Our goal is to work together with our patients, to educate them in their lifestyle choices and to help them manage and improve their overall health and wellbeing.
We welcome new patients to join us and aim to provide the same excellent clinical care to everyone.

Once again we would like to thank everyone who participated in our surveys earlier on in the year. As you might know we made several changes to our appointment system and the feedback so far has been very positive. We just want to know if you have called to make an appointment in the last few weeks/ last month and if so have you seen an improvement. If you haven’t we would like to hear your constructive views.
If you would like to leave your feedback you can do so by visiting our Facebook page or by filling in a comments slip which you can find in our reception.
Thank you, DVGP

PRG Report March 2013
“Hair loss is one of the most upsetting side effects of chemotherapy or radiation treatment. Many women try to avoid the stresses of baldness by wearing a wig. Yet, wigs can be expensive, so we have collaborated with Oberoi Consulting and Vikki Ullah to provide high quality, realistic wigs at affordable prices in a local familiar setting”.
For a consultation please ask for Anne Woodward.

We have received feedback and complaints from a considerable amount of patients that when contacting the surgery throughout the day the phone line is engaged. This is due to the current set up of the internal telephone system for the whole building.
We are eager to implement a versatile telephone system which should resolve this problem. We have asked the Telecommunications Manager for Barnsley PCT (Primary Care Trust) to help us with the situation but despite them making several tweaks it is still inadequate for our patients.
We ask that if you are affected by this that you make a call to PALs (Patient Advice and Liaison Services) on 01226433709 and share your views.
Hopefully, if large enough numbers of patients contact them it will bring forth a solution. Thank you for your help.
We would like our patients to be aware that there is now specialist weighing equipment avaliable at both our Thurnscoe and Goldthorpe sights. For further information see one of our HCA's.
