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. Click here to learn more about how and why we process your information. 

Further details of the services and location maps are available here.

 

 

 

Home Visits

homevisitsHome visit requests are only to be used by people that are unable to leave their homes, or are seriously ill.

Under our NHS contract, home visits are not an automatic right, and the doctor retains ultimate discretion over their necessity.

If you request a specific doctor, we will try to respect your wishes; however we cannot guarantee this choice.

Please try to request the visit before 10.30am on the day.  Requests after this time may be assessed over the telephone by a doctor.

Our receptionists will ask you for some details.  This is to assist us.  Not all medical problems are the same and some are more urgent than others.  Very urgent problems may be directed to hospital, but our receptionists will inform you if this is the case. 

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the Practice..
