Appointments

Configure Appointment Details

We offer same day appointments for ONE condition only.

These appointments will be released at 8am every day.  The appointments will be bookable and these can be booked online, by telephone or face to face at reception.

For easy access we suggest you check online before contacting the practice as the telephones may be busy.  If you require a login, please speak with reception.

Routine Appointments

Routine appointments can be booked up to 4 weeks in advance with any of our GPs at either of our surgeries hopefully on a day and at a time to suit you.

Appointments can be made by coming in to reception, over the phone during opening hours or online. 

Telephone Triage

This is to enable the practice to provide a more appropriate way of handling requests for same day appointments.

It would be very useful when you contact the surgery if you could give the receptionist brief details of the problem.

When you are phoned back the doctor/receptionist will either:

  • Deal with the problem over the phone.
  • Write a prescription for you to collect from the surgery.
  • Ask you to come down to the surgery to see the doctor or the nurse the same day.
  • Make a routine appointment for you to see a doctor or nurse
  • Arrange a home visit.

Specialist Clinic Appointments

We offer a range of more specialised clinics including minor surgery, joint injections, contraception and sexual health, level 2 diabetes and most of the doctors have an area of speciality.

These appointments are booked for you by our practitioners should they deem this to be appropriate.

Telephone Advice

If you wish to ask the doctor or nurse something but do not need to see them face-to-face then please ring and leave your number and details with the receptionist.

Most calls will be returned within 5 working days.

Home Visits

If you are too ill to attend the surgery & require the services of a doctor then please call to request a visit before 10.30 am (please note that transport problems are not a reason to request a home visit).

Visits requested after 10.30 am will be passed to the doctor on-call and they will prioritise them appropriately.

Please note that we can see at least 3 patients at the surgery in the time it takes us to do one visit so we very much appreciate your efforts in attending the surgery. 

There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Health Centre.

Cancellations & Reminders

Cancel an Appointment

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, it will be coded on your record. Persistent defaulters will receive a letter and may result in your being deducted from our patient list.

You can cancel appointments in person, by phone and online.

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

More information about appointments with the extended access service

The service is run by Bradford Care Alliance, which represents all GP practices in the Bradford area. Medical appointments are with GPs and other healthcare staff who work in the area; so your appointment may not be with a clinician from this practice.

To use the service we will ask for your consent to share your medical record and our reception staff will explain what this means and why it is necessary.
