Update 29/1/2019 3.30pm
Our phone lines are back to normal having been fixed by our telecoms provider. We sincerely apologise for all the inconvenience this has caused our patients.
Our normal opening hours:
Monday, Wednesday - Friday 8am - 6pm
Tuesday 7am - 6pm
In addition, the Armley HUB based at Priory View Medical Centre provides limited appointments outside of our normal surgery hours - see below.
The Armley Hub
From December 2016 if you need to see a GP but can’t attend the surgery through the week you can book an appointment at the Armley Hub.
Routine appointments are available to prebook via our Hub service between 07.00-08.00 on weekdays, 08.00 – 14.00 on Saturdays and 08.00 – 12.00 on Sundays. For urgent appointments, the service does also offer same day appointments. To access these appointments please ring the practice as normal. If the surgery is closed a divert is in place to direct patients to the Hub directly during its operational hours.
The Hub runs from Priory View Medical Centre.
The Hub was designed to provide better access for patients who struggle to attend the practice through the working week, and involves a group of practices from the local area. All patients from this group of practices can book appointments at the Hub, and you will be seen by a GP who works on behalf of the local practices. This may mean that you have an appointment with a GP who does not usually work for your local practice, but who will be able to give you the same level of care. All of the GPs working in the Hub will be able to access all the necessary information about you to give you the highest level of care and the process will be exactly the same as you would receive from a GP Monday to Friday. Please remember: The Hub is an extension of General Practice as a way to provide more GP appointments to the local population

Named Accountable GP
From the 1st of April 2015, the practice is required under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a “named accountable GP”. This GP has responsibility for the co-ordination of all appropriate services required under the contract and ensure they are delivered to each of their patients where required, based on the GP’s clinical judgement.
If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
Please inform us if you wish to change your “named accountable GP”.
Friends and Family Test
From 1 December 2014, if you visit our GP surgery you will be asked about whether or not you would recommend our surgery to your family and friends, if they need similar treatment or care. For more info Click here.
