Community Testing

Posted by: ethan - Posted on:

Community (mass) testing aims to identify people who don’t have COVID-19 symptoms (this is called being asymptomatic), but who are infectious and could spread the infection to others unknowingly.

The main aim is to help prevent and reduce transmission in the community.

This service will be available in Kirklees from Midday on the 18th December 2020.

Please see the link for more information including location sites: www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/health-and-well-being/covid19-mass-community-testing.aspx


To stop the spread of the coronavirus we have had to limit access to the surgery and you cannot gain access unless your GP or Nurse has asked you to come to the Practice.

The inner lobby is open to post prescriptions or other requests and to collect sample bottles.

There is an intercom if you need to contact a member of the reception team.

Non-urgent advice: Please Note

We have suspended all online booking

If you are wanting to book an appointment please DO NOT attend the surgery, please contact us by telephone.

However please be patient as the telephone lines are likely to be busy.


Please also be aware that appointments will be booked as telephone appointments and if it is felt necessary by the clinician then a face to face appointment will be made.

If you are asked to attend in person then please wear a face mask and if possible please attend on your own. 


Help us help you stay safe

When you come to the GP surgery, you will need to wear a face covering.

This can be a mask, scarf or homemade face covering; it just needs to cover your mouth and nose.

Please arrive on time and alone wherever possible.

Please use the hand sanitiser as soon as you enter the building.

By doing so you are helping to reduce the risk of spreading coronavirus and keeping our surgery safe.

The receptionists have been told to ask screening questions to every patient, please answer these truthfully and accept the advice you are given if directed to other services.

You can help us by ensuring we have your up to date contact details and asking our receptionists about online access so you can see your results and order your own prescriptions.

Please do not come to the surgery with general queries.

Please phone the surgery on an afternoon when the phone lines may be quieter.

Any general sick note requests can be sent viaadmin.paddocksurgery@nhs.net or dropped off in the collection box near the front door.

Please be aware that no clinical queries will be answered or appointments booked via this email address.

Please bear with us at this time and understand our phone-lines will be extra busy.

Thank you for your continuing patience.
