 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.

Clinics


Asthma Clinic

All patients diagnosed with asthma and Chronic Obstructive Airways Disease (COPD) are invited to an annual check up to ensure that they are on the most appropriate and effective treatment for their condition. A Practice Nurse runs this Clinic.

Antenatal Clinic

Women across Bradford and Airedale are being encouraged to go direct to a midwife as soon as they know they are pregnant.

NHS Bradford and Airedale, in partnership with Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Airedale NHS Foundation Trust, has launched a new ‘direct access to a midwife’ campaign to let mums-to-be know about their choices and to get their pregnancy care started sooner.

To help women get in touch with their local midwives, phones numbers and email addresses have been set up for each maternity hospital. Women who make contact can book their first appointment with a midwife so they can start getting support early in their pregnancy.
