Welcome to Bridgeway Practice

Due to the current Covid-19 situation and the advice received from Public Health England, we have suspended all routine face to face appointments.  All appointments will first be telephoned triaged, if an appointment is then needed, then and only then will our patient be invited in.  We are asking for patients to stay away from the surgery where ever possible.  Please telephone for any appointments or any further information.

We thank you for your understanding during this difficult time.

With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

WE NOW OFFER SAME DAY ROUTINE APPOINTMENTS.  This is in addition to our 3 day pre-bookable, same day emergency, online specific appointments and GP+.  These appointments will open up at 8.30am every day, enabling patients to book either by telephone or in person and will be offered on a first come first served basis.

New Patients Welcome

We are currently accepting registrations for new patients.  Please see a member of our reception staff who will be more than happy to help you complete a registration form.  Please bear in mind that we do require 2 forms of current ID, preferably 1 to be a photo ID and the other ID to confirm your current address.  If you have any questions, please feel free to drop by.

Get Well, Keep Well

Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.

CORONAVIRUS - (COVID19)

The NHS and Public Health England (PHE) are extremely well prepared for outbreaks of new infectious diseases. The NHS has put in place measures to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff while also ensuring services are available to the public as normal.

The risk to the general public is moderate.

Call 111 now if you've been:

  •            to Wuhan or Hubei Province in China; Iran, an Italian town under containment or Republic of Korea towns under containment in the last 14 days (even if you do not have symptoms)

  •      to other parts of China, plus Hong Kong, Japan, Macau, Malaysia, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, North Italy, Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar in the last 14 days and have a cough, high temperature or shortness of breath (even if it's mild)

  •      in close contact with someone with confirmed coronavirus

Do not go to a GP surgery, community pharmacy or hospital, Call 111, stay indoors and avoid close contact with other people

Further information is available on www.nhs.uk.

Like the common cold, coronavirus infection usually occurs through close contact with a person with novel coronavirus via cough and sneezes or hand contact. A person can also be infected by touching contaminated surfaces if they do not wash their hands.

The risk of being in close contact with a person with coronavirus or contaminated surfaces is very low at the current time.

Testing of suspected coronavirus cases is carried out in line with strict regulations. This means that suspected cases are kept in isolation, away from public areas of the hospital and returned home also in isolation. Any equipment that come into contact with suspected cases are thoroughly cleaned as appropriate. Specific guidance has also been shared with NHS staff to help safeguard them and others. Patients can be reassured that their safety is a top priority, and are encouraged to attend all appointments as usual.

 Everyone is being reminded to follow Public Health England advice to:

  •      Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch your cough or    sneeze. Then bin the tissue, and wash your hands, or use a sanitiser gel.

  •      Wash your hands often with soap and water, especially after using public transport. Use a sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available.

  •      Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth with unwashed hands.

  •      Avoid close contact with people who are unwell.

The Herbert Protocol

Herbert Protocol Information Leaflet     The Herbert Protocol Registration Form

The Herbert Protocol was first introduced by West Yorkshire Police and is now a national scheme which encourages carers to compile useful information which could be used in the event of a venerable person going missing.  The idea is to complete a form, recording all vital details and information such as if there is any medication required, mobile numbers, places previously located and a photograph. There is nothing more frightening than when a loved one, friend or neighbour fails to return when they should. For people living with dementia, this could be quite common and The Herbert Protocol could provide you with some peace of mind. Please see the above leaflet for further information and the form to register.
