Evening & Weekend Appointments in North Kirklees

Nobody chooses when to get ill. That’s why patients need access to healthcare professionals outside of regular working hours.

In North Kirklees, GP practices work together to make evening and weekend appointments available for those who need them 365 days of the year.

If you are unable to attend a weekday daytime appointment, then an appointment in the evening or at the weekend can be offered to you.

Booking your evening or weekend appointment is simple and starts with speaking with the reception at your registered GP practice. 

Appointment times are between 6.30pm and 9.30pm each weekday, with additional slots available on Saturdays from 9am until 4pm and Sundays from 9am until 1pm. We are also open on Bank Holidays from 10am until 2pm.

You can also ring 01924 925517 during the service opening hours to book an appointment.

The service covers the whole of North Kirklees, and anybody who is already registered in a North Kirklees practice can book into the ‘Extended Access’ service – your practice receptionist can find a slot to suit you.

We currently have 3 Extended Access Centres in North Kirklees: (Please note these sites are not ‘Walk-in Centres’)

Once your appointment is booked, you can attend the centre and seek advice from a GP or from an Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP) who is able to conduct health assessments, suggest treatments and write prescriptions. If you have ongoing needs such as dressing changes or pill checks, this can also be arranged with one of the nurses.

If a follow-up appointment is needed, we can liaise with your own GP and this is done automatically thanks to your shared digital patient record.

When can I book an appointment?

You can book your evening appointment for any time between 6.30pm and 9.30pm on a weekday, or you can also arrange for an appointment on Saturdays between 9am and 4pm, or on Sundays 9am until 1pm. We are also open on Bank Holidays from 10am-2pm.

Who commissions this service and why?

Our GP group, Curo Health Ltd provides this evening and weekend appointment clinic, and has provided more than 10,000 appointments since August 2018.

The service was put into place because there was a real need for healthcare professionals to be available when our patients need them after work or to fit around childcare.

All care is delivered by GPs and nurses that work in local practices, and these out-of-hours appointments free up time for those patients who need long-term condition management from their own GP during the day. What’s more, as we have access to your full medical records, it’s much safer and saves more time than having to go to A&E for minor problems.

Patient Testimonials

Very good for people who work and can’t get in at their practice

I am very grateful to have seen a GP today as my GP was not available

It’s good to know that we can see a doctor on the weekend instead of going to hospital.
