Use the 111 coronavirus service if you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home, your condition gets worse, your symptoms do not get better after 7 days. For more general information see https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public

Our GP appointments are routinely by telephone.  If the doctor needs to see you he will arrange a video or face to face appointment.  Please ensure we have your up to date mobile and email contacts.  A face covering or mask must be worn when coming into the building and during your appointment.  You can also use the link on our home page to access E Consult.

When We Are Closedtelephone_brown

Between 18:30 and 08:00, at weekends and bank holidays, a local out-of-hours service is provided by Local Care Direct.  This service provides medical services for urgent medical problems that can not wait until the Surgery is next open.  The out-of-hours telephone number is 111.  This service is provided by Yorkshire Ambulance Service. 

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.  

We have formed the Pudsey Locality Hub with local practices.  The Hub is based at The Gables Surgery, 231 Swinnow Road, Pudsey LS28 9AW and is open:

Monday to Friday 6pm - 8pm

Saturday 8am - 2pm

Sunday 8am - 12 noon.
