Funding cut from 1st April 2017

Since December 2014 we have been providing additional appointments, both within normal hours and extended hours over 12 hours per weekday – from 7:30am to 7:30pm.
Unfortunately, Leeds West CCG has withdrawn funding for this service from all practices as from 1st April 2017. Our practice will lose over £91 000 of income per year. This has meant that we have had to make some redundancies and leave posts unfilled when clinicians and admin staff have left.
We are reverting to the number of appointments that were available in 2014. Although you may find it more difficult to get an appointment, please rest assured that we will be trying to see those patients with most pressing need within a reasonable timescale.
Please use our website to find information to help yourself.
You may find it more convenient to view information about your condition online or arrange an electronic consultation or telephone consultation if you think that you won’t need to be examined.
The CCG has arranged for some evening appointments to be available at the local Pudsey Hub (Gables Surgery), but there will be only two appointments per weekday evening for our patients.
