For information on the coronavirus outbreak please go to the page on coronavirus on NHS.UK or the information on Gov.uk
We have now moved to a full Telephone Triage Appointment following NATIONAL and LOCAL guidance to protect staff and patients. Due to the Corona Virus outbreak, if you need an appointment, you will be given a telephone appointment and the GP will contact you to discuss your symptoms and ask you screening questions. If necessary they will then ask you to either come to the surgery if they need to examine you or arrange a video consultation. All routine non-essential GP appointments are now cancelled until further notice
In line with recent guidance we are asking patients to wear their own face coverings or face masks when entering the surgery for a face to face appointment. This is to help keep coronavirus transmission rates down and to protect staff and other patients. Thank you
Extended Access Services (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 at Seacroft Hospital, Outpatients Department, LS14 6UH
Monday to Friday 6.30pm to 8pm
Saturday 8am to 2pm
Sunday 8am to Midday
To pre book an appointment at the Hub please contact us on 0113 2645455 (Manston) / 0113 2645414 (Scholes)
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 2062049. DO NOT CALL THIS NUMBER OUTSIDE OF THESE HOURS AS YOU WILL BE UNABLE TO BOOK AN APPOINTMENT.

Worried someone close to you is losing their memory?
Many people suffer from memory loss as they get older. But if it starts to happen on a regular basis, it could be the early signs of dementia.
What should I look for?
Dementia is not a single illness but a group of symptoms caused by damage to the brain. The symptoms include:
- memory loss, such as remembering past events much more easily than recent ones
- problems thinking or reasoning, or finding it hard to follow conversations or TV programmes
- feeling anxious, depressed or angry about memory loss, or feeling confused, even when in a familiar environment
What should I do?
If you’re worried about someone who is showing the signs above, encourage them to visit their GP to get a proper diagnosis. Use the link at the top of the page to find your GP.
The Alzheimer’s Society provides tips on how to raise the topic of dementia with a loved one.
