One Medicare @ The Light registers its 5000th patient

One Medicare @ The Light provides NHS healthcare to most of Leeds and is based in the heart of the city at The Light shopping centre.Rachel Lewis, our 5,000th patient, a Mum and Middle Eastern Studies student at Leeds University commented, "I chose to register with One Medicare @ The Light as it is really convenient; its between my home and university and the surgery has been able to accommodate me whenever I need an appointment. I also have a four month old child who has been able to have all her vaccinations at the surgery."

One Medicare @ The Light is now delighted to be able to offer NHS healthcare to more people in Leeds than ever by extending their practice boundary to now include most of Leeds. In light of the recent news regarding patients being given the choice of registering anywhere, we look forward to welcome patients to the surgery in the future. In addition, responding to patients demands, the surgery now offers an extended range of services to its patients. This includes a Young Persons Friendly Clinic including sexual health and pregnancy testing specifically for our younger patients and a specialised physiotherapy service in conjunction with Leeds Metropolitan University. One Medicare also offer private cervical screening, a private travel clinic and flu vaccinations as the winter season approaches.

Dr Phil Earnshaw, a GP and One Medicare's Medical Director added, "People in central Leeds had been telling us that they needed access to a GP in the City Centre. Still we are surprised that our patient list size has grown so quickly. I believe it reflects a convenient service in a great site that is tailored to the needs of our patients."
