Patients aged between 60 and 74 are sent a bowel screening kit by the NHS National Bowel Screening Programme. Our doctors and nurses believe it is important that patients receive relevant screening and strongly encourage all patients to take the test. Whilst screening does not diagnose bowel cancer, the results will tell you whether you need an examination of your bowels called a colonoscopy.
All patients have a named accountable GP who has the overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice. They will also work with other relevant professionals, who are involved in your care, to ensure that any care package you require meets your individual needs. As a patient you do not have to take any further action. We are informing patients of their allocated GP as they contact the practice but if you would like to know who your or your child’s allocated GP is please ask at reception or telephone the practice.
The Practice has now established a group of patients who are willing to contribute some of their time to the development of the Practice and its Health Services.
