When We Are Closed
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
How do I book a GP appointment at the Hub?
You book appointments for the Hub in exactly the same way you would book a normal GP appointment, simply ring the surgery and you can book an appointment with the Receptionist. At the weekend the surgery phone line will be redirected to The Hub so you do not need to ring a different number, simply call your own GP practice and you will be automatically diverted to The Hub. Appointments at the Hub are pre bookable and available on the day
The way you access health care information, advice and services on the telephone is changing. Over the next few months the 0845 4647 service is being replaced by NHS 111 in England.
You should call the NHS 111 service if you need medical help fast, but it’s not a 999 emergency.
You will be assessed, given advice and directed straightaway to the local service that can help you best. Calls to NHS 111 are free from landlines and mobile phones.
Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
