Government COVID guidance changed on Monday 19th July 2021
We have decided as a practice that our doors will remain closed
We are still open and operating as usual, but we need to restrict the number of  patients in the building at any one time.  We feel that we have worked extremely hard over the last 18 months keeping our patients and staff safe, which we will continue to do so in the coming months
To protect our staff and vulnerable patients we expect a mask to be worn when in practice. Masks can be provided on request
Many thanks for your cooperation. - Woodhouse Health Centre 

WELCOME TO WOODHOUSE HEALTH CENTRE

Welcome to Woodhouse Health Centre. The Practice was newly formed in 2008 by merging of Dr. Spinks and Dr. Mitchell partnerships.  Prior to the merger both surgeries were well established in the centre of Woodhouse village before transferring to Woodhouse Medical Centre in 1989.  We offer a full general practice service and run specialist clinics for children, pregnant women, diabetes, asthma sufferers and for patients needing warfarin management.  We aim to allow ample time for listening explanation and advice, so as to promote the better health of each patient in our care.  Read MoreCovid Practice Procedures after 19th July 2021

New NHS England Data Sharing Policy

There have been many reports in the press and social media regarding what this data policy means to the general-public.  Many of these stories are either false, or misinterpreted.  NHS England have produced a “Mythbusting” website aimed at helping patients understand what this data sharing policy is about.  For more information please follow this link:

Universal Credit

The number of Universal Credit claimants has risen dramatically in the city. As the Job Retention Scheme comes to an end, and many people are made redundant, there is expected to be a second large spike in UC applications. This is likely to cause issues for households whose UC income falls significantly short of their expenditure.  Citizens Advice expect a 30% increase in demand for their services as lockdown eases more.
