The partners at Carterknowle & Dore Medical Practice are not in a position to sign Westfield forms sanctioning chiropractor treatment, as this is not a form of management that we routinely recommend. Whilst we recognise that some patients feel they benefit from chiropractor treatment, we are not assured of its effectiveness or that it is free from risk of injury or inappropriate exposure to x-rays.
We therefore leave it to the discretion of Westfield as to whether they fund the course of chiropractic treatment the patient has undertaken at their own discretion.
We have now finished all of our 2019 Flu Vaccination Clinics, so if you are eligible please phone the surgery on 0114 229 1686 to arrange an appointment.

Patient Participation Group
- 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.
The NHS Friends and Family Test
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.
Please take a couple of minutes to complete the sort questionnaire the link below.

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.
