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.

Appointments

We currently offer a number of ways to see a doctor:

Advanced Booking

Most of our appointments may be booked in advance. We must point out that demand for these pre-bookable appointments are high and often go quickly. These appointments can be booked either online, over the phone or at reception

Emergency Book on Day Appointments

These are for patients who feel their condition cannot wait and who need to see a GP the same day. We advise that you ring as soon as possible after 08:30 in the morning as we have limited appointments available.

Emergency Drop-in Clinics

There will be an Emergency drop-in clinic at Milnsbridge on a Monday morning between 08:30 and 10:30. These will be held on a Tuesday if there is a bank holiday. These appointments are 5 minutes long for one acute problem only and can be booked on the day by either telephone or at reception.

Please note these appointments are not for pre-existing conditions which will need a longer appointment

Telephone Consultations

It may be that you only wish to discuss something with the doctor and this may be dealt with in a telephone consultation. Please make this clear when you ring the surgery so that the doctor can call you back. Please be ready to give the receptionist a little information for the doctor and to have an up-to-date telephone number for him/her to phone you back on.

Extended Hours

Saturday morning and Monday evening clinics are available each month at New Street Surgery. These appointments are pre-bookable.

Cancellations

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us at least 30 minutes before you are due to attend in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
