Hill Brow Partnership

Hill Brow Partnership has been providing quality medical care for patients in Mapplewell and surrounding villages for over 50 years and now provides medical care across north Barnsley, from Cawthorne to Great Houghton.

New Patients

We are open for new patients. To register simply print off the registration form in the section 'How to register' or call into our reception and the staff will be happy to help you.

Online Access

Our Practice offers online access to make and change appointments and to order repeat prescriptions, using SystmOnline. Registering is simple, just ask at reception for details. Patients can also request online access to their medical records, to view allergies, medications and recent consultations.   



Hill Brow Surgery - New Appointment System - From 13th April Hill Brow Surgery will be testing a new morning appointment system, to meet the demand for same day appointments.  Patients ringing from 8am to 11am will be given a time slot for the same morning; to see a Duty Doctor (these appointments are NOT available online). We will still have normal appointments available for patients wishing to book in advance or with a specific GP. 

Accident & Emergency - Patients are reminded that the Hospital A&E Department is for patients who have had an accident or require emergency medical help only.  For all non emergency medical problems patients should see their GP or when surgery is closed ring 111.  Your local Pharmacy also has a Minor Ailment surgery and can prescribe basic treatments for many minor illnesses.

Patients attending A&E for non emergency problems cause delays for patients with real emergencies and waste valuable NHS resources. 

Named GP - From April 2015 all GP practices are required to provide their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides to them.  If you would like to know who your allocated GP is please speak to reception.  If you have a strong preference as to who your named GP is, please let the reception team know and we will try to accommodate this.

This does not prevent you from seeing any GP in the practice is you currently do.

Patient Participation

In our ongoing quest to ensure that Hill Brow Practice continually improves and adapts to meet the needs of Primary Care we regularly ask patients for their views, through surveys/ questionnaires.

To view the report for 2015-16 please see the Patient Participation page.

Any patients interested in joining our Patient Reference Group to assist us in designing patient surveys should see the details on the Patient Participation page.  This is a virtual group which operates via e-mail. 

Care Quality Commission - Hill Brow was inspected in 2013 and classed as compliant in all areas. We were also inspected again, under the new rules, in December 2014, we have been rated as GOOD in all areas.


Volunteers needed to help train Student Doctors - We would like to set up a bank of volunteer patients who would be able to come in for about an hour to share their story with the students and help them learn.  For further information please click on the link.
