Changes to our Appointment System
IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ:
From 1st March 2017 all urgent same day appointments will be released at 8:00am and you will no longer be asked to call back at 1:15pm. In addition to this you will no longer be asked to call into the practice for your telephone consulation. Instead the GP will call you on the telephone number you provide anytime up to 15:00 on that day. Please note that the GP will only attempt to call you twice.
We hope these changes will improve patient experience and the service we offer.
Connected Yorkshire is a new project that brings together information from GP practices in Bradford with information from other parts of the health system, such as Bradford Teaching Hospitals and Bradford Council. This allows the health system to make sure services are more joined-up and helps us understand where we can improve care for patients.
There will be no identifiable information (such as names, date of birth and address) available to the Connected Yorkshire project, so patient confidentiality and privacy will be protected.

NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP FOR ALL PATIENTS
From the 1 April 2015, we are required under the General Medical Services Contract to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients. If you wish to know who this is, or have a preference as to which GP you are allocated, please contact Reception.
These new arrangements do not prevent you making an appointment or seeing any GP of your choosing within the practice as you would normally do.
