IMPORTANT NOTICE TO PATIENTS

Our walk in surgeries have not been temporarily stopped due to Coronavirus. We are having a telephone triage system where clinicians will triage all patients who are wanting to be seen on the day by telephone. Patients will not be able to choose which clinician contacts them.

All pre-booked appointments – if patients have cold or flu like symptoms please do not attend your appointment self isolate for 7 days and if you still need to be seen after you are better telephone for an appointment, do not come to the surgery.

We would like to thank our patients for their understanding and co-operation regarding this current situation .

We need to ensure the safety of staff as well as patients

Reducing prescribing of over-the-counter medicines

NHS Bradford district and Craven CCGs have agreed to adopt NHS England’s guidance on reducing prescribing of over the counter medicines.

This means that if you have a minor condition that can be easily treated with medicines that are available to buy, your GP may ask you to buy the medicine rather than issue a prescription.

Also new to the surgery is the Self Care Area.

This includes a Blood Pressure Monitoring machine for patients to use and a Weighing scales which calculates your Body Mass Index (BMI).
