- You can book online, by telephone or in person. By default appointments will be face to face. Please ask when booking if you would prefer the appointment to be over the telephone.
- Please make one appointment for each member of the family who needs to be seen.
- We try to keep to time but please be patient if someone before you takes longer than planned.
- Appointments are ten minute slots. If you have a complicated problem, or more than one problem, please ask for a longer appointment.
- We recommend you try and see your usual Doctor for continuity, but you can choose to see any doctor.
Non-urgent advice: Help us help you
If you are not able to attend your appointment please let us know as soon as possible. This allows the appointment to be used by someone else. If you are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment you may be asked to re-book.
Extended opening hours
- We offer weekday late and weekend appointments at Ireland Wood Surgery. These appointments cannot be booked online. Book by speaking to High Field Surgery reception.
- If you feel that your problem is medically urgent we will try and fit you in to see a doctor on the same day. The receptionist may put you in touch with one of the doctors so that your condition can be assessed.
- Doctors are available for telephone advice, by booking a telephone appointment. If you need to speak with a doctor for another reason, you can leave a message with the receptionist. Call 0113 295 3600
Non-urgent advice: Dental Problem?
Unfortunately we are unable to help if you have a dental problem and so we will ask you to see your dentist. If you are looking for dental care the NHS website can help you find a NHS dentist. For urgent Dental Care please call 111 for the NHS 111 service.
Non-urgent advice: Out of Hours
Out of Hours
The Out Of Hours Service operates Monday to Friday between 6.00pm and 8.00am. Also on Weekends, Bank Holidays and staff training days. Please ring the surgery on 0113 295 3600 if you are unsure if we are closed.
The NHS 111 service is there for when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. When the practice is closed you will hear an answer phone message advising you to ring 111. This is how you access the GP out of hours service. We cannot transfer calls to 111 as patients would incur phone costs because ringing 111 is a free call.
When to use it
You need medical help or advice but it’s not a life-threatening situation. Call 111 if:
You need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency.
You think you need to go to A&E or need another NHS urgent care service.
You don’t know who to call or you don’t have a GP to call.
You need health information or reassurance about what to do next.
For less urgent health needs, contact your GP or local pharmacist in the usual way.
For immediate, life-threatening emergencies, continue to call 999.
How does it work?
The NHS 111 service has a team of fully trained advisers, supported by experienced nurses. They will ask you questions to assess your symptoms. Then give you the healthcare advice you need or direct you to the local service that can help you best. That could be A&E, an out-of-hours doctor, a walk-in centre or urgent care centre, a community nurse, an emergency dentist or a late-opening chemist.
Where possible, the NHS 111 team will book you an appointment or transfer you to the people you need to speak to. If you need an ambulance the NHS 111 team will arrange this.
All West Yorkshire Out Of Hours calls for General Practice are dealt with via NHS 111. Patients needing further clinical assessment by a doctor are transferred to Local Care Direct.
