CQC overall rating
If you are aged between 60 and 74 you might have received a bowel cancer screening kit in the post.
We would encourage people to take part in this because it aims to detect cancer before symptoms show which then gives treatment the best chance of working. The link below contains some useful information about the test. If you have lost your sample kit, you can request another by ringing 0800 7076060.
We are open!
Coronavirus has led to a number of changes for our practice but we’re very much open and seeing patients.
To help keep everyone safe and to minimise the risk of infection, we’re currently doing most consultations by phone or video; however, if we need to see you, then we will ask you to come to the surgery or arrange a home visit.
We’re also carrying out routine and preventative care such as cervical screening tests, children’s immunisations and reviews for people with existing health conditions. If you receive a reminder about any of these, please make an appointment – you’ll be seen in a safe environment.
The quickest and simplest way to let us know what you require is to use our e consult service. See above.

NHS UK COVID guidance
We are trying to protect the health and safety of our staff and patients. This means we will refuse entry to our practice if you have symptoms of coronavirus.
We have a zero tolerance approach to aggression or abuse against our staff and patients. Please be kind to our staff in these difficult times.
Extended Opening Hours
In order to run evening and weekend GP clinics, the practices in South and East Leeds have joined together to open ‘Hubs’ that make the best use of the limited resources available for these kinds of services. By running clinics from fewer locations we are able to offer more appointments than if each practice opened in the evenings and on weekends.
Hub appointments are available:
Monday to Friday 6.30pm to 8pm
Saturday 8am to 2pm
Sunday 8am to Midday
To book an appointment please contact your GP practice.
To access a routine GP appointment during the Out of Hours period, Monday to Friday, 6.30pm to 8pm, Saturdays 8am to 2pm, and Sundays 8am to midday, please call 0113 206 2049. Do not call this number outside of these hours as you will be unable to book an appointment
Our local hub is at Seacroft Hospital (outpatients building): through the main entrance to the hospital grounds, take the first right before the Pay and Display car park, and its 50 yards on the left. Please report to the main reception which is immediately on the right through the front entrance.
Electronic Prescription Service (EPS)
We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) which will mean that almost all our prescriptions will be processed electronically from 11 August 2020
Electronic prescriptions help save the NHS money.
You will receive your prescriptions in the same way as you do now.
Read more about EPS on the NHS website.
First Contact Physiotherapist (FCP)
Patients can now book an appointment with the FCP on a Tuesday morning.
FCP's will become the first point of contact for patients presenting with musculoskeletal conditions. they provide advice and exercise programmes, and decide on the most appropriate management pathway, which may include investigations, onward referral for physiotherapy treatment or orthopaedic appointments.
For more information or to book an appointment please ask at reception
All patients registered at the practice have a named GP who is responsible for their overall care at the practice.
If you wish to know who your named GP is please contact the practice.
If you have preference as to which GP is your named GP we will make reasonable efforts to accomodate this request.
Although you have a named GP you can see any GP at the practice.
