Feel unwell at the weekend or on a Bank Holiday?
Just call your GP practice number as normal, and your call will come straight through to GP Care Wakefield; Wakefield’s Evening & Weekend service. Your call will be taken by a friendly clinical advisor who works here in Wakefield, usually within a few minutes. Read more about our call times in FAQs.
Explain your symptoms as clearly as you can to the clinical advisor so they can give you advice, arrange a prescription or signpost you to the best service for your needs.
If you need an appointment, the clinical advisor can book you one for the same day at Trinity Medical Centre or Pontefract Hospital, where you will be seen by either a Wakefield GP or Advanced Nurse Practitioner (ANP).
To use the GP Care Wakefield service, you will need to give us permission to access your medical records. This allows our healthcare staff to fill in what advice and treatment you have been given for your usual GP to see.
When is the service open?
Saturday/Sunday/Bank Holidays, 9am-3pm to answer your calls and for same-day booked appointments only.
Outside these times, you should call NHS 111 if you have an urgent problem, or 999 in an emergency.
