Reason for Your Appointment

To ensure you are seen by the most appropriate clinician and reduce delays, our reception staff will ask you the reason for the appointment when you call. Please do not be offended when the receptionist asks you for a few details about your problem, this information is treated in the strictest confidence and our trained staff will then arrange an appointment that best suits your needs.

Routine GP Appointments

We offer ‘routine’ appointments with a GP which can be booked by phone, using e-consult or online up to four weeks in advance. Appointments with a GP are for 10 minutes only and are restricted to the purpose for which the appointment was originally booked.

Urgent GP Appointments

Some ‘same day’ appointment slots are available for urgent cases where the patient needs to be seen quickly. There is always a Duty Doctor available during these hours to assess patients with urgent needs. Please call the surgery first thing in the morning if you need an urgent appointment.

Saturday Appointments

A limited number of GP appointments are now available on Saturday mornings between 09.30 – 11.30 at the local ‘Extended Hours Hub’ at Aireborough Family Practice at Silver Lane Surgery, 1 Suffolk Court, Silver Lane, Yeadon LS19 7JN. Please note that these appointments can only be booked via a Receptionist and are not available online.

Telephone Consultations

We offer consultations by telephone for a Doctor or Nurse to answer quick queries from patients which do not require a face-to-face conversation. Telephone appointments with Pharmacists, Mental Health practitioners and Physiotherapists are available 7 days a week including bank holidays. Please note that these consultations can only be booked by telephone. We will try to give you a time slot for the doctor to call, so please ensure you are available to take the call.

Out-of-Hours Service

The local out-of-hours service also has capacity to see people at home. This is accessed via calling 111 or NHS111 online.
