Welcome to Wibsey & Queensbury Medical Practice
KEEPING PATIENTS SAFE
From 19th July the lawful requirement to wear face masks will be lifted. There are still a high number of COVID-19 cases in Bradford, and the Practice will continue to exercise caution to minimise the risk of infection. As such we will continue to ask patients to wear face coverings to their appointments. Staff in the building will continue to wear full PPE and will collect patients from reception to minimise the risk of transmission.
should you require an appointment please call from 8am Monday to Friday we kindly ask that you do not attend the practice unless you have been asked to do so.
You will be in close proximity to clinicians and potentially other vulnerable patients when you come for your appointment and it is still possible to catch and spread COVID-19 even if you are fully vaccinated. It is therefore important for us to continue with the measures we currently have in place to keep patients and staff safe, and to minimise disruption to our service.
Everyone must remain cautious as cases of COVID-19 remain high. Please keep yourself and others safe by booking for your COVID-19 vaccination, getting tested and self-isolating if you develop symptoms.
UPDATED Tuesday 27th July 2021
In response to the news reports relating to how GP practices are having to open up. We would like to assure our patients that we are open and continue to provide services just as we have been doing throughout the pandemic. Face to Face appointments have always been made available to all where there is a clinician need at Wibsey and Queensbury Medical Practice.
During May 2021 we carried out 2197 appointments by face to face, telephone or video calls. Compared to previous year of May 2020, we carried out 1362.
Appointments are delivered either by face to face, telephone or video calls - our team will assess with you what the most appropriate method is. Staff at the surgery will ask you specific's about your health needs, the GP's here will tell staff to ask this so we can help you.
Unfortunately, we are seeing an increase in abuse directed towards our staff. The GP's tell our staff to ask for specific information about your health needs where you are comfortable doing this. Please remember that we are here to help you, so please be kind when speaking to us.

You do not need to be registered for our online service to use econsult. The practice does experience large increase in the number of telephone calls that we receive each day. This is resulting in patients having to queue for longer on the phones. To help with this, we are asking as many patients as possible to use our E-Consult service.

This allows you to send messages to the surgery from your laptop, smartphone, or PC at any time of the day or night, and it can be done 7 days per week. When the practice receives a message, a response will be sent within 2 working day (except when it is a bank holiday or when the practice is closed.)
