Changes to Walk in Service
From the 14th September 2015
MONDAY & THURSDAY afternoon (booking in times 1.30pm – 2.30pm)
Following discussions with the patient group and patients attending the Walk in Service we are going to move the Tuesday Walk in Clinic to Mondays (booking in times remain 1.30pm-2.30pm). This will allow better access to appointments for patients who have become unwell over the weekend.
All patients wishing to use this service should book in at reception between 1.30pm-2.30pm. Booking in for this surgery will not be accepted by telephone and will end strictly at 2.30pm. Patients will not be booked in before 1.30. So long as you book in before 2.30pm you will be seen on the day.
Please be aware that this is a 'Walk In Surgery' with no fixed appointment times so most patients will have to wait to be seen. Patients will be seen in order of arrival but priority may be given to emergency cases. Patients will be seen by the first available Doctor during these clinics, you will not be able to choose who you see. Anyone being abusive to the reception team or other patients will be refused an appointment and removed from the practice list. Please give consideration to patients who struggle to stand waiting to be booked in.
If you need to see a specific Doctor then please ask for a routine appointment
LIFELINE is a specialist alcohol detox service that offers a friendly, free and confidential service. They are now holding appointment only clinics on a Friday afternoon for our patients. For more information please speak to reception.

Would you like to make your record shareable to services that might care for you in the future or the services that are currently taking care of you?
Would you like your doctor to be able to see information recorded by those other services?
You now have the choice to ask your practice to make it possible to share your records should the need arise. Setting this up does not mean that anyone can look at your records. They still have to ask for your permission. If you would like to arrange this option please ask at reception. The choice you record can be changed at any time.
If you have difficulty remembering your appointment. Sign up for our SMS text reminder service. Ask at reception for details.
Stay well this winter with the help of a new NHS website
Winter is traditionally a very busy time for GPs and hospitals. It brings with it illnesses and ailments such as flu, coughs and colds and Norovirus (the winter vomiting bug.)
That’s why it pays to be prepared so that you can stay well during this period. And a new campaign, launched by doctors in Bradford and Airedale, will help you do exactly that.
Listen out for adverts which will be aired on local radio stations and take a look at the new site online, http://www.nhsstaywell.org/
