About Us

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. Batley itself is an old mill town, which was very wealthy at the turn of the century. The decline of the textile trade led to increasing unemployment and economic decline. Winning “City Challenge” funding in 1992 ensured much needed regeneration of this forgotten town. We are situated next to The Mill Village, Batley, one of the UK’s biggest retail mills and are also 5 minutes walk from Batley train station which has links to Dewsbury, Leeds and beyond. We currently have 4 full-time doctors and a part-time nurse practitioner as well as our practice nurses and ancillary staff. Our team have regular clinics at both Grove House surgery and our branch surgery at Chickenley. Please see individual profiles to the left and appointments for further information.

Chickenley Medical Centre

A branch of our main surgery in Batley, we are situated centrally in Chickenley, originally a farming hamlet, and halfway between Ossett and Dewsbury. Our team have regular clinics at both branches so please see appointments for further information.

With patients’ needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register.

Care Navigation

Dr Brian Lynch and the GP Partners have introduced a new system of ‘Care Navigation’ when you call the Practice with your enquiry. Our ‘Care Navigators’ will need to ask you a few questions to deal with your call more effectively and our GP Partners ask for patients cooperation with this as much as possible. 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
