Welcome to Fountain Medical Centre

Welcome to our website! Here you can find all the information about the GP practice and the services we offer, from our opening times, to information on diseases and treatments.

The Practice is long established, and originally dates back to the 1920’s. It is now named in honour of Geoffrey Dekeyser, our Senior Partner until 1993, who retired after 43 years as a family doctor in Morley.

Our Partners offer skills in specific areas of expertise and we all “internally refer” which could often mean that a secondary care referral is unnecessary.

Our large and comprehensively skilled nursing team provide the bedrock of our chronic disease management along with family planning, travel and immunisation services, and the Minor Illness Clinic, plus all the standard Practice Nursing skills including cervical cytology, dressings, venopuncture, ECGs etc.

National Cancer Diagnosis Audit

The National Cancer Diagnosis Audit (NCDA) seeks to improve how cancers are diagnosed in the UK. The audit uses data provided by patients and collected by the NHS as part of their care and support. It looks at how patients are diagnosed with cancer, including which symptoms they report, how often they go to see their GP, what tests they have done, when they are referred and when they find out about their diagnosis. 

The NCDA helps us to better understand what good practice already exists, as well as where changes may be needed to improve care and, ultimately, diagnose cancers at an earlier stage. 

“I was diagnosed with my cancer extremely quickly, which I am sure made the whole process slightly easier to deal with. I suspect with a delayed diagnosis the outcome might have been very different.” Jennifer, patient representative for NCDA
