There has been a doctor’s surgery at Falkland House for over half a century, and the main part of the building is the original doctor’s family home.
We have approximately 4000 patients, and as the population is reasonably stable, we have the opportunity to build lasting relationships. Often patients have been at the Practice for many years and several generations of a family may have been through the surgery doors.
There have only been six permanent doctors at the Practice since its inception. This is not to say that we are stuck in the past. We like to think that we combine modern medicine with the traditional values of caring general practice.
The drive through blood testing service will be moving to Building 183 (Former Blood Service and current Covid vaccination site), Longley Lane, Sheffield, S5 7JN from Tuesday 25th October 2022.

Local GP practices have teamed up to improve the way we provide weekend and evening appointment for our patients.
This new service will begin on Saturday 1st October it and will mean that most people will be able to book weekend and evening appointments closer to where they live. For our patients we will be providing appointments at Porterbrook Medical Centre.
Remote and face-to-face appointments can be made with a variety of GP practice staff including Doctors, Advance Care Practitioners, Nurses, Nurse Associates, Health Care Assistants, Physiotherapists and, Pharmacists.
Initially appointments can be booked through you practice, but we will soon be adding the option for patients to book direct online and through NHS 111.

What is a Listening Service?
All of us find ourselves facing difficulties from time to time and in a busy, sometimes stressful life, it’s important that people know that they are being listening to. Each of us is more than just physical. The health of our inner self can affect our well-being in every other aspect.
You may find it helpful to talk to someone independent, who has time to listen and is experienced in supporting people through life’s challenges.

Our Patient Participation Group has successfully applied to the British Heart Foundation in conjunction with the Dept of Health to be supplied with a community defibrillator and cabinet. This is a fantastic result for the whole community. A big thank you to Lynn and her team of dedicated volunteers.The cabinet will be sited on the outside wall of the surgery so will be accessible to surgery staff during practice opening hours as well as members of the public when the surgery is closed. More information can be found on our Patient Group page.
Electronic Prescription Service – A new way to get your medicines and appliances.
We now have some literature available in other formats eg – Practice Leaflet in large font, Stop Smoking guide in braille, childhood immunisation DVD. Due to limited supplies some of these items will only be available to borrow rather than keep. As part of this initiative could you please let reception know if you have any particular information/communication needs so that we can improve our service to you.
