MAGAZINES -  We are short of magazines for the waiting room - if you have anything appropriate that you could pass on please bring them in!

OUT OF HOURS - CALL 111 if you need medical advice or assistance anytime the practice is closed. All calls are free to this number.  CALL 999 immediately if the problem may be life threatening at anytime.

PRIVATE WORK - Please note that anything that is not NHS contracted work can take up to six weeks to complete as the doctors must give priority to all NHS work.  This includes some forms that are required for the Council.  Fees are charged where appropriate for private work.   If you do need something done please contact the Patient Services team to find about about the charges.  A GP appointment is NOT needed if you need to have forms or reports done.   Charges can be paid by card over the phone and must be paid before the work is undertaken.

When We Are Closed

Walk In Service


There is a walk-in service at Horne Street Medical practice, Hanson Lane, Halifax that is open from 08:00 to 18.00 weekends and Bank Holidays.

All patients are welcome to use this service for minor illness or urgent care that does not warrant an A&E attendance. Examples of things that you could attend for are: emergency family planning, coughs, colds and flu-like symptoms, minor cuts and wounds, dressings, muscle and joint injuries, skin complaints, sunburn, head lice, stomach ache, indigestion, vomiting, diarrhoea. 

If you attend the walk-in centre we will be notified so that we can ensure that your medical record is kept fully up to date.

Accident & Emergency (A&E)

A&E departments assess and treat patients with serious injuries or illnesses. Generally, you should visit A&E or call 999 for emergencies, such as:

  • loss of consciousness, 
  • pain that is not relieved by simple analgesia,
  • acute confused state,
  • severe chest pain, or
  • breathing difficulties.

If you are unsure then please feel free to ring the practice for advice.


Call 999 in an emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
