The work of a GP practice team

We would like to say a huge THANK YOU to all our patients during the COVID-19 period. We are very grateful for your continued support and understanding.
Please continue to call the surgery if you need a doctor or nurse appointment and if you are invited to attend the surgery for a pre booked appointment you will no longer be asked to wait outside.
Can we ask that you bring your own face covering to preserve our PPE stocks and on entering the building please have your mask on and use our hand sanitiser before approaching the reception desk area.
We will only be open for pre booked appointments, not drop in at this point, so if you have any queries please continue to call us or use our online eConsult.
If you have a prescription request please continue to drop in the letter box or use the online facility as we won’t be able to take this over the desk.
We need your help to keep our staff safe and to protect our vulnerable patients who are invited into the building for appointments. We hope you can support the teams at both practices to look after you and your family.
Why are GP practices still working differently?

Face coverings and social distancing still in place in GP practices
COVID restrictions end in many settings in England from Monday 19 July. However, Public Health England’s infection prevention control guidelines are set to remain in place for all staff, patients and visitors.
Therefore we are asking all staff and patients at IG Medical to continue to wear a face mask/covering (unless you are exempt) and follow social distancing rules.
We thank you for your continued support in keeping our staff and patients protected.

COVID-19 / coronavirus
GP practice phone lines are extremely busy at the moment. Please do not contact your GP practice for information about the vaccine or vaccine ‘passports’. Please help keep phone lines free for those patients who need urgent help. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
Walking for Health – recruitment of walkers
Would you be interested in leading walks from the doctor’s surgery, supporting people to live happier, healthier lives through short group walks?
Whether you’re a keen walker, you’re looking to start getting more active, or you want to develop your administrative skills, we’ve got opportunities for everyone.
For the walk leader role, you will complete a ‘Walking for Health’ training course, which is free of charge, and shadow and lead a walk with an experienced ‘Walking for Health’ walk leader.
To register your interest please contact Simon Green at Champions Show the Way, mobile: 07738 985674, telephone: 01274 321911 or email: email@example.com
Extended access appointments
GP practices across Airedale, Wharfedale and Craven are now able to offer patients increased access to routine appointments with GPs, nurses and other healthcare professionals from locally-based hubs.
This service provides all registered patients with access to pre-bookable routine GP appointments from 6.30pm–8pm Monday to Friday, and from 8.30am–11.30am on weekends.
IG Medical participates in the Care navigation scheme, which is designed to help direct patients to the most appropriate care.
As part of the care navigation initiative, receptionists may ask callers seeking to book an appointment a few simple questions to establish who could best meet their needs.
Patients might then be offered a slot within the practice – for example with a GP, nurse or pharmacist – or be referred to other services e.g. wellbeing or community services.
Care navigation will only be applicable to adults and is completely voluntary.
E-Consult – contact your doctor’s online
Fill out a simple online form to get advice and treatment by the end of the next working day.
If you have a recent persistent cough or fever please do not attempt to come to the surgery even if you have an appointment. Instead stay at home and self-isolate for 7 days.
Please see the NHS 111 coronavirus pages for further advice.
