Welcome to The Greenway Medical Practice
The doctors and staff are pleased to welcome you to The Greenway Medical practice in Cleckheaton. We are located on the first floor of the purpose-built Health Centre, opposite the bus station. Follow the signs and access us via the stairs or the lift.
Our team consists of 4 GP’s, 2 Nurse Practitioners, 2 Practice Nurses and 2 Health Care Assistants, plus a range of reception and administrative staff. We are also a training practice, so will often have a GP-in-training working with us.
We take pride in offering a high quality service that is friendly, prompt and comprehensive. Please take a look around the website for further information about the practice and the wide range of services we offer. You will also find other health-related information and links that we hope will be useful.

Looking after our patients with long term conditions
We are beginning to invite patients with long term conditions for their annual health checks, however these will be delayed so please bear with us. If you have any concerns about your health, you should telephone the surgery to speak to an appropriate clinician.
If you are invited to the surgery for an appointment, please follow these 3 important guidelines to keep everyone safe;
- Wear a face covering
- Attend for your appointment on your own wherever possible
- Arrive no more than 5 minutes before your appointment time
Seasonal Influenza and Covid-19 Booster Vaccinations
We will soon be planning our seasonal flu vaccination programme, and await deatils of the Covid-19 booster vaccination programme.
Eligible patients for the flu vaccine include:
Anyone aged 65 years or over
Anyone aged between 50 and 64 years old without an existing long term condition
Adults aged 18 – 64 years with a long term condition (i.e. Asthma, COPD, Diabetes, Heart Disease, etc.)
Children aged 6 months to 17 years with a long term condition
All well children aged 2 or 3 years old on 31st August 2021
Well children of school age will be offered the vaccine at school – we are unable to vaccinate children of school age without a long term condition. If your child has a long term condition and is offered the vaccine at school, they may have it there to prevent the need for attending the surgery.
We will update information on the Covid-19 Boosters as soon as the details are released to us.
Kirklees Community Response Service
Kirklees Council have opened a new dedicated helpline as part of their Covid-19 Community Response.
They're working alongside citizens and local organisations to make sure that together we can all support our neighbours and communities over the coming weeks. They are working especially closely with local voluntary sector organisations through our partners at Volunteering Kirklees (part of Third Sector Leaders).
Together they've developed a co-ordinated Community Response, including a Kirklees Council
helpline and online forms that anyone can use to either request help, or to offer support to others.
Their response teams in local places will be matching requests for help with offers of support, so that we can work together to support the most vulnerable in our communities.
How to request support or offer support...
Anyone can let us know about the things they need help with, or that someone who they are
concerned about might need help with. Individuals, organisations and businesses can also tell us about the support they may be able to offer to others.
· Online forms: https://www.kirklees.gov.uk/beta/advice-support-and-sharing/covid-19-community-response.aspx
· Community Response helpline: 01484 226919
The helpline is managed by Kirklees Direct and opened at 9am on Wednesday 25th March. It will initially be open from 8am to 6pm weekdays. We will review this daily. Citizens and organisations can share information with us online at any time.
Use our Online Consultation System
Tell us about your problem and request medical advice - or ask an admin question - and we’ll respond usually within 3-4 hours if the request is submitted before 12 noon on our usual practice working days.
