When your GP surgery is closed you want to know that you’ll still get the care you need if you have an urgent health problem.
Working in partnership with the NHS111 service in the Yorkshire and Humber region, we provide specialist urgent care services for West Yorkshire and the Craven district of North Yorkshire. In fact, we are looking after you for 115 hours every week, that’s more than your own GP.
If you need to see a GP in the evening, at weekends or on bank holidays you’ll either visit one of our easily accessible centres or, if appropriate, one of our doctors may come and visit you at home.
In a lot of cases our doctors can support you over the phone with advice or by referring you to another service more appropriate to your needs.
A lot of the clinicians you meet in out of hours are doctors who work in surgeries like your own with the same training, qualifications and experience as your own GP. Even though you only need them rarely their aim is to provide a safe, high quality service for you.
In the Leeds area, if you have a minor injury, we operate minor injuries units at Wharfedale Hospital in Otlety and the St George’s Centre in Middleton. These are walk-in services that treat a range of minor ailments and injuries so you dont have to go to A&E. They are not for emergencies.
