GP practices in Calderdale have joined forces to offer urgent GP appointments on Saturdays until 25 April as part of a scheme to help people get the right care, in the right place.
If you need to see a GP on a Saturday with something urgent that can’t wait, then ring NHS 111 to speak to a specially trained advisor. The advisor will talk to you about your health problem and confirm whether a GP appointment is the most appropriate service for your needs.
Not every practice will be open – five “hubs” operate in the area every Saturday, offering urgent appointments to anyone registered with a GP practice in the Calderdale area.
With your consent, the doctors, nurses and practice staff working at the centres will be able to access your medical records. They will be able to see what medicines you are taking and any other information about your medical history that will help them provide you with the best care.
Appointments can only be made by contacting NHS 111 on a Saturday.
The scheme finishes on 25 April – after this date patients will still be able to access usual urgent care services by contacting NHS 111.
