IT Outage update - 19.07.2024

We are currently not affected by the global IT outage. We are aware that some NHS services have been affected and we are keeping up to date to ensure we are responsive to anything that affects our services.

Welcome to Porter Brook Medical Centre & Student Health at SHU

Our dedicated practice team consists of doctors, nurse practitioners, nurses, health practitioners, nurse associates, pharmacists, health care assistants, attached health care professionals, officers, administrative staff and receptionists. Together, we provide a full range of general medical services. All patients registered with the practice can be seen at Porter Brook but our site at the City Campus is only available to students of SHU.

Our mission is to provide a high-quality, accessible service to patients in a welcoming environment where patients and staff feel respected and valued.

Of course, we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer several clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.

When We Are Closed

When the surgery is closed, please phone the surgery daytime number: Your call will automatically go through to the Sheffield GP Collaborative or you will receive a voicemail message directing you towards the NHS 111 service.

NHS 111 - provides health advice 24 hours a days on 111 or at www.nhs.uk/111 Emergency Out-Of-Hours Service

Sheffield NHS Walk-In Centre is based at the City GP Health Centre on Broad Lane and is open 8am - 10pm daily. You can attend this centre for treatment of minor illnesses, emergency contraception, sexual health and contraception advice and advice on health issues.

Sheffield Minor Injuries Unit at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Glossop Road, treats adults with injuries such as sprains, cuts and grazes.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
