NHS Leeds has chosen not to commission a Minor Injury service from GPs. Therefore, any patient with a minor injury must attend a hospital A&E Department or a Minor Injuries Unit for further care and advice.
Wharfedale Minor Injuries Unit
Newall Carr Road
Telephone: 0113 392 1647
A&E units can be found at Leeds General Infirmary and St James's Hospital and also Harrogate District Hospital. (There is no Emergency Department for children under 16 years old at St James's University Hospital)
When should your child be immunised?
Children’s’ immunisations are performed by the nurses during the Baby Clinics – no appointment necessary. More information about child health can be found in our Live Well section .
