Your Essential Guide to Changes to Hospital Services

The Mid Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust runs a network of hospital services across three sites at Pinderfields, Dewsbury and Pontefract. They are making changes to the way services are organised to ensure local people have access to the care they need when they need it, delivered by the most appropriate health professionals.

In September 2016, they plan to complete changes to maternity, children’s and emergency surgery. Please read this Booklet that explains many of the changes and would like for you to pass onto your networks.

Advice to patients during the industrial action: 12th, 26th & 27th January and 10th February 2016 

The NHS is working hard to ensure that as few patients as possible are affected by the industrial action planned for the 12th, 26th & 27th January and 10th February 2016, but some services will need to change.

This leaflet explains how you can access NHS services over this period. It is especially important if you have a long-term health condition or you look after people in vulnerable groups – such as the elderly and young children – that you know what to do on the days of the industrial action.

Planned operations/procedures and outpatients appointments at Hospital

If you have a planned operation/procedure or outpatient appointment on a day when industrial action is taking place, your hospital will contact you if it needs to be rearranged. If you have not been contacted by the hospital you should first check their website for additional advice. If you are still unsure then contact the hospital direct.


Your GP practice will be open and working as normal on the days of the industrial action. Given that GPs may experience greater demand than normal over this period, we strongly recommend that you contact them early if you need advice or an appointment.


If you need emergency care, Accident and Emergency departments will be open for patients with serious and life threatening conditions. As is always the case to ensure that hospitals can treat those who most need it, only those patients with serious and life threatening conditions should visit their A&E.

Other medical needs

If you become ill over this period with a non-urgent condition and need advice, please visit, or go to your local pharmacist. For more serious conditions you should continue to contact your GP as usual, or call 111.

If you have regular medication please make sure you have collected your prescription from your GP and have been to the pharmacist to collect it, and have it to hand.

September 2015 Update:

Dementia Open Day -  The surgery welcomed over 30 visitors to the Demenita Awareness Day on 22nd September 2015.  GP Partner, Dr Myerscough and Mrs Claire Broome Practice Manager welcomed all to the surgery with an update on the Dementia Screening programe with 25% of patients identified at risk screened.  Improvements have been made in inside and outside the building following our review of the building and hopefully patients will notice the new signage and other updgraded facilities to aid visitors.

A "Dementia Friends" training Workshop was held with over 15 patients and was received with very positive feedback.  The waiting room was buisy with stands and information from The Patient Participation Group:   Age UK:  The Health Trainers:  The Dementia Alliance Wakefield:  Carers Wakefield and Dementia Champion Volunteer from the Council. 

Practice Nurse, Tracey was on hand to do Flu Vaccinations and Dementia Screening with several patients taking up these services it was a positive and vibrant event.

Our thanks to our team and the patient group and supporters who made it a great success.

Farewell to Dr Gillian Deeley, Salaried GP who left the practice on 30th September 2015.  Although only with us a short time we wish her every happiness in the future.

Tom left the Administration team for a new challenge in his career and we wish him every success.

Welcome to our new Administration Apprentice, Tara Kennedy who started on 28th September 2015.

Student Nurses:  3 new students join the team again from 30th September for 10 weeks.

MAY 2015 Update:

Dr Liz Moulton, GP Partner

Joining the team in September 1999 as a Partner, Dr Moulton brought a wealth of experience in patient care and dedicated work in Medical Education.  Having served the local community for almost 16 years we announce Dr Moulton’s decision to leave the practice in May 2015. We hope she will be returning occasionally to work with us in between her many varied pursuits and continue to support the care of patients and education in the practice.

Dr Lisa Yellop, GP Partner

In February 2015, Dr Yellop took planned time away from the surgery for up to 1 year. She will be coming back to us early in 2016. We have additional GP’s working with us during this time to provide care to our patients. Of course see any of the GP’s at the surgery.

Dr Jordache Myerscough, GP Partner

We are delighted to confirm the appointment of our new Partner at College Lane Surgery. Dr Myerscough joined us as a GP Registrar in August 2013 and then accepted a post as a Salaried GP in August 2014. In February 2015, the partners celebrated the confirmation of a new partner joining the team. Myerscough is here 4 days per week with particular interests in Men’s Health, Prostate Care and Long Term Condition management. Information Technology in Healthcare is one of his many interests.

Dr Edward Platford, Salaried GP

In June 2015, we will be welcoming Dr Platford to the team for 4 days per week, he is an experienced GP and in addition to caring for the range of care our patients need he will be doing Minor Surgery and joint injections as part of his role.

Dr Adam Richardson, Salaried GP

In August 2015, we will welcome our current GP Registrar Dr Richardson to the team as a Salaried GP who will be working here 3-4 days per week. In retaining our locally trained GP’s in our practice and for the community it is particularly rewarding to see how Education in College Lane Surgery is making a difference to our own workforce for now and the future.

Mrs Linda Quinn, Reception Manager

Our longest serving member of the team still here after 33 years, will be retiring from the surgery in June 2015. Linda is and has been a lynchpin in our team for us all over the years. We wish her and her family happiness and no more 6:30am starts in retirement!

Welcome to some new members of the team…….

The reception and administration team welcome……Tom, Emma, Samantha and Lindsey.



"The way in which patients at College Lane Surgery experience our care is very important to each and every member of the team. As part of this campaign, we’re all making a conscious effort to introduce ourselves to patients the first time we meet them.” Dr Liz Moulton MBE

 Wakefield Primary Care First..Advanced Training Practice

Student Nurse Mentorship

Collage Lane Surgery has been appointed by Health Education England as the HUB organisation for Wakefield General Practices for Advanced training for Undergraduate Nurses.

We work with a group of practices (spokes) to provide quality placements for undergraduate student nurses from Huddersfield and Leeds University. 

Here is a list of the Wakefield Practices accredited for Advanced Training include:


College Lane Surgery

Chapelthorpe Surgery

Ferrybridge Surgery

Kings Medical Centre

Lupset Surgery

Middlestown Surgery

Riverside Surgery 

Warrengate Medical Centre  


In these practices, Practice Nurses who are qualified Mentors deliver integrated learning that offer opportunities for Student Nurses to develop the competencies needed to work effectively in primary care settings.    We hope that these experiences will contribute to the future recruitment of nurses to work in practices when they graduate.
