Local Care Direct is a community membership organisation which was formed in 2004 bringing together nine GP co-operatives operating across West Yorkshire.
We are one of the country’s leading independent healthcare providers, creating innovative ways to deliver high quality urgent and primary care. As a social enterprise we care about people and put the needs of patients, communities and clinical commissioners at the heart of everything we do.
The company employs 400 staff and engages a further 280 sessional GPs to deliver services. Turnover is around £20m with any surplus reinvested back into the service and local communities.
Services are provided from 20 locations across West Yorkshire including Leeds, Bradford, Airedale, Wakefield and Kirklees and in parts of North Yorkshire. The company’s registered office is in Huddersfield.
We have a fantastic team of committed and caring people working around the clock to deliver a wide range of health services, including:
- Out of hours GP consultations
- GP practices and support services for primary care
- Care pathways using telehealth
- Urgent dental care
- Minor injuries units
- Primary care support for A&E departments
