Physician Associates

We are delighted as a training Practice to announce that we are one of the first practices in the region to take on trainees from the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University on the Physician Associates course.

Physician Associates are a new type of Medical Practitioner with post graduate clinical training and who work with Doctors and Nurses in the diagnosis and management of patients.

They are trained to perform a number of roles including: taking medical histories, performing examinations, analysing test results, diagnosing illnesses and formulating management plans.  

They are always under the direct supervision of a Doctor.

Please discuss with the receptionist if you feel an appointment with the Physician  Associates may be helpful for you. 


Woo! Patient Participation Group High Five!

- We are looking for new members -

A Patient Participation Group was formed by the practice in 2011; and regular meetings are held where all members of the group are invited into the practice. The meetings give the practice feedback and ideas from the perspective of patients. The minutes from the meetings are available to view on the website.

This group is formed to discuss the services offered by the practice and to decide upon an area each year for change/improvement. An action plan is then formed to carry out the actions agreed upon.

In order to make our group more representative of our practice and its patients we are recruiting new members to the group. Please pass on your details to our receptionists should you be interested in joining our group.


Thanks!  The NHS Friends and Family Test  Thank you!

Hallam and South Locality GP practices want you to have the best possible experience of care. The NHS Friends and Family Test is a way of gathering your feedback, so we can continually review our service.

Your feedback will help us learn more about what you think your experience – what you like and what you think we can improve. Ultimately, you’re helping us to make changes that will ensure we can offer the best possible care.

Measles Think Measles! Measles

Measles is a serious illness that can be unpleasant and lead to complications, especially in vulnerable, immunocompromised or pregnant patients.  Measles is highly infectious to anyone who is not immune—being in the same room as someone with measles for more than 15 minutes is a significant exposure. Measles symptoms can include: 

High fever Sore, red, watery eyes, coughing and/or runny nose, small red spots with bluish-white centres inside the mouth. A red-brown blotchy rash, which appears after several days

Anyone phoning the surgery with any of these symptoms should not come into the surgery or go into a walk-in centre or hospital A&E department where they could infect others.
