The NHS Friends and Family Test is a simple question that patients across the country are asked about the care they have received.
Patients are asked: “How likely are you to recommend our service to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?”
Patients can choose from a number of responses ranging from ‘extremely likely’ to ‘extremely unlikely’.
The test aims to encourage patient feedback, show patients that their views and experiences matter to the NHS, and improve patient experience
Self Care is about looking after yourself; living a healthy lifestyle and looking at what you can do and want to do- rather than what you can’t do.
It is also about taking responsibility for your own health and wellbeing with the support of the people involved in your care.
This could be brushing your teeth regularly, taking medicine when you have a cold, or doing some exercise. It is really important to help keep yourself as well as possible.
We have a useful Self Care leaflet available to pick up in the surgery or access it here Keep Calm and Self Care

24hr Emergency Dentist - telephone NHS 111.As in many other parts of the UK there is a general shortage of NHS dentists in Bradford. If you already have a dentist you are happy with, rarely have problems and would be able to get to your dentist when necessary, it would be wise not to change. Once registered, your dentist will invite you to attend for a check-up once a year, if you do not attend when invited, you may find you are removed from their list.You can find your nearest NHS dentist on the following website: http://www.nhs.uk/Pages/homepage.aspx

Our nurses run weekly comprehensive travel advice and immunisation clinics. Please remember to plan well in advance of your travels (at least 6 to 8 weeks if possible), so that you have time to receive any necessary immunisations - it is never too early to come and discuss your travel plans with the nurse! More information is available on the above tab.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
Click here for our travel advice leaflet
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.
Travel Health Questionnaire
To help us offer the appropriate advice, please fill out the online form before coming to see the nurse.
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe the EU has published useful information for travellers on the European website.
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
