About Us

We are a small, award winning, general practice serving the people of Bingley, Gilstead, Eldwick and the surrounding areas for over 30 years. We are based in Bingley, and our aim is to provide an efficient, high-quality service in a friendly atmosphere.  We provide the latest in terms of modern medical care, yet maintain a personal touch for our patients. We specialise in palliative care and elderly care, but we provide all the general care services expected of a surgery and more. Our immediate practice area is Bingley, Gilstead, Eldwick, Crossflatts, East and West Morton, Cottingley, Nab Wood, Sandbeds and Riddlesden. We also train medical students from Leeds University and other future general practitioners. Our doctors take pride in directing the next generation of health care providers. 

The practice is 'working to become a dementia friendly' health care provider. To visit our action plan please go to: Dementia Action Alliance.

Patients, family and carers can access supportive information about Dementia by visiting: Alzheimer's Society.

Our Approach

We like to make things personal. All patients are designated a named general practitioner. The accountable doctor's role is to take overall responsibility for the care and support the surgery provides to the patient. If you are unsure of your named GP please ask a member of our reception team when you next attend the surgery. We are flexible in our surgery times to fit patient schedules where possible, and we do home visits as well, especially when providing elderly and palliative care.

GP Training Practice


 

The Practice has been accredited by the Yorkshire Deanery (University of Leeds Dept of Postgraduate Medical Education) as a training practice for GPs.

This means the practice will have attached to it a qualified doctor in training to specialise in general practice. Each doctor is with us for a period of 6-12 months. You may therefore be offered an appointment with either Dr. Hafiz, Dr. Whitfield or the new doctor.

There may be times when the new doctor may be videoing his/her consultations. This is purely for educational training purposes of the doctor concerned and you will be asked whether you would like the camera switched off. The videos are used according to the Royal College of General Practitioners' guidelines and are destroyed within 12 months.

We are confident that the addition of a trainee GP will enhance your experience at the practice.

We also teach medical students from the University of Leeds Medical School as well as supervise nurse practitioners from the University of Huddersfield.
