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 More
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.
