Important information about the coronavirus (COVID-19)
The NHS across Bradford and West Yorkshire will continue to be better prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases, if the public continues to follow Public Health England advice.
The NHS put in place measures to ensure the safety of patients and staff which has meant your patient experience has been subject to change.
The new advice from the Chief Medical Officer is to stay at home for 10 days if you have either:
- a high temperature or
- a new continuous cough
- change (worsening) in your sense of taste or smell
If you live with other people, they will ALL have to isolate for 14 days until you return a negative result for the COVID-19 test.
If you live with someone who is:
- 70 or over and has a long-term condition or,
- is pregnant or,
- has a weakened immune system,
try to find somewhere else for them to stay for 14 days.
If you have to stay at home together, try to keep away from each other as much as possible.
Do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.
You do not need to contact 111 to tell them you're
staying at home.
COVID-19 TESTING SITES
Mobile testing units
Mobile testing units are a quick and easy way to get a coronarvirus test, If you would like a test please make sure you book appointment before arriving either by calling 119 or going online at www.nhs.uk/coronavirus.
These pop-up units, run by national coronavirus testing programme staff, will be available in community locations throughout the district.
The units are available for anyone who has symptoms of Covid-19, such as a high temperature, a new cough, or a change in sense of taste or smell, or are concerned they may have the virus.
A face covering will need to be worn, and social distancing must also be followed at all times, when at the site and while travelling to and from it.
You must have an appointment for any testing centre apart from Centenary Square. Appointments are during the day and are released the evening before.
2020 Flu Campaign
No walk-in Clinics
Booked appointments - ONLY
Mon 21 Sep - Fri 23 Oct 20
We find ourselves in unprecedented times. In a pre-COVID environment, patients would have had a 2-3 month period in which to ensure they received their Influenza Vaccine.
Unfortunately, due to our current predicament, we have a 5-week window, starting 21st September, in which to achieve the initial group of vaccines before we begin to prepare for the second group of vaccines for the remainder of patients aged 50 to 64 years old.
For this second group, we await further direction from NHS England. In order that NHS England can commit to planning and executing this second group, ALL patients who where previously eligible for the vaccines need to have had it administered, or informed the Practice of their decision to NOT to have the vaccine, by 30th October 2020.
We have set up a dedicated 'Flu 2020' line for patients to book-in for their flu vaccine starting Mon 7th September 2020. The number is 01274 697615, manned between 1000 - 1200hrs Monday to Friday. This will be a 'First Come, First Serve' basis, and there will be no choice of Clinic.
DO NOT BOOK A FLU APPOINTMENT VIA THE RECEPTIONISTS - THEY DO NOT HAVE ACCESS.
Drop-in Blood Clinics
Until further notice, the Wednesday and Friday Drop-in Blood Clinics have been canceled. Should you need to have a Blood Test, we have created dedicated appointments throughout the week to meet demand.
PLEASE DO NOT TURN UP FOR AN APPOINTMENT
BEFORE CONTACTING THE PRACTICE.
