Our well trained and approachable team of doctors, nurses and Administrative staff aim to provide the highest quality of comprehensive healthcare to our patients, who we believe are at the centre of Primary care and deserve the best care that we can give to them.
The practice offers a wide range of medical services, including health promotion and screening as well as diagnosis and treatment of illness. We also offer management and monitoring of long term conditions for existing and new patients.
We offer a wide range of appointments at the practice from Monday to Friday and are also now open on a Saturday and Sunday. We can identify your health needs and offer appropriate and timely appointments and advice.
Individual GP Availability When Booking Appointments
Some of our GP’s work part time and this can have an impact when requesting an appointment with a specific GP. If the GP works part time, there will only be a certain amount of appointments available in a working week, in the same way that anyone working part time would be affected. It is worth contacting the surgery to find out more about a particular GP’s working pattern and availability.
We have tried to combat this issue with ensuring that some appointments are made available a week in advance for these GP’s and these appointments can be booked by calling the surgery. However, there are only so many appointment that are available for individual GP’s and once they are booked this inevitable will create waiting time to see a particular GP.
All our GPs have a range of duties including staffing the Walk-In, dealing with routine appointments, running specific clinics, dealing with patient queries and test results, dealing with patient medication and prescriptions, home visits as well as other responsibilities
We have full and up to date records for our patients and these are quickly available for reference by all GP’s and medical staff at the practice where appropriate. From a continuity perspective, the necessary information for any of our GP’s to care for you in an appropriate way is contained within your clinical record.
All of our GP’s have the necessary experience in which to read your clinical history and make the best decisions with you for your health.
Although you may have received information explaining to you who you’re named GP is, it is not a requirement that you need to see your named GP.
Any of our GP’s can deal with your needs and look after you and you are free to see any of our GP’s.
Utilising Online Services to Book an Appointment
There is also the option to use the online booking services to book an appointment and this would show you the availability of each GP at least a month in advance.
This would give you the opportunity to book any of the available appointments at the time of booking.
Patients Not Attending for Appointments – Known as Did Not Attends – DNA’s
Despite the demand for weekday booked appointments, up to 30 patients a week do not attend (DNA) their booking and the time is wasted. If you do need to cancel your appointment, please ensure you contact the surgery to do this so that the appointment can be released for another patient to book into.
We are open from 8am to 4pm on Saturday and Sunday as part of the Headingley HUB.
Please be aware that appointments booked in the Hub on a weekend will be with a GP who works on behalf of all the local GP practices. This may mean that you have an appointment with a GP who does not usually work for Burton Croft surgery, but who will be able to give you the same level of care.
All the GP’s working in the HUB will be able to access all the necessary information about you to give you the highest level of care and the process will be exactly the same as you would receive from a GP Monday to Friday.
If you would like to register, please access the registration information on this page or call into the surgery for further information. We look forward to looking after your healthcare needs.
