The Tolson Primary Care Network
NHS Kirklees CCG has approved the registration of nine primary care networks in Kirklees.
Primary care networks are a critical component of the vision for health and social care set out in the Kirklees Health and Wellbeing Plan and the NHS Long Term Plan. Networks are much more than groups of general practices. They represent a fundamental shift in the way health and care is provided to our population. GP practices, community services, social care and others will be expected to work together in a way they have never done before.
Networks should typically serve populations of 30,000 to 50,000, consist of more than one GP practice, and cover an appropriate geographic area. As part of the registration process, each network was required to identify a clinical director. Following their registration, primary care networks will be expected to set out their plans to support the implementation of the five year framework for GP contract reform, starting with changes in a number of key areas.
Tolson Care Partnership https://www.tolsonpcn.nhs.uk/ is the name of the Primary Care Network that covers our area and includes the following GP Practices:
The Whitehouse Centre
The University Health Centre
The Junction Surgery
Greenhead Family Doctors
Rose Medical Practice
Via the network, our GPs can arrabge for patients to access a range of additional services - please see below.

Evening & Weekend Appointments
In order to assist patients who are at work, uni, college, or school, and who may struggle to make it to daytime sessions we are now able to book our patients for routine appointments with a local GP, Physio, Dietician or Health & Wealth-being Coach on weekday evenings and at weekends, both here and at other practices in the Network.
Pre-bookable and on-the-day appointments are available between 8.00am and 8.00pm each weekday, with additional slots available on Saturdays between 9.00am and 5.00pm.
