Struggle to make daytime appointments to see the nurse?
If you need to see the nurse, we know how hard it can be arranging daytime appointments that fit around work, school or other commitments. Most practices in Wakefield can now offer you an evening or weekend nurse appointment locally if it suits you better.
Just mention it to the practice team the next time you need to see the nurse. They may be able to book you an evening or weekend nurse appointment at Trinity Medical Centre or Pontefract Hospital, for these types of appointments:
- Annual reviews for heart disease, diabetes, COPD, asthma and stroke
- Blood tests
- Routine ECG (not chest pain)
- Review of contraception pill
- Repeat depo injection
- B12 injection
- Removal of sutures and clips
The service is not available for routine matters such as repeat prescriptions.
When is this service available?
This service is open weekdays from 6pm-8pm and weekends between 9am-1pm.
The practice nurses and health care assistants who work in the service, also work in Wakefield practices. They can access your medical records if you give them consent to do so.
