Saturday surgeries are held on alternate weeks and are for pre-booked appointments only.
Please always check at reception as times may be subject to change.
Evening and Weekend GP Appointments
GP practices across Wakefield are now offering weekend and evening appointments.
The new GP Care Wakefield scheme enables patients across the district to have access to GP support after normal practice hours.
This enables patients to have access to medical advice and if required, access to a Wakefield GP appointment, through their normal GP practice telephone number between:
18:00 and 22:00 Monday to Friday
09:00 and 15:00 Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays
Patients who use the service will be provided with medical advice from a dedicated nursing team, who can then refer them to a GP appointment that day, if required, at one of two sites across the district.

The practice will be closed on the following dates from 12 noon until the next working day as normal:
