Welcome to our website!
The doctors and staff at the Henry Moore Clinic and Fryston Road Surgery in the West Yorkshire town of Castleford are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We aim to be a "Family Practice". We are members of Wakefield Health Alliance, a local federation of GP practices working for the benefit of our region's patients.
We work from two surgeries:
Henry Moore Clinic, Smawthorne Lane
Fryston Road Surgery, Airedale
Please feel free to contact either site.
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, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side.
We offer online booking and online repeat prescriptions.
You will also find useful self-help information and patient leaflets on NHS Choices.
Please note that due to significant illness of one of the doctors, we have lost 130 appointments a week. We are trying very hard to accommodate these lost appointments and are actively trying to recruit locum doctors. Given strains on the NHS primary care system, it is rather difficult to obtain locum cover. We have had to make some changes to the appointments system. We have limited the number of pre-booked appointments and provided more urgent "book on the day" appointments in their place. We thank you for your support and patience with us during this difficult period. We are sure you would all hope for a full and speedy recovery for the doctor in question.
Bank Holiday Closing
Please note that both the surgeries will be closed Monday May 29th. Please order your repeat medication in good time to ensure you have sufficient to last over this period.
Out of Hours Services
If you need urgent medical advice or care, Tel: 01977552007 or 01977552109 and your call will automatically be transferred to Out Of Hours Service by following the instructions given.
NHS 111 is the new 'out of hours' provider for non-emergency care (conditions which do not require 999) - simply telephone 111 to speak to an advisor.
Minor illnesses can attend the Walk-In-Centre: 47 King Street, Wakefield. 8am - 8pm 7 days a week.
All staff in GP surgeries across the Wakefield District Clinical Commissioning Group take part in a series of half day sessions once a month on a Wednesday afternoon to enable the provision of staff training. This includes all GP’s, Nurses and Administration staff.
As we are fully committed to the training of all our staff your surgery will start taking part in the monthly training sessions. This is to help improve our skills in providing efficient patient care in all areas. The next training day will be on:
WEDNESDAY 26th April
The surgeries will close at 12 noon. If you require a GP urgently please telephone the surgery and you will be directed on how to access urgent care.
The practice is starting to use a TEXT REMINDER service for our booked appointments. We will assume consent unless you tell us otherwise. If you wish to receive reminders please ensure your mobile details at the practice are up to date.

TELEPHONE ORDERING OF REPEAT PRESCRIPTIONS
From the 1st November 2015 the Practice ceased to take repeat prescription orders over the telephone. Although we appreciate that this was convenient, it had actually been an area of concern for some time. The main concerns were with regard to clinical safety and the need to ensure that orders are correct. As a result, for protection and safety of patients, we do not accept repeat requests over the telephone.
In order to provide a clinically safe prescription service we feel it is appropriate to ask for all medication orders to be made by other means.
You can order by the following methods:
*Over the internet on the Practice website - SEE INSTRUCTION BELOW
Internal Post boxes – ground floor at Henry Moore and inside front door at Fryston Road Surgery
By Royal Mail
By Fax – 01977 604176 at Henry Moore Clinic and 01977 604197 at Fryston Road Surgery
If you would like to register to use the internet to place your orders please speak to the receptionist to arrange a password for you.
We do apologise for the inconvenience this will initially cause but we hope that you will see the benefits and that the changes will provide you with a quicker and easier access both over the telephone and at the reception desk.
*If you would like to register to use the internet to place your orders please speak to the receptionist to arrange a password for you.
Skin Surgery for Skin Tags and Seborrhoeic Keratoses
Unfortunately removal of these skin lesions cannot be offered on the NHS. We can, however, suggest onward referral for private treatment.
We would like to inform patients that ALL CALLS ARE NOW RECORDED FOR TRAINING PURPOSES.
WE ARE A REGISTERED WITH THE SAFER PLACES SCHEME AND WE ARE WORKING TOWARDS BECOMING DEMENTIA FRIENDLY.
