What does Extended Access mean for me?
There are now a wide range of Extended Access services available to our patients. If you want to find out more, click here to see what’s on offer in a short, informative animation.
Saturday and Sunday morning telephone and face-to-face appointments
There are now routine appointments available on Saturday and Sunday morning from 9am-12pm through our extended access service at:
Rutland Lodge Medical Practice, Scott Hall Road, Leeds, LS7 3DR
These appointments will initially be over the phone but you may be asked to attend the clinic if appropriate. This increased availability is an extension of the services offered by your practice and is provided by a range of local clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants.
Please note, this is not a walk-in service – you still need to make an appointment. Appointments can be made either via your own GP practice or by calling the extended access team on 0113 221 3540, between 9am and 12pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Extended Access appointments are for routine general practice issues and not for urgent care. If your practice is closed and you are unwell please call NHS 111.
With extra routine Extended Access appointments available in the evening, it is now even easier for you to get an appointment at a time to suit you.
Physiotherapy triage service – This is a telephone appointment for patients who need to speak to an advanced physiotherapist regarding muscle and joint problems. They will issue advice and, where appropriate, arrange a follow up. Please see below for further details.
Healthy Minds – This is a telephone appointment with a Healthy Minds Practitioner for patients aged 18 and over who are feeling low, irritable, anxious or stressed, are experiencing poor sleep and/or concentration or have had a recent bereavement and who would like help with emotional wellbeing.

Clinical pharmacist service – This is a telephone appointment for patients who need to speak to a pharmacist regarding a medication issue but don’t need to come to surgery. The pharmacists are able to prescribe and organise prescriptions electronically.
