Morley Health Centre boasts a close-knit team offering a wide range of services.
Patients can see everyone from family doctors to physiotherapists during a visit to Morley Health Centre.
A wide range of services is based in the facility on Corporation Street, which lies in the heart of the market town.
And despite their varied roles, staff are a close-knit team who often know not only their patients, but their families too.
In the waiting room of the centre, patients arrive to see specialists or the GP practice which is based there.
That includes two doctors, four receptionists, a practice nurse and practice manager Liz Arndell.
“We are on third and fourth generations now,” she said.
“You get to know your patients. We also have many of the travelling community on our books.”
The GP practice is run independently of other services at the centre, which are provided by Leeds Community Healthcare NHS Trust.
Diane Barton, locality support assistant at the centre, explained they have a busy Warfarin clinic which sees up to 100 people, while the number of mums coming into the baby clinics has meant they’ve even had to create a special area to park pushchairs.
Other services include community mental health, podiatry, midwifery, speech and language therapy and the Intermediate Care Team, which co-ordinates support for people coming out of hospital.
“Our patients know us and we know them,” Diane added.
On reception, administration assistant Zach Osta is the first person many will see.
He said: “It’s a lovely place to work – really nice, friendly staff and all the departments get on well with each other.”
Meanwhile, elsewhere in the building, dentist Yewande Payne is preparing to see one of her patients.
Yewande works for the Leeds Special Care Dental Service, which treats children and adults with special needs.
Physiotherapists Matt Smithard and Rob Painter are kept busy seeing patients referred by their GP – in a typical day, 17 each.
The centre is also the base for city-wide services.
The Inclusion Nursing Service looks after the healthcare of pupils at six Specialist Inclusive Learning Centres, as well as two schools with pupils with additional needs.
Kathy Goodwin, one of the co-ordinators, said: “It’s a nice health centre – warm and friendly.”
