(*closing times may vary)
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.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
Saturday and Sunday morning face to face appointments
There are now routine appointments available on Saturday and Sunday morning from 9am-12pm available through our extended access service at:
– Rutland Lodge Medical Practice, Scott Hall Road, Leeds, LS7 3DR (Harrogate Road Patients)
– Bellbrooke Surgery, Bellbrooke Avenue, Harehills, Leeds LS9 6AU (Milan Street Patients)
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. Appointments can be made in advance via telephoning reception at 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.
Also the Extended Access service offers other three services in the evening and the weekend:
– Clinical pharmacist
– 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. Please speak to the Reception team for further information on how to book an appointment
