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.
The surgery will be closed on Monday 25th August. Please ensure you order any required medication. Thank You
There has been an increase in the demand of patients recently 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 and the patients numbers are rising. We are working to capacity but appreciate people have urgent problems and 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 and there are only so many patients our doctors can safely see. We cannot increase beyond that 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 the practice.

New Telephone System
Our new telephone system is now installed and we would like to inform patients that ALL CALLS ARE NOW RECORDED FOR TRAINING PURPOSES.
Named GP for Patients Over 75
As from April 2014 all patients aged 75 or over will have a named GP who will be responsible for their overall care. If you are one of the patients who fall into this group you will be receiving a letter informing you of your named GP. This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice as you currently do and you can STILL BOOK APPOINTMENT WITH YOUR PREFERRED GP.
If you have any questions or wish to discuss this further please contact the practice.
