Welcome to Eightlands Surgery

The doctors and staff at Eightlands surgery in Dewsbury 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, contraception, alcohol and lifeline shared care.

 

Covid Vaccine - January Update

Saturday 16th January - if you have an appointment for the covid vaccination this weekend, please enter Dewsbury Health Centre via the Wellington Road entrance using the Wellington road car park (car parking will be free). To help us maintain social distance please do not arrive early to your appointment and wear a short sleeved top so we can easily reach the top of your arm to give the jab. 
 

We are still working to vaccinate those patients aged over 80 years, if you are in this cohort and have not yet booked your appointment please contact us.

Update- Friday 15th January. We expect to start inviting our patients over 75 years of age for covid vaccinations from next week.  

If you are aged under 80 please DO NOT CONTACT us about your vaccine, we WILL contact you when we have vaccines available for your cohort. 

 
If you are a health care worker your employer will facilitate your vaccine at the hospital when they receive a notification to do so. The vaccines for your cohort are not currently administered by us. 

In order for us to invite patients more quickly for the covid vaccination, it would help to have a mobile phone number on file. Please use the form online to update your contact details.  Don't worry if you don't have a mobile number, we will call you on your home telephone once vaccines are available for your cohort. 

Thank you. 

 

Flu Vaccines

We are now taking appointments for the flu vaccine. There are different vaccines available and you will be given the most appropriate one depending on your age, please see information from NHS Flu Vaccines for further advice.

We can still offer flu vaccines for all patients in at risk categories or those patient aged over 65 years (if you are having a covid vaccination please do not book your flu vaccination within 7 days of you covid appointment) 

You will be invited via text or phone call if you or your child are eligible for a vaccine.

We encourage patients to book early if you would like a flu vaccine as uptake is predicted to be higher than usual.

To maintain social distancing and keep everyone safe we ask that you do the following when attending a flu clinic:
