Welcome to Walkley House Medical Centre
With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.
PLEASE DO NOT CONTACT US ABOUT BOOKING A COVID VACCINATION.
All practices across the city are working extremely hard to vaccinate people, starting with those who need it most. Currently over 80's, care home residents and care home staff are receiving vaccinations. This is based on the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisations (JVCI) advice on priority groups for the Covid-19 vaccine.
We worked over the weekend within our Network of 5 practices and vaccinated over 1000 patients and will be doing this again at the end of the week.
Sheffield CCG & Council have lists of all frontline Health and Care staff in Sheffield and when more vaccines become available the NHS will contact you when it's your turn to have the vaccine. Please do not contact the surgery.
Based on current forecasts it should be possible to offer a vaccine to all those people that the JVCI have said would benefit most by late Spring.
Thank you for your patience and understanding.
FACE MASK EXEMPTION
We are receiving lots of calls asking for face mask exemption cards. As wearing masks is now a legal requirement Doctors are unable to provide letters to say otherwise. You can download a certificate explaining why you find it difficult to wear a face covering which can be shown if required.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
TEXT MESSAGING Would patients please bear in mind that the text messaging service isn't always reliable. We try our best to inform patients by text of their up and coming appointments but it is your own responsibility to attend or cancel any appointments that you book.

Please do not be offended if the receptionist asks you what the problem is when you ask for an appointment. They have been instructed to do so by our Doctors.
