GP Care Wakefield
GP Care Wakefield is an extended out of hours service owned by all Wakefield GP Practices to cover the entire population of the Wakefield district. It operates from:
6pm-10pm, Monday to Friday, and
9am-3pm, weekends and Bank Holidays.
The Practice telephones will be automatically diverted during operating hours. Outside of these times please telephone 111 (see below) or ring back during normal surgery hours, if your need is not urgent.
Following triage of your problem, if deemed appropriate, the service will offer you a GP appointment at Trinity Medical Centre or Pontefract General Infirmary.
There needs to be shared consent in place for the service to be able to provide safe care therefore please ensure you give explicit record sharing consent when accepting an appointment with the service. Patients who prefer not to give shared consent cannot access this service.
The service is not available for routine matters such as repeat prescriptions.
