NHS Health Checks
We offer a free NHS Health Check which is a check-up for adults aged between 40-74, designed to spot early signs of stroke, kidney disease, heart disease, type 2 diabetes or dementia. Please speak to a Receptionist for further information.
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.
· Bradford midwives can be contacted on: 01274 364502 or
