Wharfedale, Airedale & Craven Alliance

Federation of GP practices



Your Alliance is working on a number of important projects and services that will bring direct benefits to patients in our practice catchments. Some of these projects are subject to a bidding process that means we have to think carefully about what is best for the people we serve in order to secure the funds we need.

Extended access

EAAll 16 group practices of Airedale Wharfedale offer a GP Extended Access Service, based at Farfield Group Practice, IG Medical (Ilkley Moor and Grassington), Silsden and Steeton Medical Practice, Town Head Surgery, Fisher Medical Centre, Dyneley House Surgery and Ling House Medical Centre.

The service means that patients have an opportunity to attend an appointment Monday to Friday after 6.30pm up to 8.00pm, Saturday and Sunday 8.30am to 11.30am to see a GP, advanced nurse practitioner (ANP), nurse or physiotherapist. Appointments are a mixture of pre-bookable and on the day bookings Monday to Friday and pre-bookable appointments on Saturday and Sunday.

Appointments are only available for routine problems, not for ongoing issues. Patients can access the pre-bookable and on the day appointments by contacting their own practice.

As GPs, ANPs, nurses and physiotherapists from all of the 16 practices delivering this will be working in the Extended Access service, your appointment may not be with a clinician from your own practice.EA poster

Consent to Share

To use the service you will be asked for your consent to share your medical record with the Extended Access Service. Without this consent you will not be able to be seen in the Extended Access Service as the clinician would not have access to your medical records. When you are offered an appointment, the receptionists will explain what this means and why it is necessary.
