"Ashfield Medical Centre received HIGHLY COMMENDED at the Yorkshire Evening Post ‘Best of Health’ Awards 2016"
We are pleased to announce Ashfield Medical Centre has received "highly commended in the category of Community Health Awards at the Yorkshire Evening Post ‘Best of Health’ Awards 2016. This award recognises our work around Year of Care – an approach to offering care that means staff at the practice work with patients to identify personal goals and tools that empower them to manage their conditions themselves. It means the care is centred around the patients’ needs.
Delivering Year of Care has been a team approach involving our nursing team, administration team and reception team who have all worked tirelessly to improve care and support for patients with chronic diseases.

"Bowel screening - take the test CLICK HERE for further information"
Patients aged between 60 and 74 are sent a bowel screening kit by the NHS National Bowel Screening Programme.
Doctors at the Practice believe it is important that our patients receive relevant screening and strongly encourage all patients to take the test. Whilst screening does not diagnose bowel cancer, the results will tell you whether you need an examination of your bowels called a colonoscopy.
