Our opening hours from 20th March 2023: Monday to Friday 8am - 6pm
Message to all patients
It is fact that NHS staff at GP surgeries are facing increasing levels of abuse from patients. A recent poll by the body that represents GP surgery staff across the UK, found that 75% of staff face some sort of abuse every day.
This increase in abuse comes alongside a huge increase in demand for GP services for their patients.
Our staff provide a professional and friendly service to all patients. The increasing levels of challenge and abuse mentioned above will inevitably have a knock-on effect to all patients as we may find that the team are not as kind and forgiving as once they were. We know most of our patients are kind and courteous but every day our staff receive inappropriate behaviour from some patients (including sarcasm, emotional blackmail, swearing, shouting etc).
Our staff are doing their best under the circumstances, please be kind to our staff, they are only doing their job.

Type 1 opt-out: medical records held at your GP practice - You can tell your GP practice if you do not want your confidential patient information held in your GP medical record to be used for purposes other than your individual care. This is commonly called a type 1 opt-out. This opt-out request can only be recorded by your GP practice. Please fill and return this form to the surgery Type 1 Opt Out form
Type 2 opt-out: information held by NHS Digital - Previously you could tell your GP practice if you did not want us, NHS Digital, to share confidential patient information that we collect from across the health and care service for purposes other than your individual care. This was called a type 2 opt-out. The type 2 opt-out was replaced by the national data opt-out. Type 2 opt-outs recorded on or before 11 October 2018 have been automatically converted to national data opt-outs.

The Armley Hub
From 1st October 2022 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 on Saturdays 08.00 – 14.00 and it runs from Priory View Medical Centre. 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 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. For more information about the Armley Hub click here

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.
