Grove House Surgery

Grove House Surgery is a GP practice with responsibility for approx. 9200 patients within North Kirklees. We provide the healthcare, support and guidance for everyone registered with Grove House Surgery, and as a membership practice of NHS North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group (NKCCG) we are striving towards supporting patients to live longer, happier and healthier lives.

1. Action Plan

1. The National Dementia Declaration lists seven outcomes that the DAA are seeking to achieve for people with dementia and their carers. How would you describe your organisation’s role in delivering better outcomes for people with dementia and their carers?

The simplest and most effective way for Grove House Surgery to make a difference, is to increase awareness of how our reception/ admin staff work with patients and their families/ carers.

2. What are the challenges to delivering these outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?

The biggest challenge for Grove House Surgery is time. By Grove House Surgery working in partnership across NKCCG, with other health and social care providers in Kirklees, we hope to be able to make steady progress in improving what we do with all patients. 

2. Actions

  • Raise awareness of dementia

    • Grove House Surgery actively focuses on the needs of patients, and hopes to become an organisation that is working towards becoming Dementia Friendly.

    • As reception/admin staff watch the Dementia Friends video or attend a session we will encourage them to proudly wear their badge.

    • If resource allows, support any local developments co‐ordinated by North Kirklees Clinical Commissioning Group, Kirklees Dementia Action Alliance or other interested party to work towards Grove House Surgery being part of a Dementia Friendly Community.

    • We will provide a link on Grove House Surgery’s website to allow people to find out more/ book onto Dementia Friends sessions for themselves. 

    Implementation, Planning
  • Going forward

    Working alongside our NKCCG member practices, and other colleagues, organisations and individuals within Kirklees, Grove House Surgery will review and reflect on how further changes and improvements might be made for the benefit of all patients.
