Online Services

GP online services allow you to access a range of services via your computer, mobile or tablet. There are 2 ways to access these and both require you sign up.

Online Services - linked directly to your clinical record. Once you have signed up, you will be able to:

  • book or cancel appointments online
  • renew or order repeat prescriptions online
  • view parts of your GP record, including information about medication, allergies, vaccinations, previous illnesses and test results

You can still contact the practice by phone or in person, this is just another option, which other patients have found is more convenient and saves them time. More information including “how to” leaflets and videos of patients and why they are using GP online services are available at

How to sign-up

For more information, please contact reception or next time you visit the surgery, bring with you a piece of photo ID (passport, driving licence) and something with your address on like a bank statement but not a gas or electric bill. If you don’t have these, please talk to us and we will help you sign-up

GP Online Services

You can sign up to GP Online Services (hosted by Engage Consult software) by clicking on the picture below. 

If you use Engage Consult then it’ll help us to get you the care you need at the earliest opportunity. This is because when you use the system you provide a lot of information about your problem which our clinical staff can use to decide on the best course of action. This might result in you being seen by someone that has earlier appointments available, or we might be able to advise you over the phone without you needing to visit the practice.

The system can be used for admin enquiries as well. Patients can ask when their repeat prescription will be ready or ask for a doctor’s letter or sick note.

It typically takes a patient 5 – 10 minutes to complete a questionnaire. Most questionnaires can be completed in 5 – 10 minutes, complex problems, or multiple problems, may take longer. 

Once you have submitted your enquiry, we may contact you to confirm your identity. It is important we have up to date contact details for you.

Welcome to King Cross Practice, Halifax

We have a team of 4 doctors working from purpose-built premises (1988). The doctors form a general, not limited partnership. We aim to work as a team to provide a high standard of healthcare to individuals and families. We believe most patients prefer to have their own personal doctor and we encourage patients to see their usual doctor whenever possible for ongoing medical conditions. Access to the building does not involve stairs.

You can also text us back to cancel your appointment, just text the word CANCEL back to the number on your reminder message.

Once you've been seen by one of our clinical teams, you may be sent a text asking whether you would recommend us to your friends or family. Please take the time to respond to this as we value your views. You also have the option of stopping such texts from us.

If your online password needs to be reset, please come in to the surgery with photo ID (driving licence or passport) and confirmation of your address (utility bill etc). We cannot do this over the telephone.

Busy Call Times

Monday morning is by far our busiest time of the week.  Our Monday morning call rate between 8 and 9 am is running at around 100.  Clearly it is impossible to handle this number of calls, so it is inevitable that some callers will experience problems getting through to us. We have three incoming lines in total.  We try to restrict outgoing calls during our busy times to leave lines free for patients to use.  We could increase the number of lines but we do not have the staff to manage more incoming lines, so unfortunately this is not an option.

Our main surgery number is 01422 230730
