Evening and weekend appointments now available.....
Patients can now see a local GP for routine appointments on weekday evenings and at weekends.
Pre-bookable and on-the-day appointments are available between 6.30pm and 9.30pm each weekday,
with additional slots available on Saturdays from 9am and 4pm and Sundays 9am and 1pm.
The scheme starts in August when evening and weekend appointments will be available for any patient registered with a GP in North Kirklees.
The appointments will be available in Dewsbury Health Centre.
How to book an evening or weekend appointment
There are ‘pre-bookable’ and ‘on-the-day’ appointments which can be accessed through your own GP practice, or by calling the free NHS 111 phone line out of normal working hours.

Dr Lobb is retiring....
As many of you already know, I am retiring from practice this summer. I first joined the Practice as a trainee in the summer of 1989 and then returned following completion of my training, to become a Partner in 1992. I have been very fortunate to have worked with many wonderful and supportive colleagues over the years and would like to thank all the receptionists, secretaries, health care assistants, nurses, managers, doctors and other health care professionals past and present who have enabled me to enjoy my job so much.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank my patients for their support over the years. It has been my utmost pleasure to have helped you and your family. I will miss the day to day contact and friendships I have made over the years. I leave you in the very capable hands of all of my colleagues and wish you all the best.
Dr Brian Lobb
