CHANGE TO EASTER OPENING TIMES

Due to the COVID19 outbreak - we will still be here for you over Easter.

The practice will be open on both Good Friday (April 10) and Easter Monday (April 13).

Phone lines will be open from 8am until 6pm to ensure that any urgent needs can be responded to by an appropriate practice clinician.

Please do remember you should not attend the practice without an appointment, as you will not be seen.

If you need to contact us, please do so by ringing the normal practice telephone number.

For the rest of the weekend, the extended hours 'GP Care Wakefield' service is running as usual between 9am and 3pm. To access the service, patients should ring the usual practice number to be redirected to a trained clinician who can assess their issue and arrange a telephone consultation, or appointment locally, if needed.

As you will be able to appreciate, this is an unprecedented time where our staff are extremely busy. Your cooperation, understanding and patience are therefore greatly appreciated.
