We hold additional evening surgeries Wednesday and Thursday until 8:30pm (Pre-booked appointments only.)
Please note we do not take prescription requests over the phone.
Alternatively, you can submit your prescription request form by handing it into the practice reception, by post by attaching a S.A.E.
Please also note that if a request is for an item not on your list, the doctor needs to review it; inevitably there can be a delay. For more information on repeat prescriptions please click here.
Extended Access Appointments
There are now a large number of schemes in our locality to enable patients to access Primary Care Services outside of traditional GP hours of work (08:00 - 18:00 Monday to Friday)
Evening appointments at Street Lane Practice
There are now extra routine appointments available in the evening, making it easier for you to get an appointment at a time to suit you.
The practice offers:
A virtual clinical pharmacist service.
Telephone appointments for patients who need to speak to a pharmacist regarding a medication issue but don’t need to come to the surgery. The pharmacists are able to prescribe and organise prescriptions electronically.
Musculoskeletal (MSK) service
Provides telephone and some face to face appointments for patients who need to speak to an advanced physiotherapist regarding muscle and joint problems. They will issue advice and where appropriate arrange a follow up.
For either of the above please speak to the reception team for further information on how to book one of these appointments.
All of the above are now offered 7 days a week including bank holidays.
A virtual mental health support service (Healthy Minds)
This is a telephone appointment service for patients aged 18 and over who would like help with emotional wellbeing. It will provide a 20 minute telephone consultation with Healthy Minds Practitioners who will be able to offer support for patients experiencing low mood, stress or anxiety. They will offer support, explore and develop coping strategies and offer signposting and recommend other support services. Please speak to the Reception team for further information on how to book an appointment.
Saturday and Sunday morning face to face appointments
There are now routine appointments available on Saturday and Sunday morning from 9am-12pm available through our extended access service at:
Rutland Lodge Medical Practice, Scott Hall Road, Leeds, LS7 3DR
This increased availability is an extension of the services offered by your practice and is provided by a range of local clinicians including GPs, nurses and health care assistants.
Please note, this is not a walk-in service – you still need to make an appointment. Appointments can be made either via your own GP practice or by calling the extended access team on 0113 221 3540 between 9am and 12pm on Saturday and Sunday.
Extended Access appointments are for routine general practice issues and not for urgent care. If your practice is closed and you are unwell please call NHS 111.
In due course it will also be possible to book on the day appointments to be seen at the Rutland Lodge weekend hub. When this service commences our telephone service will advise how to access it.

All GP practices are required to declare the mean earnings (e.g. average pay) for GPs working to deliver NHS services to patients at each practice.
However, it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
The average pay for GPs working in The Street Lane Practice in the last financial year was £77,595 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 3 full time GPs and 7 part time GPs who worked in the practice for more than six months.”
