Darnall Health Centre is now under new management.
Darnall Health Centre is now under new management. On 1st May 2022 Primary Care Sheffield took over the contract for the surgery, which has been renamed North Darnall Health Centre.
Primary Care Sheffield (PCS) is a not-for-profit company set up and developed by general practice in Sheffield to provide support in delivering world class primary care. We already run six GP Surgeries in Sheffield as well as Sexual Health Sheffield, evening and weekend GP hubs, a paramedic home visiting service, vasectomy service and ECG clinics.
This is a management change. There will be no change to patient services. Patients will continue to receive GP services as normal and should continue to use the surgery as usual. We are committed to keeping a fully functioning GP service running from North Darnall Health Centre and plan to increase practice services over the coming months and years.
We would also like to welcome Dr Saward an experienced Sheffield GP to the Surgery. Dr Saward’s working days are every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Electronic Isolation Note
People unable to work for more than seven days because of coronavirus (COVID-19) can obtain an isolation note through a new online service.
Isolation notes will provide employees with evidence for their employers that they have been advised to self-isolate due to coronavirus, either because they have symptoms or they live with someone who has symptoms, and so cannot work.
The notes can be accessed through the NHS 111 online.
After answering a few questions, an isolation note will be emailed to the user. This will relieve the pressure on practices having to issue fit notes, if patients contact you asking for a fit note, direct them to https://111.nhs.uk/isolation-note.
