If you require an appointment or wish to talk to a medical professional please DO NOT come to the surgery to make it. Please call the surgery first, or, alternatively use eConsult.
We are operating a same day phone triage service and will see if we can manage your health need over the phone, if clinically necessary, we will arrange to see you face to face at the surgery later in the day. There will be significant pressures on the phones but we will get to you as soon as we can.
Please note that this website is not being updated and due to Covid restrictions, some of the information is out of date or no longer applicable.

New Veterans’ Mental Health High Intensity Service in the North of England
FORMER armed forces personnel will soon be able to access a new NHS service to support them during a mental health crisis.
Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust (LYPFT) has been appointed as lead provider for this new service to improve the health and lives of former military personnel across the North of England.
The Veterans Mental Health High Intensity Service (HIS) has been commissioned by NHS England. LYPFT will lead a collaboration of partners including NHS trusts and third sector veterans’ support organisations to deliver the service across the North of England, which we anticipate will begin fully in November 2020.
The main delivery partners are:
LYPFT already provides the successful North of England NHS Veterans’ Mental Health Complex Treatment Service (VMH CTS) – a specialist community mental health service for armed forces veterans – which launched over two years ago.
The HIS will provide liaison, advice and support for health and care services close to veterans’ own homes should they be experiencing a mental health crisis and, following that, provide support for veterans to gain stability in their lives including some support for families.
We will work in collaboration with armed forces charities to enable a veteran-centric approach to:
- Crisis mental health care
- Inpatient treatment, and
- On-going care across locally-based organisations that are best placed to support veterans near to where they live.
