Coronavirus Advice

The government has announced we are moving into the delay phase of COVID19. This means, If you have a continuous cough OR a high temperature, you should stay at home for at least 7 days from when your symptoms started. We expect the NHS to be exceptionally busy in the coming weeks. If you have serious symptoms that you cannot manage at home or persists longer than 7 days, please go to NHS 111 online, or call 111 if you cannot go online. Do NOT visit a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital.

PARKRUN TAKEOVER

Bankfield Surgery took over the Parkrun at Wellhome Park, Brighouse on Saturday 30th November.  For details of what the Parkrun is all about click below.

To register or look at the Parkrun website please click here. We would love to see as many patients as possible at the Parkrun events. 

Annual Reviews - If you feel that you are due an annual review and you have not been called (due in your birthday month), please ring the surgery on 01422 374662 to make an appointment.

Named GP

You may be aware that practices are required to inform all their patients with a named GP who will have overall responsibility for the care and support that the surgery provides them.

For administrative purposes, the named GP for our patients will be the GP with whom they are registered with.

This does not prevent you from seeing any GP within the practice as you currently do, neither does it change the GP you normally see.

If you are unsure of your registered GP please ask a member of our reception team when you next attend the surgery. If you have any questions or wish to discuss this further please contact us on 01422 374662.

MenACWY Vaccination

Eligible patients are those who:

  • are attending university/further education for the first time
  • are aged 19 years on 31 August 2017 up to the age of 25 years (i.e. the day before their 25th birthday)

It is very important that you take up the vaccine. It is being offered in response to a rapidly growing increase in cases of the meningococcal disease group W but also protects against meningococcal A,C and Y.

If you are planning on going to university, please make an appointment as soon as possible before leaving for university.  You are more at risk of meningitis and septicemia in the first weeks at university when you mix with lots of new people.

However, even if you are not leaving for university you are still eligible for this vaccination so please contact the surgery to make an appointment.
