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.

 

 

 

 

 

Appointments

pen_on_diaryWe operate an appointment system for all surgeries; some of our doctors' appointments are available to book up to 4 weeks in advance. Nurses and Health Care Assistant appointments can be booked further in advance if required.

We release approximately 15% of doctors appointments for advance booking at the beginning of each month; a further 15% of appointments are released on a Monday morning for the following week. The remainder of the appointments are released each morning and can be booked for the same day; we always ensure that anyone needing to see a doctor urgently will be seen, or assessed by telephone the same day.  

An appointment can be made by telephoning the surgery, coming to the reception desk or booking on line.

Please note that all appointments are for one person only. Some of the appointments are to discuss one problem only to help the doctor from running late when patients need to discuss more than one medical issue. 

You are free to choose which doctor you see; just ask when making the appointment.  However, if a doctor has started treating you it is better to continue seeing that doctor until your treatment has finished.

Telephone Advice

You may phone the surgery during working hours and ask to speak to a doctor or a nurse.  You may be asked to ring back later as the doctors and nurses cannot take telephone calls when they are seeing a patient.  Receptionists may be able to deal with some queries or advise on the best time to speak to a doctor. Alternatively, you may send a request for a telephone call via our home page on this website.
