Booking an appointment

To book an appointment you must contact us. An appointment must have been booked in advance of visiting the extended hours service. You can contact our practice by telephone on 0113 221 3510. Ask us for more details if you’d like to go online to book/cancel appointments in the future as well ordering repeat prescriptions.

Please note that when you book an appointment the practice will ask you for consent to share your detailed GP record with the clinician providing the care.

Should you need to cancel your appointment please contact us. Remember if you no longer need your appointment, please cancel it so someone else can have it.

Please be aware that this is not a walk-in service – you must have an appointment.

Who and where will you be seen?

Evening and weekend appointments are likely to be in one of the hubs and not necessarily at your usual GP practice. Your GP practice will be able to advise you where you need to be when you book your appointment.

Please be aware that appointments booked at the hubs providing evening and/or weekend appointments will be with a GP, practice nurse or other appropriate healthcare professional who works on behalf of all the local GP practices. This may mean that you have an appointment with a GP, practice nurse or other appropriate healthcare professional who does not usually work for your usual GP practice, but you will still receive the same level of care.

All the GPs and nurses 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 or nurse at your usual GP practice.

Need to see a primary care professional urgently? Call NHS 111

Call NHS 111 if you think you need to be urgently seen by a GP, practice nurse or other healthcare professional. The trained advisor for NHS 111 will carry out a telephone assessment and, if needed, will book you an appointment with an out-of-hours GP service.

Extended hours appointments are for routine general practice issues and not for urgent care.  If urgent care is required please call NHS111 for advice.

About the service

NHS Leeds CCG is committed to improving access to primary care services and is working closely with the Leeds GP Confederation to make this happen. This includes making appointments available at times that are convenient to patients.

The CCG has arranged for additional appointments to be provided outside of normal GP practice hours by the Leeds GP Confederation.

The service offers pre-bookable, routine primary care appointments with a range of clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants.

How do we use your information to run evening and weekend services?

In order to run evening and weekend GP clinics, the 37 practices in Leeds West have joined together to open ‘Hubs’ that make the best use of the limited resources available for these kinds of services. By running clinics from fewer locations we are able to offer more appointments than if each practice opened in the evenings and on weekends.

For all practices to be able to book appointments for their patients at these Hubs we use a dedicated clinical system called SystmOne to host an appointment book which all participating GP practices can access to book appointments for their patients. GP’s at the Hub use this system to help them locate the patients medical records on our practice clinical system which they access for the purpose of providing care during the appointment the patient has booked in an evening or weekend clinic at the Hub.

This requires us sharing the following patient information on the Hub appointment booking system:

  • Name
  • Date of Birth
  • Contact Telephone Number
  • Registered Practice

Help us, help you by sharing this information

We’d be grateful if you could help us, help you by ensuring your family, friends and any other contacts are aware of the improved availability of appointments. Please do share this webpage with people you know.

Primary Care Networks (PCN)

A primary care network is a group of practices who work together to focus on local patient care. They’ve been around since 2019 and 99 per cent of practices across England now work as part of one.

With increased demand and a shortage of clinical staff, practices find they can provide greater, more personalised care for patients when they can work together on certain services or issues.

Woodhouse Medical Practice is part of Chapeltown PCN, working with Allerton and Westfield Medical Centre and St Martin’s Practice.

Maternity Services


You can book an appointment with the midwife via the reception desk on 0113 221 3510.

The role of the midwife

A midwife is a qualified nurse who has undertaken further training to provide and promote normal midwifery.

They help you to prepare for motherhood and promote good health for yourself and your baby by advising on the effects of drinking, smoking and good diet whilst you are pregnant.

The midwife guides you through your pregnancy and endeavours to detect any problems and make relevant referrals if necessary.

First appointment with the midwife

If you are pregnant you do not need to see the Dr in order to have your first appointment with the midwife.

You can arrange a booking appointment via the reception desk. This first appointment should be at about 9 weeks of pregnancy.

Due date calculator

The Midwife will discuss your options for delivery, arrange appropriate referrals and provide you with dietary advice.

She will also take blood tests and will subsequently discuss the results with you. Whilst you are pregnant and until your baby is one year old you are entitled to free prescriptions and dental treatment. The Midwife will organise for an exemption certificate to be signed and sent off.

During The Pregnancy

Your maternity book lists when you will be seen by the Midwife, Doctor and hospital through your pregnancy. Should you have any concerns at any other time you can contact your midwife or, if she is not available, make an appointment to see a Doctor during normal surgery hours.

At some point during the course of your pregnancy, the Health Visitor will meet you to talk to you about her role in your care and about the childhood vaccination programme.

After Your Birth

After delivery, your Midwife will visit you at home to help you and your baby. Following the birth, she will visit you on your first day at home. When your baby is five days old she will carry out the Guthrie test (which is a special screening test that the Midwife will give you information about) and at ten days old she will discharge you and your baby from her care. Extra visits may be arranged according to need.

Your Health Visitor will visit you at home when your baby is between 10 and 14 days old and can advise on feeding, weaning and any family issues you may have.

About 6 weeks after your birth you should make an appointment to see your doctor to discuss contraception and any concerns you have about your own health.


It takes time for you and your baby to learn how to breastfeed.

The NHS Choices page on breast feeding might be useful.

Your midwife can also offer support and advice.

There are also a number of national services offering local support groups, which can be accessed via their websites:

Social Prescribing Service

The term ‘social prescribing’ is used to describe a service which supports people to access a range of non-medical services and activities in their local area.

Social prescribing can help people with different social, emotional or practical needs to find the right support and improve their health and wellbeing.

The service can help you:

  • Get support to improve your physical health.
  • Find employment or volunteering opportunities or learn a new skill.
  • Tackle money, housing, work or benefits issues.
  • Cope with a particular condition or difficulty.
  • Access ways of improving your emotional wellbeing such as befriending schemes, peer support or arts and leisure activities.

Our local service is run by Patient Empowerment Project (PEP).

To make an appointment please contact them on 0113 279 5870 or email

Advocacy Services

Advocacy means helping another person to communicate their views and wishes.


GPs often act as advocates for patients when dealing with issues in the hospital or by making sure that their patients’ and/or families’ voices are heard when a decision is needed about their care.

Advocacy involves looking at choices together and helping patients to make decisions. It may be writing a letter of support or communicating on behalf of the patient.

When advocates who are not part of social services or the NHS are needed, they can be found in Leeds at:



For general advice about bereavement you might find the NHS choices article on bereavement useful.

The Leeds Bereavement Forum collates allot of information on the services available in Leeds.

In person

There are also several organisations and charities that provide specialist advice and support to those that have been bereaved:
