Crossley Street Surgery is a six-partner, semi-rural practice, set in the attractive market town of Wetherby. The practice serves almost 12,000 patients from modern purpose-built premises with all the usual facilities for contemporary General Practice. There is a comprehensive Primary Health Care Team and also many other added facilities, both NHS and private. The practice is a local provider for joint injections. Private on-site facilities include Physiotherapy. These are all in addition to the regular disease management clinics.

The practice operates under a Personal Medical Services contract with NHS Leeds Clinical Commissioning Group.

The practice is fully computerised and paperlight accredited.

GP Appointments

As restrictions are starting to lift and we are gradually introducing more face to face appointments, we are inevitably encountering a very high level of telephone calls and requests for appointments with GPs. This demand is being exacerbated by patients wanting to discuss several problems with the GP in one appointment. As you can imagine, this is adding increasing pressure on our practice. Please can we remind patients that GP appointments are 10 minutes long and should not be used to discuss several different problems.

We appreciate that over the past year there may be several things that you have put off speaking to your GP about. If this is the case, please could we remind you that there are other avenues available for discussing any issues or symptoms you may have:
