Do you think you might have Covid19?.... get advice now
welcome to Bingley Medical Practice
We're still here and ready to help!
The best way to contact us is to use eConsult: you can do this any day and anytime. You'll find instant help and advice, and we will reply usually within a few hours, and always before the end of the next working day.
We may give you a ring to find out more about your problem and make a plan. We may also ask you to send us some photos to help us make a diagnosis. And sometimes we will ask you to come to the Practice for an examination or test.
If you have been asked to come to the Practice, we will usually ask you to wait in your car, and then phone you when we're ready for you. We may ask you to ring us when you're in the car park.
Please don't come to the building unless you have been asked to. If you have been asked to come, please wear a mask or face covering if you have one. Thank you.
Facemasks are an important part of the fight against Coronavirus, and we encourage people to wear them.
Some people may be anxious about the Government’s recent announcements around the use of face masks in various public settings. Some situations where not wearing a mask is reasonable are listed on the Government’s website.
Please be aware that no letter is required to exempt you from wearing a face mask, and GPs are not in a position to provide individual risk assessments or letters of this nature.

testing for Coronavirus
Please be aware that we still do not have any access to testing for Covid19 (including antibody testing), contrary to recent press releases from Government.
We are told that we will soon be able to offer antibody testing to those who are having a blood test for other medical reasons, but this is not yet available in our area.
