The building, Trinity Medical Centre, has long been home to two busy GP practices. In April 2017, Almshouse and Grove Surgeries merged to become Trinity Medical Centre , a bustling city centre practice boasting over 23,500 patients. Together with our branch practice, Sandal Castle Medical Centre, we are able to cover over large sectors of Wakefield from Ossett and Wrenthorpe right over to Hall Green and Walton. We welcome any registrations to individuals residing within our Practice boundaries.
Hopefully on our website you are able to find all the information you need, but do not hesitate to contact us if you need any further information as well as feedback.
On behalf of all the partners and staff, we welcome you to Trinity Medical Centre.
New Dedicated Cancellation Line
We have updated our automated phone service and introduced an appointment cancellation line when you press option 1. Please call and leave your full name, date of birth and contact telephone number with details of the appointment you are wanting to cancel. Last month we noticed 588 patients missed their appointments without giving any notice, so we hope this new option should make it easier for patients to cancel their appointments giving others the chance to seek the help they need. This service will be available from 8am-6pm Monday-Friday.
Changes to NHS Prescription Availability.
Want to know why some medications are being refused? Please follow the link to find out why some medicines will no longer be available on an NHS prescription.
From the 1st March we will be introducing our new Check Clinics at the Practice, which are predominantly used for annual review checks.
As part of our continuous efforts to improve our services to provide better care to our patients, we are launching these new check clinics for all our patients who have chronic diseases like diabetes, COPD, hypertension and heart diseases.
Check clinics are a one-stop clinic where you can have all your annual checks done in one visit, for all your chronic diseases including blood tests.
For patients who’s medical condition is under control
If your medical condition is under control, the new check clinics may mean that you only have to visit the surgery to complete your annual review in one extended appointment carried out by our health care assistants.
For patients who’s medical condition is not under control
For patients whose conditions are not under control following a check clinic appointment, they will need a further follow up on the phone or face-face with a specialist nurse or GP, one of our clinical staff will be able to advise the next stages.
When you ring the practice to ask for annual review, please give our care navigators clear information on your pre-existing conditions, so they can book you the appropriate time slot with our healthcare assistants. As a result of this new system, your appointment could be longer than usual.
Our care navigators are available to discuss this further should you have any questions.
STOP WASTING APPOINTMENTS!
During JUNE we lost 384 appointments due to people booking and not attending their appointments.
At a time when demand is so high for appointments we ask that patients cancel any appointments they may not need or that they might not make it to. Your appointment may go to someone in severe need of seeing a GP.
CALL 01924 784101 as soon as you know you won’t make an appointment
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED….The practice is embarking on a new initiative to recruit volunteers to help shape the practice and the service we provide.
We are looking for patients and carers to offer as little as one afternoon a month to help out in practice by meeting and greeting patients, assisting and signposting patients when the visit the practice and leading social events in areas that you are interested in.
