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.

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 diabetes care is provided by the doctors with the help of our practice nurses. We also work closely with the hospital's Diabetes Specialist Nurse.

We offer pre-conception, full ante-natal and post-natal care. Advice and check-ups are carried out by the doctors and midwives. For more information on the Healthy Start Scheme, go to their website at: www.healthystart.nhs.uk.
A variety of minor surgical procedures can be undertaken in the Practice after consultation with one of the doctors.
Our nurses run weekly comprehensive travel advice and immunisation clinics.
