Crown Street Surgery is a purpose built surgery. Our practice area covers Swinton, Kilnhurst, Wath-on-Dearne, Mexborough. We are only able to accept patients who live in these areas.

There are no parking facilities for patients at the surgery unless they are disabled. Patients are requested to use the free public car parks on Queen Street and Church Street. Please do not park on Crown Street. This ensures that our neighbours can park outside their own homes.

Each day the surgery offers a telephone triage services.

The GP/Nurse will either give you some advice or allocate you with an appropriate appointment. This appointment may be at a different time to the above appointment times.               

Home Visits

If you need the Doctor to visit please try to ring before 10.30am. Home visits are for people who are housebound or are too ill to travel to the surgery. The receptionist will always ask you the nature of the problem, as this will enable the Doctor to decide the urgency of the visit. Home visits are very time consuming. In the time it takes to visit one patient at home your GP can see several patients in the surgery. Hence, in most cases, the Doctor phones first to check the nature and need for home visits. Lack of transport is not an acceptable reason for requesting the Doctor to visit.
