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!
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.
Saturday morning face to face appointments
There are now Saturday morning routine appointments from 9-12pm available through our extended access service at:
Rutland Lodge Medical Practice, Scott Hall Road, Leeds, LS7 3DR
This increased availability is an extension of the services offered by your practice and is provided by a range of local clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants.
Please note, this is NOT a walk-in service – you still need to make an appointment via your own GP practice. Extended Access appointments are for routine general practice issues and not for urgent care.
If your practice is closed and you are unwell please call NHS 111.
