GP hubs to help people with coronavirus symptoms see their GP

Posted by: ethan - Posted on:

GP hubs will manage the urgent primary medical needs of patients who have possible symptoms of coronavirus, or are self-isolating as part of a household.

They will look after you if you have any medical problem that does not require treatment at a hospital and would normally be provided by your own family doctor (GP).

We expect that these hubs will serve a small number of patients who have possible symptoms of coronavirus, and/or who are self-isolating as part of a household, and need to urgently see a GP in person.

The GP practices based at each of the hub sites remain open but have temporarily relocated.

All GP practices in Bradford district and Craven can request an appointment for patients at these hubs.

However, your GP practice will assess you first, via a telephone, video or e-consultation and will then give you a time when a GP from the “red” hub will call you back.

After a further telephone assessment, the GP at the “red” hub will decide whether or not you need a face-to-face appointment.

You will be offered an appointment at a hub only if the GP believes that:

  • you are in urgent need of a face-to-face GP appointment (and the issue cannot be resolved by a telephone, video or e-consultation), and
  • you have possible symptoms of coronavirus, or
  • you are self-isolating in a household

You will not receive a test for Coronavirus (COVID-19) at these hubs.

Please note that these hubs are not walk-in centres.

Appointments can only be made following an assessment by our GP practice first.

If an appointment is booked for you at the hub, you will be advised of what to do to ensure your care can be provided in a way that is safe for you and our staff.
