Extended Hours Service
We are open on Easter Friday and Monday. Help protect patients and our staff by using our online service eConsult, which is available 24:7, just go to online services to get started. eConsult is a service for patients wanting to contact the GP for medical or administrative issues. You will get a response by the end of the next working day. Avoid calling the practice as our phone lines are busy. Simply use eConsult and avoid the queue. Thank you.
When the surgery is closed you can telephone 111 which is the NHS service to assist you with access to urgent local health services.
Alternatively ring the usual surgery number and you will then automatically be transferred to the out-of-hours service.
The nearest walk-in centre is Clayton Hospital, Northgate, Wakefield WF1 3JS.
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.
On one half day per month (usually a Tuesday afternoon) the doctors can attend useful training sessions or seminars together. There are no GP sessions during this time.
The surgery will close during the lunchtime period for staff training or meetings.
If you need medical assistance during this time please dial 111. Calls to the NHS 111 service are free. If you have a life threatening emergency please dial 999.
