At Leylands Medical Centre we provide on average over 40 000 face to face GP appointments a year over our two sites. That’s almost 280 days of 24/7 consulting!
Routine GP and advanced nurse practitioner appointments can be booked online, via telephone or in person at the surgery, up to four weeks in advance. Our GPs see patients at ten minute intervals. If you have a complex medical problem, or something that might take longer than usual, we ask that consider booking a double appointment.You can ask to see a doctor of your choice, and we will try our best to accommodate this.
In addition, we have a daily walk in clinic (sit and wait) which runs from Leylands between 08:45-11:00 which is appropriate for many conditions. No appointment is needed and if you feel you have an urgent problem that can't wait then come to the walk in clinic.
Many things can be dealt with over the telephone, so book a phone appointment if you think this might be the case.
When making an appointment with the GP, you might want to consider if there are any other options first. Read this guide on when to see your GP, and have a look at our guidance on self care and minor illness
Also don’t forget that there are other community health professionals who might be able to help with your problem, so your GP is not the only port of call!
Your local pharmacist is able to diagnose and treat many minor medical problems, and they will also be able to point you in the right direction if you need further help.
Read this guide to see what your local pharmacist can help you with.
Simple painkillers like paracetamol and ibuprofen (including liquid for children) can be cheaply bought from the pharmacy without a prescription, without a need to see a doctor
If you have a non urgent eye problem, your local optometrist can also assess, diagnose and manage this, and point you in the right direction if you need further help
If you have a dental problem, going to see your GP often only delays getting the correct treatment. See your dentist instead. If you are not registered with one then call 111 to access the unscheduled dental care service.
Our excellent nurses and healthcare assistants have a wide range of skills. They are involved in the management of long term conditions and also undertake many other health activities such as:

* you will usually need to see a doctor first before being referred to the nurse for these
For your convenience the practice offers a Walk In Clinic to see a GP which is held Monday to Friday between 8.45am and 11.00am* at Leylands Medical Centre. No appointment is needed, just come to reception, book in and wait.
This clinic is for single problems only.
It is NOT appropriate to use the Walk In Clinic for discussion of results, routine medication reviews, discussion of hospital letters, obtaining sick notes or repeat prescriptions. You will be asked to book a routine appointment if you present for any of these reasons.
Due to the nature of this clinic, if the problem is complex or needs more time, the clinician may rebook you into another clinic if they feel appropriate.
*On occasion, during exceptionally busy times, we may close the walk in clinic earlier than 11am. This is for a combination of safety reasons and to manage the waiting time.
You can come for a blood test to our drop in clinic. No appointment is needed. Click here for times.
We specialise in the assessment, diagnosis and management of acute and chronic musculoskeletal pain, soft tissue and sports injuries. Currently providing NHS services from two sites across Bradford, we see patients that are referred from their General Practitioner for further assessment. We treat and manage the vast majority of patients within our clinics, and accurately identify those patients needing further specialist assessment, helping them to receive the right treatment at the right time.
Our health visitors are happy to advise you about the health and welfare of babies and young children, they also perform hearing tests on children and developmental assessments at 8 months and 4 years. They run a comprehensive range of support sessions for new mums to which you will be invited following the birth of your baby.
The baby immunisation clinic is usually held on a Tuesday afternoon at Leylands Medical Centre and Wednesday afternoon at Wrose Health Centre and is run by a practice nurse. There is a computerised call-up system and most children will receive an automatic reminder through the post at the right time. Please then telephone to make an appointment. If you feel that your child is overdue an injection, please contact the practice nurse to discuss.
Adult Immunisation & Travel
Information, advice sheets and immunisations are offered by the practice nurses. It is advisable to make a telephone appointment with the practice nurse to discuss what you need at least eight weeks before you travel, since vaccination programmes can be quite complex. Not all immunisations for travel are available through the NHS and it may be necessary to charge a fee. Certain medicines for taking abroad are available on private prescription. Details are advertised in the surgery and may also be obtained from reception.
All patients who are over 65, patients of any age with chronic heart, lung or kidney disease, diabetes or asthma and residents in nursing homes should have flu vaccinations. If you have previously had a vaccination you will be sent an invitation every year in the autumn. We hold drop in flu clinics at Leylands Medical Centre and Wrose Health Centre. Pneumococcal vaccination is currently being offered to all patients over 65.
Contraception and Sexual Health Clinic
Our doctors and nurses provide sexual health advice, free condoms and a full range of contraceptive services, including coil fittings and implants. These can be booked with Dr Padfield please phone the practice to make an appointment.
The practice offers Chlamydia Screening to patients between 15 and 25. A urine sample is all that is needed. The results are confidential and are sent direct to the patient not the surgery. Screening packs can be picked up in reception or from the doctor or nurse.
A regular antenatal clinic is held by our midwifery team. Our aim is to provide a personal and efficient service throughout your pregnancy and to co-operate closely with your local maternity unit. If you wish to speak to a midwife please ring 01274 322273 at any time.
Well Woman Clinic
For smear tests and general health advice, please make an appointment with the practice nurse.
Health Promotion Clinics
Health screening involves picking up the earliest signs of illness before it has chance to damage health. There are a variety of ways in which this is offered in our practice. There is an open invitation to all our adult patients to see the practice nurse for a health check including weight, height and blood pressure. Practice nurses can advise you on your diet, smoking cessation and other aspects of your lifestyle. Cholesterol screening and ECG monitoring are available on request from the doctor.
The removal of moles, cysts, in-growing toenails and injections of joints can be undertaken at the surgery, saving you a hospital visit. Please make an appointment to see the doctor first if you think you may require any of these services.
This clinic is run by our practice nurses and monitors asthma control. If you are using inhalers, you should have a check-up every year. Please bring your inhalers with you when you attend the clinic.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease Clinic
If you have been diagnosed with COPD you will be asked to attend at least once a year. Please bring your inhalers with you.
The clinic is run by a team of dedicated professionals skilled in diabetes, including dieticians, podiatrist, nurses, and doctors. All diabetics are invited to attend regularly to help look after their diabetes.
Healthy Heart Clinic
All patients with a history of heart problems are invited to attend once a year for a check-up and advice.
We are able to provide physiotherapy services at the surgery and if appropriate the doctor will refer you to these services.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to complete our travel vaccination questionnaire. The best way to complete this is online by registering for our online services, then going to the 'Questionnaires' section and submitting the 'Travel Questionnaire'
Alternatively you can download the form below, complete it and drop it into reception
It is important to complete this questionnaire as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel. Some vaccines may have to be ordered in specially.
Please contact the surgery (via online message or call after 10am) a week after completing the form. This will give the nurse time to look through your record and make the correct recommendations. You can then arrange an appointment with a nurse to have the vaccines administered. This appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS
You can also download our helpful travel advice leaftlet above which contains everything you need to know about staying safe whilst travelling

There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
Travelling in Europe
If you are travelling to Europe a very useful booklet has been published with advice and guidance to help you get the most out of your holiday. To visit please click:- http://ec.europa.eu/publications/booklets/eu_glance/86/en.pdf (this is a large document and may take a minute or two to view)
Some services provided are not covered under our contract with the NHS and therefore attract charges. Examples include the following:
The fees charged are based on the British Medical Association (BMA) suggested scales and our reception staff will be happy to advise you about them along with appointment availability.
For letters, you will be given a form to complete with details of the request and the information you think should be included.
The NHS provides medical care, and writing such letters for patients is not covered by the NHS contract. This means that the GP has to do this work in their own time and the cost of this has to recuperated from the requesting party.
Whilst a letter may seem like a simple thing, the cost involved to produce it includes things like the cost of the premises, secretarial and reception time, printer consumables, and of course the doctors time. It is no different to asking for a letter from a lawyer or accountant.
The GP takes full professional responsibility for whatever is written in the letter, therefore to put their signature to a letter, a GP has to verify to the best of their ability that it is true and accurate. This could mean trawling though the entire medical notes for a patient, so you can see how even a one line letter could sometimes take 20 minutes or more to write and verify.
A doctors main role is to provide medical services to our patients. Writing such letters has to be done the GP’s own time when they are not seeing patients or dealing with clinical work. This means that letters cannot be done urgently, and sometimes take longer depending on how busy the doctor is. We aim to have all letter requests completed within six weeks.
