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 6 – 10 pm Monday to Friday, and 9 – 3pm Saturday’s, Sunday’s and Bank Holiday’s.   Telephones will be automatically diverted during operating hours.  Outside of these times please telephone 111 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.

By broadening the availability of GP access, medical advice and support, patients will no longer need to attend A&E for conditions that are not suitable.  

There needs to be shared consent in place for the service to be able to provide safe care all 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.
