Walk in Family Planning Clinic
Unfortunately we will not have our usual Family Planning Clinic available on Monday 2nd March. It will be an emergency service only.
The service will resume as normal on Monday 9th March. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact the surgery.
There's currently a lot of information circulating about this new infection. Do not go to your GP surgery or hospital if you are concerned about symptoms you may have relating to coronavirus. Call 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people.
It is important to stay vigilant still. Click the title above to view general advice on the illness. Equally you can go to the GOV.UK website for regular updates, the site is refreshed with new information every day at 2pm so the public will be made aware if anything changes.
Omnitherapy - Leeds Mental Wellbeing Service
This is another free resource for our patients to use. You don't have to have an assessment before using their service, if you are over 17 and feeling low or need help with the vast array of mental health concerns we face in daily life, just head over to their website and find the right course for you.
They can help with any of the following concerns:
- Low mood or depression
- Panic attacks
- Lack of self confidence
- Postnatal depression
Their aim is to connect people to services and activities in their community in order to benefit overall health and wellbeing. It is their belief that everyone can live a fulfilled life, however, sometimes you need help to achieve this. Feeling linked to your community has lots of health and wellbeing benefits that support resilience, independence and good physical and mental health.

Fundraising for the benefit of yourself and others
We wanted to draw attention to the many events that St Gemma's Hospice are putting on this year. They are a free of charge service for people living with life limiting illness in the local Leeds area, however, the cost of providing this service is not free. They have a multitude of activities going on from 10k runs/marathons to swimming challenges and group dog walks. All either have a charge to enter or a fundraising pack included to raise funds through friends and family members. Each of these events are a great reason to get out and about to improve your fitness so will benefit everyone involved! Follow this link to find out more.
The use of vehicles around our practices
It has recently come to our attention that there may be some people abusing the car parking resource we provide for our patients. We ask that people in the community only use our car parks when using our services so that those who need them always have a space available.
Can we also ask that if you are waiting in your car for a friend or family member, please turn off your engine. 'Engine Idling' causes unnecessary air pollution which is contributing to many health conditions on a global scale. Follow this link for information on the consequences of on-going air pollution.
