Extended Access Appointments
Posted on 6 Nov 2018
MORE EVENING AND SATURDAY APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE NOW!
There are now extra routine appointments available in the evening, making it easier for you to get an appointment at a time to suit you.
The practice offers:
A virtual clinical pharmacist service
This is a telephone appointment for patients who: need to speak to a pharmacist regarding a medication issue; but don’t need to come to the surgery. The pharmacists are able to prescribe and organise prescriptions electronically.
A virtual musculoskeletal (MSK) service
This is a telephone appointment for patients who need to speak to an advanced physiotherapist regarding muscle and joint problems. They will issue advice and where appropriate arrange a follow up.
For either of the above please speak to the reception team for further information on how to book one of these appointments.
Saturday morning face to face appointments
There are now Saturday morning routine appointments from 9-12pm available through our extended access service at:
Rutland Lodge Medical Practice, Scott Hall Road, Leeds, LS7 3DR
This increased availability is an extension of the services offered by your practice and is provided by a range of local clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants.
Please note, this is not a walk-in service – you still need to make an appointment via your own GP practice. Extended Access appointments are for routine general practice issues and not for urgent care. If your practice is closed and you are unwell please call NHS 111.
