EXTENDED ACCESS CLINICS
 

Extended Access evening and weekend appointments now available

Patients can now see a local GP, Physio and Phlebotomist for routine appointments on weekday evenings and at weekends. Pre-bookable and on-the-day appointments are available between 6.30pm and 8.30pm each weekday, with additional slots available on Saturdays and Sundays between 8.45am and 5.15pm.

Appointments for all three services are available for any Greater Huddersfield patient in the Primary Care Centre hub at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary and some physio appointments are also available in Holmfirth and Armitage Bridge.

How to book an evening or weekend appointment at the HUB:

You can also book an evening or weekend appointment by ringing the practice on: 01484 651622/666050. If you need to book an appointment when the practice is closed then you can ring the free NHS 111 phone line out of normal working hours and they will book an appointment for you if appropriate.

Specific or additional opening times for Extended Access Services over the Christmas and New Year period will be shared with practices directly by Local Care Direct/MHH.

Are You A Carer

Are you a Carer or do you have a Carer?


A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.


Are you one of them? You may see it as part of your life or duty to care - many carers do not always recognise themselves as carers.


There are around seven million carers in the UK - that is one in ten people. This is rising. Three in five people will be carers at some point in their lives in the UK.


Being a carer can affect your health.


There are many times when you need advice, information or some extra help.


We at the surgery want to help but it’s not always easy to remember to ask who is a carer - please help us by letting us know and we will add the information to your record.


For help and advice you can also contact Carers Count on
