Welcome to Ilkley & Wharfedale Medical Practice

It provides essential, additional and enhanced services under the General Medical NHS Contract.
LATEST INFORMATION: COVID-19 Vaccine
The NHS is currently offering Covid-19 vaccinations to people in the following priority groups:
- Cohort 5 – people aged 65-69
- Cohort 6 – people with underlying health conditions that put them at greater risk from Covid-19 and carers of elderly and disabled people.
- Cohort 7 – people aged 60-64
- Cohort 8 – people aged 55-59
If you are in one of these groups, you will be contacted when it is your turn for a vaccination, either by your practice or the NHS national booking service.
Anyone aged 55 or over can book an appointment through the national booking service without waiting for a letter or by calling 119. This will be extended to people in cohort 9 (50-54) over the next few weeks so keep an eye on the site homepage to see when you can use the service.
We know lots of people will be eager to get protected but please could we kindly ask you not to contact the practice for information about the vaccine or to ask for an appointment, as you will not be able to get one until you receive an invitation. The NHS is aiming to have offered everyone in the first nine priority groups a first vaccination by the middle of April 2021.
Please note that vaccinations are free of charge and only available through the NHS. Anyone who claims to be able to provide you with a vaccine for a fee is likely to be committing a crime and should be reported to the Police online or by calling 112. The NHS will never ask you to press a button on your keypad or send a text asking you to confirm you want the vaccine.

THANK YOU for your understanding and support during the COVID-19 pandemic and we encourage all our patients to please take up the offer of the vaccine when you are invited.
GP services during the COVID-19 pandemic
We will only be open for pre-booked appointments, not drop in at this point, so if you have any queries please continue to call us or use our online eConsult (please see below)
Can we ask that you bring your own face covering to preserve our PPE stocks and on entering the building please have your mask on and use our hand sanitiser before approaching the reception desk area.
If you have a prescription request please continue to drop in the external letter box or use the online facility as we won’t be able to take this over the desk.
We need your help to keep our staff safe and to protect our vulnerable patients who are invited into the building for appointments. We hope you can support the teams at both practices to look after you and your family.
