Extended opening hours

Providing you with appointments at more convenient times

We recognise that sometimes it is not easy to see us during working hours.

Extended access service

The aim of the service is to offer a greater range of appointments for routine problems. The types of problems that can be seen by the extended access service are similar to those that can be pre-booked during normal working hours.

There are a limited number of GP, Nurse, Health Care Assistant and Phlebotomy appointments available.

Extended access opening hours

Mondays: 07:00-08:00. and 18:30- 20:00

Extended access booking

Appointments for the extended access service are booked by calling reception on 0113 393 0119.

We work in partnership with neighbouring surgeries to offer increased access to primary care services. Our area ‘Hub’ is located at Rutland Lodge Medical Centre on Scott Hall Road. At present this mainly provides Saturday morning surgeries, but this is expected to expand over time.

MORE EVENING AND SATURDAY APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE NOW!

Evening appointments

There are now extra routine appointments available in the evening, making it easier for you to get an appointment at a time to suit you.

The practice offers:

A virtual clinical pharmacist service

This is a telephone appointment for patients who: need to speak to a pharmacist regarding a medication issue; but don’t need to come to the surgery. The pharmacists are able to prescribe and organise prescriptions electronically.

A virtual musculoskeletal (MSK) service

This is a telephone appointment for patients who need to speak to an advanced physiotherapist regarding muscle and joint problems. They will issue advice and where appropriate arrange a follow up.

For either of the above please speak to the reception team for further information on how to book one of these appointments.

A virtual mental health support service (Healthy Minds)
This is a telephone appointment for patients aged 18 and over who would like help with emotional wellbeing. It will provide a 20minute telephone consultation with Healthy Minds Practitioners who will be able to offer support for patients experiencing low mood, stress or anxiety. They will offer support, explore and develop coping strategies and offer signposting and recommend other support services.
