 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.



Morning Surgery - Open Access

The Practice provides an Open Access surgery every weekday morning between 9-10am for acute problems and an appointment is not necessary. There are also some pre-bookable appointment most mornings.

If the surgery is busy you should be prepared to wait to see the doctor as patients are seen in order of arrival.

If another patient appears to have been seen before you they will be seeing a different doctor/nurse to you.

We will try to ensure you see a doctor of your choice but this may not always be possible.

Please note that in the Open Access surgery the doctors cannot complete claim forms or perform non-NHS medicals. You will need to contact a doctor to arrange a time for non-NHS medicals.

Afternoon Surgery - ALL Pre-booked Appointments

Speak to the receptionist to arrange a routine appointment with the doctor or nurse or you may book online. 

We advise patients to see the same doctor for the same condition wherever possible.

Routine appointments can usually be booked 4-6 weeks in advance and we will always endeavour to ensure that you see the doctor of your choice. However, if a doctor is on annual leave, surgeries may change and you may be asked to see an alternative doctor or a locum doctor.

Please do not ring between 9-11.30am to book a routine appointment as this prevents more urgent calls from reaching us.
