What to do when the surgery is closed

If you require urgent advice or a home visit when the surgery is closed then please telephone 111. You will be assessed, given advice and directed to the local service that can help you best; this includes the Kirklees Out Of Hours GP Service.

Please remember that Accident and Emergency and the 999 ambulance service are for life threatening emergencies and severe injuries only. If your problem isn’t life threatening but you need urgent medical advice or help then it is best to call 111.

For less urgent health needs then contact the surgery during normal working hours, your local pharmacist in the usual way or look at the self-help page for useful health information and links.

Extended Access (appointments outside of the normal surgery opening times)

A new Scheme called “Extended Access” offers all eligible patients the possibility of an evening or weekend appointment at The Primary Care Hub at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary.

In the Hub there are appointments not only to see a local HP but also a phlebotomist or physiotherapist.

If you are interested in booking an appointment for outside the normal surgery hours then telephone 01484 303366, or when the practice is closed then telephone NHS 111. Please note however, that there is an eligibility criterion to be seen in the Hub therefore not all patients will be offered an appointment


They offer free professional health advice and you don’t need an appointment. They can help you with coughs and colds, aches and pains, advice about prescribed and over-the-counter medicines. They may also suggest that you see your doctor for more serious symptoms.
