Armley

The Armley Locality is formed of 5 practices, each one represented by a GP and practice manager.

Lead GP – Dr Pablo Martin
Lead PM – Linda Thompson
Lead PN – Deborah Cooper

The Hub at Priory View offers appointments through the week and over the weekend for the benefit of patients of the 5 practices. It is open Mon – Fri 07.00 – 08.00, Saturday morning 08.00 – 14.00 and Sunday morning 08.00 – 12.00. Appointments are book through practices’ receptions during normal opening hours, but telephones are diverted when hub is open and practices are not.

Diabetes work. We have been more proactive referring patients to the National Diabetes Prevention Program (NDPP) and meeting to discuss issues like weight management vouchers, and hypoglycaemia toolkit.

Leg club. While we are planning to operate one club in Armley, another one is created in the locality of Morley. An example of localities also sharing good practice. Deborah and Linda have a meeting with LCH management team and Dawn Newsome from Armley Helping Hands on 16th August to discuss moving the idea forward.

PEP Worker – Additional funding received allowed us to employ a PEP worker, Barca has recruited and this person is due to start on the 1st September. They will receive clinical system training and be able to enter direct to patient notes. The worker will see patients across all 5 practices one day per week in each.
