For patients concerned that they may have coronavirus or may have come into contact with someone who has, the NHS 111 online service has created coronavirus pages that tell patients what they should do based on their particular circumstances. These can be accessed at: https://111.nhs.uk/service/covid-19
To protect patients and staff the practice has from Tuesday 17th March 2020 changed ALL APPOINTMENTS TO TELEPHONE TRIAGE – PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE PRACTICE UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN SPECIFICALLY ADVISED TO DO SO BY A DOCTOR OR NURSE – PLEASE PHONE TO ARRANGE WHATEVER IT IS YOU NEED. If you have concerns about Coronavirus please get advice from NHS 111 online DO NOT PHONE THE PRACTICE as you will only be re-directed to NHS 111.
Please use our online service – SYSTM1 Online to order repeat medications if you can (click on order Repeat Prescriptions on our website to access or download the APP) to and ensure you have a chemist set up to collect your prescriptions electronically. You can access SYSTM1 online from any smartphone with the APP or via the internet. If you do not have a login or a nominated pharmacy this can be arranged over the phone for you.
NHS111 online is where you get a sick note for your employer if you are off due to symptoms or having to self islolate – YOU WILL NOT GET THIS FROM THE PRACTICE. There is a link below to take you to this page.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience these drastic changes in service may cause but we assure you the Doctors and Staff are following all the current guidance and doing all we can to ensure we can continue to offer essential services to all our patients.

General Update Information:
Leeds City Medical Practice is a well established NHS General Practice based in the Beeston area of Leeds. It is split between two main sites (Beeston Hill and Parkside) and also has a smaller part-time branch surgery (Crossland). See the right hand column for more information on each surgery.
The Doctors and Nurses work across all of these sites on a rota basis and patients can be seen at either of these surgeries. Patients registered with the practice are free to consult with any of the GPs and Nurses.
As well as a source of information about our practice, the staff and the services we provide, we hope you will use this website as a useful resource for other health-related information. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like. We can use your ideas to improve our online services and further develop the content of this site.
We are part of NHS Leeds and a member of Leeds South & East Clinical Commissioning Group.
Beeston Hill site and Parkside site are open between 8am and 6pm Monday to Friday. Appointments are run on an appointment basis and need to be booked in advance. Urgent appointments will be triaged daily by the On-Call Doctor who will contact you by telephone and either provide advice or provide an appointment that day where felt appropriate.
Crossland appointments are all bookable in advance and when this site is closed, you can attend or contact either Parkside or Beeston Hill as we are all the same practice.
We offer late evening GP and Nurse appointments at the Beeston Hill site on Mondays between 6.30 – 8.30pm and early morning appointments at Parkside site on Thursdays between 7.30 – 8.00am. These need to be booked in advance and hopefully will help working people.
When the Surgery is Closed and you need medical help please telephone 111
This is a new NHS telephone service to use when it is not urgent enough to call 999, but you need some medical help or advice. It is a free service from both landlines and mobiles and is open 24 hrs per day.
