MORE EVENING AND SATURDAY APPOINTMENTS AVAILABLE NOW!

Evening appointments

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.

 

 

 

 

 

Overseas Travel

departure_boardTravelling abroad is so common these days that it is often easy to forget the necessary precautions.  Consult our practice nurses at least three months before departure.  They will advise you what vaccinations and medicines you may need. 

Make sure that you have adequate health insurance.  If you are visiting an EEC country you will need a European Health Insurance Card (EHIC).  Application forms are available at Post Offices or apply by telephone to the NHSBSA EHIC Line on 0845 606 2030 or you can complete your application ‘on-line’ at http://www.ehic.org.uk/

Take a small first-aid kit with you and beware of bites from insects and animals as many diseases are insect-borne and rabies is widespread.  Be careful with raw vegetables, salads, fruit, shellfish and ice-cubes. 

Respect the power of the sun!  Use suncreams regularly (at least Factor 25 for children) and wear a hat.

Sexually transmitted diseases (including AIDS) are a major health threat throughout the world.  Condoms offer some protection. 

If your doctor advises you to take anti-malarial tablets remember that you need to start taking them one or two weeks before departure and continue until four weeks after your return.  These tablets are available from a Pharmacy and are essential if you are traveling to areas where malaria is present.  Please note that any medications prescribed for holiday use are only available on private prescription.
