WILSDEN SURGERY CULLINGWORTH SURGERY
Welcome to The Wilsden Medical Practice
We are committed to providing high quality health care to around 10,000 patients across Wilsden, Cullingworth, Harden, Denholme, Sandy Lane and Allerton.
We have a large clinical team consisting of seven GPs, some with special interests, two GP Registrars, four Practice Nurses and two Health Care Assistants. As well as being a training practice where we regularly undertake training of healthcare professionals, together with our team of allied health workers we are able to offer a comprehensive range of services, including some minor surgery procedures at our purpose built minor surgery suite in Wilsden.
To ensure you receive the best treatment available, it is important you see the correct clinician for your condition. Modern GP practices now offer a range of services, some that were previously only available in hospitals. Please ask a member of our reception team and they can advise you.
Summary of Medical Records:
If you are already signed up to our on line services you will be able to access a summary of your medical record, this includes repeat medications, allergies and demographics. If you wish to view any other aspect of your record then you must apply to the Practice in writing and there will be a charge.
Where to go for extra help and advice
There are lots of free, easily accessible online resources where you can find more information about self-care and how to prevent the onset of serious conditions such as type 2 diabetes:
- NHS Choices is a comprehensive website which gives you reliable advice on many conditions, it also allows you to search for services and has a wide range of tools to help you better manage your care such as a symptom checker.
- The Self-Care Forum aims to reach out to patients and the public about self-care and make it a part of everyday life. The site has lots of resources and information packs on how to self-care.
- Pharmacists are a good first port of call. They are medically trained and can give you lots of self-care and recommend what medicine to take. Many pharmacies now also have a consultation room so you can discuss any issues in private as you would with your GP. Many pharmacies are open later at night and at weekends. You don’t need an appointment to visit your pharmacist and it is often more convenient than going to your GP practice.
- Patient is a trusted online medical resource that has lots of evidence based information on a wide range of medical, health and wellbeing topics.
If it is urgent but not an emergency, call NHS 111 (available 24/7, 365 days a year), their fully trained advisors will be able to advise you on what to do.
We have developed packs for four of the most common conditions for self-care in the Bradford area:
