Trainee Practice

Spring Hall Group Practice is also a training practice – As a patient you may have contact with a number of trainees or junior doctors:

GP Registrars – The GP Registrars / GP Specialty Trainees (GPST) are fully qualified Doctors who are enrolled onto the GP Training scheme. Throughout the training process they will have training roles in primary care and the hospital – The training period usually lasts for three years, with those in GPST1 / GPST2 spending 4 months at the practice and GPST3 spending a year with the practice. As with all trainees, they are supervised by Senior GPs.

Foundation Year Doctors (FY2) – After obtained a medical degree, trainees spend two years in the national Foundation Training. During the second year, they often have 4 months in general practice. FY2 Doctors also remain under clinical supervision. They have a longer appointment time allocated as they often need more time than a qualified GP to manage each individual case.

The management team are happy to help with any non-medical problems, or to receive any complaints or suggestions regarding the service offered by the surgery. Complaints are generally accepted in a written format.


The receptionists will assist you in making emergency and routine appointments to see the doctors or the nurses. They will also give details of how to obtain repeat prescriptions, answer the telephone and deal with enquiries. They have a difficult job to do so please be patient. Please ask a receptionist for somewhere more private if you need to speak to them in confidence. Receptionists are available to patients from 08:00 until 18:30 in person or on the telephone.

Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.

Our district nurses work closely with the doctors and are able to provide home nursing and advice about care and convalescence after discharge from hospital.

We provide a full range of maternity services through our community midwife. She holds antenatal clinics and offers help and advice on all aspects of pregnancy care. Please make your initial appointment for booking with the doctor. Postnatal examinations are performed six weeks after the baby is born. All Calderdale Maternity Services are now based and operating from the Jubilee Centre, Halifax. Tel: 01422 360336.

The health visitors support individuals and families with a variety of social and medical problems. They can give expert advice on health care, especially for children under five and elderly people. They also run the child health clinics with the doctor.

They will call at your home at the request of our doctors or hospital staff. You may contact them between 8:30–10:00am and 16:00–17:00 on 01422 329476 or 08444 773860. The Health visitors are based at Horne Street in Halifax.
