Welcome to the Henry Moore Clinic!
The doctors and staff at the Henry Moore Clinic in Castleford are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side.
STAFF TRAINING AND TARGET
All staff in GP surgeries across the Wakefield District Clinical Commissioning Group take part in a series of half day sessions once a month on a Wednesday afternoon to enable the provision of staff training. This includes all GP’s, Nurses and Administration staff.
As we are fully committed to the training of all our staff your surgery will start taking part in the monthly training sessions. This is to help improve our skills in providing efficient patient care in all areas. The next training day will be:
Wednesday 19th November- closed from 1pm - Telephone lines will close at 12 noon.
Should you need urgent treatment at these times, when telephoning the surgery you will be given instructions on how to access urgent services.
The dates are set annually and a full list for the rest of this year can be found on the APPOINTMENTS TAB at the top of the page.
There has been an increase in the demand on the service recently and we regret that you may not always get the appointment time or GP of your choice. As you know we do work from two sites to look after our patients but the number of patients is rising. We are working to capacity but appreciate people have urgent problems and so these will always be dealt with.
To try and help meet the demand we observe our appointments and when routine clinics are full to capacity, which is now most days, the doctors will create extra spaces above and beyond this to see patients who have an urgent need. Obviously this is a limited resource, there are only so many patients our doctors can safely see. We cannot increase beyond this as we feel it is primarily not safe, but secondarily not fair on patients to receive a stretched service.
We appreciate your understanding and patience with your practice.

However this year we have decided to try and increase the uptake of this important vaccination and will open a few selected Saturday Mornings.
