Forward Leeds, the city’s alcohol and drug service, offers a range of options for patients to access their services in their local community.
31 GP Practices in the Leeds CCG area have a regular member of Forward Leeds staff on site. Patients can see specialist alcohol and drug workers at various venues and get support to cut down or achieve abstinence. For a full list of GP practices and health centres with a Forward Leeds worker, please see here.
In addition, GPs can refer patients with alcohol issues to Forward Leeds and request they are seen by specialist alcohol workers from the substance misuse service at either Bellbrooke Surgery in Harehills or Bramley Clinic.
Patients can be referred through an online form or to single point of contact team on 0113 887 2477 Mon-Fri between 9am-5pm.
