Welcome to Undercliffe Surgery

Undercliffe Surgery

The practice relocated to new purpose built premises in July 2010, conveniently located in the centre of Heckmondwike.  The building is shared with another practice, although we remain completely separate, and we occupy the ground floor.

The new building offers modern, spacious facilities enhanced by plenty of on-site parking and an attached pharmacy, and allows us to expand the range of services available from the surgery staff.

We hope to provide our patients with an efficient, friendly and up-to-date service, and that you will find this website useful in guiding you through the people who work within the practice and how to use the surgery to its best effect.


From 1st December 2014 and following feedback and listening to our patients views we will have appointments available for advance booking.
In addition appointments will be available to book on the day for those patients who have an URGENT NEED to see a clinician.
