Our Location

We operate from three sites in total. Registered patients are welcome to attend at whichever site is most convenient for them. However please note as detailed below there are some differences in the way we can provide services at the differing sites. Also it is helpful to avoid confusion if you always explain to the reception staff which site you normally attend when making alternative arrangements.

Wickersley Surgery Facilities

Morthen Road surgery is our main site for administrative purposes, but also traditionally has served the largest proportion of our registered patients from the days when it was important that patients attended the same site each time as their paper-based records were held. Since our practice now runs a modern "paper-lite" system, this is less important, but Morthen Road still continues to be the site where there is highest demand and consequently most provision in terms of surgeries and additional staff is required. In addition, our extended access service is only provided at Wickersley. Consequently, car parking can at difficult at times and be more of an issue than it is at our other two sites. However, on the other hand, being more centrally located, it is by far the easiest site to access by public transport which is something patients may like to consider when planning their visit. Morthen Road surgery has its own 24hr BP machine, spirometer, ear syringing equipment and audiogram machine.

Ravenfield Surgery Facilities

Ravenfield surgery in addition to offering the full range of services and staff as our main site at morthen road, houses a purpose built large treatment room and minor operation suite containing additional equipment for electrocautery and cryotherapy along with an on-site store of liquid nitrogen. Patients throughout the Practice requiring minor surgical procedures will therefore need to visit Ravenfield for this purpose. Ravenfield also has its own 24hr BP machine, spirometer, ear syringing equipment and audiogram machine to avoid patients' needs to travel to Morthen Road for these procedures.

Braithwell Surgery Facilities

Please note at our smallest site in Braithwell, due to the more restricted space and opening hours, the Healthcare Assistant/phlebotomy service currently operates once a week on a Wednesday morning. Braithwell patients requiring the attention of the Practice nurse or ancillary staff such as counsellors, midwives etc would normally travel to Morthen Road or Ravenfield for this purpose, whichever is the more convenient.

Additional facilities at Braithwell surgery consist of the on-site dispensary. Unfortunately due to restrictions in dispensing regulations, only patients eligible by means of their home address are allowed dispensing rights. Patients attending Braithwell surgery who reside outside the permitted area will be issued a prescription to take to a nearby pharmacy in the usual way. If in doubt whether you qualify for dispensing, please ask the Braithwell reception staff.
