Welcome to Station Road Surgery
Our aim is to ensure that you have a positive experience with the care we provide and improve the health and well- being of all our patients.
We are constantly updating our website and strive to provide simple delivery of information regarding a wide range of our services and current information.
As we enter another period of lockdown and uncertainty, please be assured we remain open if you need us. A clinician will speak to you on the phone to begin with and only invite you in for a face-to-face appointment if necessary.
Certain routine work may stop for the time being. Examples might include chronic disease monitoring for people who's condition is stable, so we can concentrate on people with poorly controlled chronic conditions such as Asthma, Diabetes or COPD, as people with poorly controlled chronic conditions are more vulnerable to developing complications of COVID-19 infection.
Other routine work such as cervical smears, vaccinations, injections and children's immunisations will continue as normal.
Avoid the telephone! Consult with the one of our GPs online, get a response within 48 hours. Also request fit notes and other general enquiries.
COVID 19 VACCINATION
Following extensive trials, the first safe and effective COVID-19 vaccine has been approved in the UK and the NHS is starting to offer vaccinations to those at greatest risk from COVID-19.
The first vaccinations are being offered to people in the priority groups identified by the Joint Committee of Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI), starting with people aged 80 and over. Groups of GP practices are working together to provide local vaccination services and will contact eligible patients when it is their turn.
When it is the right time for you to receive your vaccination, you will receive an invitation via the phone or through a letter either from your GP or the national booking system.The NHS will never ask for payment for the vaccine or for your bank details. Genuine emails from the NHS are usually sent from ‘NHSNoReply’. If you get a suspicious text message about vaccinations from an unknown number, please delete it.
We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but please could we kindly ask you not to contact the practice for information about the vaccine or to ask for an appointment, as you will not be able to get one until you receive an invitation.
If you are invited for a vaccine, please act on your invite straight away and make sure you attend your appointments when you arrange them.
In the meantime, please continue to abide by all the social distancing and hand hygiene guidance, which will still save lives.
Vaccination Invitation Letters from the National Booking System
If you have received a letter from the national booking system about a vaccination appointment and have any questions about this, please contact them on the number given. The practice does not have any information on the centres and is not able to book appointments for patients at these venues.
If you would prefer to have your appointment at our local service, you do not need to do anything – we will contact you as soon as an appointment is available.
If you are aged (75) or over, and have not yet had a vaccination, you may get a letter from the NHS national booking system inviting you to make an appointment at a large scale centre or community pharmacy.
These are being sent to people who live within 45 minutes of one of the centres that has been opened, which might be in a different area to where you would normally receive your healthcare.
Please note that you do not have to book an appointment at one of these centres if it is not convenient for you to get there. You can:
choose to wait for an invitation from your GP practice OR choose to wait until one of the West Yorkshire centres open and are added to the national booking system, which will happen over the next few weeks.
Please do not contact your local practice about an appointment until you receive an invitation from them. They will not be able to advise you on when you will get an appointment or which centres are available. All this information is available on the national booking system website.
The centres in West Yorkshire that are currently on the national booking system are:
- Boots pharmacy in Halifax
- Superdrug in the Merrion Centre, Leeds
- Pharmacy2U at the Village Hotel, Leeds
- Pharmacy2U at Morrisons, Dewsbury Road, Wakefield.

The surgery building was opened in 1984 and is the result of extensive conversion works to the old Sowerby Bridge Police Station.
We provide ramps and toilet facilities for the disabled. A wheelchair available for anyone who has problems getting their own wheelchair into the surgery. All our patient services are on the ground floor.
