Telephones

 

If you know which option you need when you contact the surgery via phone you don’t need to wait for the prompt to select your number. As soon as the recorded message starts press the correct number and you will be transferred directly to the correct department. Below are the available options.

Option 1 - Emergencies (only for medical emergencies, no other calls will be taken on this line)

 

Option 2 - Appointments/Reception

Option 3 - Home Visits

Emergencies

If a doctor is required in an emergency telephone 01274584223

Home Visits If you are too ill to attend surgery and need to request a home visit please contact the surgery before 10:00 a.m.

The Emerald Suite

The Emerald Suite runs specialist services, some of which are hospital services that are run in the community rather than at hospital.  Access to these services is via the GP.

Cancelling your Appointment

If you are unable to attend an appointment with one of the doctors or nurses, please telephone or use the link at the bottom of this page to cancel your appointment.

New Patients

If you wish to register with us please telephone or call in and make an appointment to see the practice nurse for a new patient interview.  You will be asked to complete a registration form and you will need to bring 2 forms of identification e.g. passport and recent utility bill.

Up to Date Information

 

For many of our patients we don’t have up-to-date details of Smoking and Alcohol consumption. It would be of great assistance to us if you could click on the link at the bottom of the page “Your Clinical Record” and fill in these details. Please be assured that this is confidential.

Research

Windhill Green Medical practice is involved in clinical research with the Primary Care Research Network.  As a patient you may be invited to participate however you can decline or later withdraw without there being any question that this will affect your future care and treatment at the practice.

Prescriptions

Following guidance from the Department of Health regarding safety issues surrounding telephone ordering from the 5th November 2012 the practice will no longer be able to accept telephone requests for repeat prescriptions. 

There are many ways in which you can order you repeat prescription. The most effective way is online and you can also book GP appointments too! Just ask reception how to sign up. You can also leave your repeat order slip at reception or post the slip, ticking exactly what you need. Alternatively you can ask a chemist to order them on your behalf on a monthly basis.

SystmOnline Changes

If you are registered for using SystmOnline, you will now be able to access basic information held within your medical record. The information held is as secure as your entire medical record, the data is stored in the same way.

Training Doctors

The training document below explains how you can help future doctors.

Training new doctors

Education and Training

The practice has a long history of commitment to training. We are one of the practices involved in the Bradford Vocational Scheme and GP Registrars join us for six month attachments. They are fully qualified doctors and are specialising in general practice under the guidance of Dr Urwin, Dr Winter and Dr Petty.

The practice is also involved in undergraduate training and we have medical students under the care of Dr Eldridge and Dr Passant.

The practice has been involved in the training of nurse practitioners and has been recognised as a Teaching Centre.

Student nurses are regularly attached to our nursing/health visitor teams.

Due to the training commitments involved in teaching, certain doctors may not be available all of the time; the practice has, however, taken on board other doctors to ensure that standards of service are maintained.

GP Appraisal

All doctors in the practice take part in the national and annual appraisal scheme. This is mandatory and overseen by the Primary Care Trust.

Training Tomorrow's General Practitioners

We believe the training of the future doctors is crucial to ensure the continued quality of General Practice. To contribute to this we undertake the training of GP Registrars and medical students.

GP Registrar

There is always a GP registrar on attachment. A GP registrar is a qualified doctor who will go on to specialise in general practice.

Medical Students

There are often 4th and 5th year medical students in attendance. You can choose not to have them present if you wish.
