Short Story About Grove House Surgery
Situated deep in the heart of the finest part of old Batley, and as such part of the local conservation area, our building has been a surgery for over 100 years, expanding and adapting to changes in medicine and the increasing population of the town.
The NHS is well prepared for outbreaks of all new infectious diseases and has put in plan measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.
Pre-bookable and on-the-day appointments are available between 6.30pm and 9.30pm each weekday, with additional slots available on Saturdays from 9am and 4pm and Sundays 9am and 1pm.
The Batley Birstall Primary Care Network scheme starts in August when evening and weekend appointments will be available for any patient registered with a GP surgery in Batley and Birstall. The appointments will be available at Broughton House Surgery, Batley.
How to book an evening or weekend appointment - There are ‘pre-bookable’ and ‘on-the-day’ appointments which can be accessed through your own GP practice.

They will direct you to the most appropriate health care professional which may not always be a GP In some cases it may be necessary for one of the clinical team to ring you back to discuss your condition in more detail Pharmacies can offer minor ailments advice and over the counter medications

Grove House Surgery
"Been to see my GP, they recommended I needed some bloods doing, As a working mother it very difficult to get an appointment with nurse, usually long waiting times. The nurse was was great as I walked passed their room, and exchanged my pleasant word, they actually did my blood for me straight away. Which was brilliant I didn't have to wait for an appointment."
"I must commend the structure in place at Grove House Surgery, they really listen to their patients. - Practice Manager is very welcoming and has an open door policy for you to chat or pop in. - Doctors genuinely care about patients treatment instead of the typical "quick in and out" appointment fracas. - Nurses are more like your second mother with a responsive service."
Receptionist always on point with customer service skills instead of the lacklustre attitude you may face at some surgeries.
Initially transferred from an abysmal GP's surgery in Batley to this one and never looked back.
Thank you to Practice Manager) Dr & Nurse.
