Why are GP practices still working differently?
If the pandemic is over, why aren't GP practices open?
Find out how we are working, how you can stay alert, stay safe and help protect yourself, your loved ones and local services. Please note our Branch sites have re-opened.
GP Computer System Failure
On Tuesday 14th September the Saltaire and Windhill Medical Partnership - along with GP practices across Bradford - suffered a major disruption to our computer systems. This resulted in staff not being able to access medical records or appointment lists, and being unable to issue prescriptions as they normally would. Despite this the practice was still able to remain fully open to patients, all appointments were carried out and no patient was turned away. We would like to take the opportunity to thank our staff for their patience during a difficult day, and our patients for their understanding.
Flu Jab Season
Every year in early autumn it is time for the National Influenza Vaccination campaign.
Global shortage of blood sample bottles
A supplier to the NHS has advised us of a global shortage of some equipment used for taking blood tests. Anyone who needs a test for urgent health problems will still get one but where your clinician recommends that it’s safe to do so, then you may be asked to come back for a test at a later date, or your appointment may be rescheduled. Given the nature of the shortage, we cannot give an exact date for when the test will be rescheduled, but please be assured that if your condition or symptoms require it, then you will get a test, and we will be re-booking your test when supplies become more easily available. If your condition or symptoms change or get worse, please contact the NHS as you would normally.
From Monday 19th July patients and staff are still required to wear a face covering in all healthcare settings, including the GP Practice
This is in line with current Public Health Guidance to help reduce the risk of spreading illness.
A reminder that our practice has a zero tolerance approach to abuse of staff or patients.
If we are closed you can still get help...
Try using our online services via the "virtual surgery" to solve your problem out of hours. 111 (and in life threatening emergencies 999) are also options if you have no online access.
We are a patient centered practice
How do we support you and those close to you, to keep healthy, happy and active?
