Update 04.04.2022

COVID-19 vaccinations for 5-11s

 The NHS is now offering COVID-19 vaccinations to all children aged 5-11, in line with the latest advice from the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI). As well as protecting children against serious COVID infection and Long COVID, this will reduce the risk of children passing on the infection to others.


The practice is currently not offering vaccinations for this age group, unless they are within one of the at-risk groups who will be invited, but you can book an appointment at a convenient community or pharmacy vaccination centre. Please book online at or by calling 119, free of charge.


For further information on COVID-19 vaccinations for 5-11s please visit the NHS Wakefield Clinical Commissioning Group website.

Update 20.06.2022

๐ŸŽ  FREE NHS Health Checks are available again in Wakefield!


Take 20 minutes out of your day (or evening or weekend) to finally catch up on your health. These vital health check ups can spot your risk of diabetes, heart & kidney disease, stroke and dementia.

For more details on how to book contact the surgery on 01977 704777, please call at quieter times, we know the phones are very busy.
