This year, the recommended over 65 flu vaccine is being provided by one supplier/manufacturer. Therefore flu clinics have been timed to coincide with our flu deliveries which are outside our control.

There are no further drop in clinics for this age cohort. If you require flu vaccination, please contact reception to book or if you have another appointment ask the nurse if they can administer it while you are in the surgery.

SURGERY CLOSURE - TRAINING AFTERNOON
The practice will be closed from 12.00 pm on Thursday 22 November 2018 for staff training. This applies to all surgeries under North Leeds CCG.
If you need to see or speak to a doctor during this time cover is provided by the GP Out of Hours Service, please call 111 for non urgent medical assistance. If you have a medical emergency such as chest pain, breathing difficulties etc please call 999.
Click here to view our practice area, once open please input your postcode where indicated and press 'check if postcode is in catchment area'. If your postcode is not in our practice area, you will need to register at another GP surgery.
From 2015, practices could allow patients who live or move outside of the practice area, to register as an out of area patient and patients could be seen at any GP who participated in the scheme. This is a voluntary scheme to which the practice does not have to participate.
Due to the number of new housing developments within our practice area, we have decided not to participate in the voluntary scheme in order to ensure that we offer the best possible service to patients within our area. Unfortunately this means that patients, who live or move outside our practice boundary, will be asked to find a new GP or be removed by Primary Care Support England if they suspect a patient has moved.
Accountable/Named GP For All Patients
The Practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP (identified as your usual GP on your medical records).
Please note there is no need to telephone the Practice, it is for information only. Please feel free to ask the reception staff when you next visit the Surgery of who your named doctor is.
Our named Accountable GP's at the Practice are Dr G Harrison, Dr H Turner, Dr L Boyle, Dr I Shaikh & Dr Mawer.
Where a patient expresses a preference as to which GP they have been assigned, the Practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Having a Name Accountable GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the Practice.
