Hill Brow Partnership

Hill Brow Partnership has been providing quality medical care for patients in Mapplewell and surrounding villages for over 50 years. In 2009 the Partners opened two new Practices in Barnsley; HBP Lundwood and Highgate, enabling us to provide high quality sevices in other areas.  The Partnership now provides medical care across north Barnsley, from Cawthorne to Great Houghton.

Information for all three Practices is contained on this website and can be accessed by the tabs above.

All three Practices are open for new patients.  To register simply print off the registration form in the section 'How to register' or call into any of our receptions and staff will be happy to help you.

Online Access

Our Practices offer online access to make and change appointments and to order repeat prescriptions, using SystmOnline.  Registering is simple, just ask at reception for details.  Patients can also request online access to their medical records, to view allergies, medications and recent consultations.   

 

Newsletter

HBP Lundwood and Highgate Contracts - Patients registered at Highgate (Shafton/Grimethorpe) and Lundwood may have received a letter from NHS England recently about our current contract coming up for renewal on 30th June 2015. This is now the normal process for all new GP and Dental Practices. Please be reassured that the practices are NOT CLOSING, in fact we are extending our premises in Priory Campus and will be moving into the first part of the extension on 9th February. 

Accident & Emergency - Patients are reminded that the Hospital A&E Department is for patients who have had an accident or require emergency medical help only.  For all non emergency medical problems patients should see their GP or when surgery is closed ring 111.  Your local Pharmacy also has a Minor Ailment surgery and can prescribe basic treatments for many minor illnesses.

Patients attending A&E for non emergency problems cause delays for patients with real emergencies and waste valuable NHS resources. 

 

Patient Participation

In our ongoing quest to ensure that Hill Brow Practices continually improve and adapt to meet the needs of Primary Care we regularly ask patients for their views, through surveys/ questionnaires.

To view the report for 2014-15 please see the patient participation page which can be found under each Practice.

Any patients interested in joining our Patient Reference Group to assist us in designing patient surveys should see the details on the Patient Participation page.  This is a virtual group which operates via e-mail. 

Care Quality Commission - Hill Brow was inspected in 2013 and classed as compliant in all areas. We were also inspected again, under the new rules, in December 2014 and will post the report as soon as it is published. 

 

Volunteers needed to help train Student Doctors - We would like to set up a bank of volunteer patients who would be able to come in for about an hour to share their story with the students and help them learn.  For further information please click on the link. volunteers needed_1.pdf
