Getting help from the practice
Self Referrals - no need to contact us first
Many conditions can be managed without speaking to a doctor and are self-limiting, which means they will get better on their own. If you need advice for such conditions, we will always suggest speaking to your local pharmacist first who is qualified to assess and advise on a wide range of common problems.
In addition, many of the services your GP might refer you to accept self-referrals meaning patients can contact them for help directly. These include:
First Response - offers support 24 hours a day, seven days a week to people of all ages living in Bradford, Airedale, Wharfedale or Craven experiencing a mental health crisis. Call 0800 952 1181 and find out more at https://www.bdct.nhs.uk/services/first-response/
MyWellbeing - Talking through life’s ups and downs. MWC is a free NHS service to help people manage everyday problems such as feeling low, having problems sleeping, feeling anxious and experiencing stress. Register online at https://bmywellbeingiapt.nhs.uk/ or call 0300 5555551

Minor Eye condition Service - The local Minor Eye Conditions Service (MECS) uses the skills of Optometrists in the community to see and treat patients a new or recent onset minor eye problem to get the help that they need quickly and easily closer to home. This is a free service. Find out more at http://www.bradfordloc.org.uk/mecs-for-patients/
If you still need to make an appointment about a medical problem:
If you have an admin query, sick (Fit) note request or other non medical related issue:
complete an online consultation via the Airmid app - you can also upload any relevant paperwork
For patients requiring clinical advice or assessment who are truly housebound, we ask that you call the practice as soon as practicable on the day. Initially a clinician will make phone contact to find out more about the problem. Just as above, many issues can be dealt with via phone, video call, or by sending in images, but if required, the clinician will arrange a home visit by a member of the clinical team (e.g GP, nurse)
Evening and weekend appointments
We work with local practices to offer appointments in the evenings and weekends. These appointments cover a range of services such as blood tests, GP appointments, MSK assessments, smear tests, psychological support plus more.
Please speak to our reception team if you would like an evening or weekend appointment.
Please note, these appontments may be at another local practice rather than one of our three sites.
Cancel an Appointment
View or cancel your appointments via the Airmid app
It is important that you inform the reception staff if you are unable to attend your appointment, this will allow that appointment to be offered to another patient. If you fail to notify the Practice that you are unable to attend, you will be sent a letter informing you that you have defaulted from your appointment. If you miss more than three appointments with us without prior notice, you may be permanently removed from our list and asked to register with another GP.
Text Reminder Service
We have a texting service which allows you to receive confirmation and reminders about your appointments.
To have this service you will need to register by completing a consent form.
Please remember to update your contact details with us when you change address, telephone numbers and email address.
The practice is a GP training practice on the Bradford GP Registrar Training Scheme. The GP registrars are fully qualified doctors who have had some experience of hospital medicine but wish to move into general practice.
