Primary Care - caring for your general health

Primary Care - caring for your general health

General Practitioner Primary Care services are changing in the way they treat patients and in the way patients access them.

Local Care Direct is continuously adapting, using new ideas and new technologies to improve patient care and partnering with other organisations to build a strong vision of the future.


Local Care Direct operates the following Centre:

King Street Walk In Centre, Wakefield

This walk-in service is well established within the local health economy and popular with residents of Wakefield district. With prescribing Advanced Nurse Practitioners we can see a wide range of semi-acute presenting conditions and minor illnesses.  This acts as the step in between a patient’s own registered GP and the Accident & Emergency department.
