We are a small practice of family doctors working within Canalside Healthcare Centre in Bingley. We provide a full range of Primary Care Medical Services. Despite our small friendly atmosphere, we manage to offer a range of extended services which are often available only at larger practices. We teach Medical Students, and doctors on the GP Training Programme. We try to provide a personal service, whilst maintaining high standards of care.
Springfield Surgery's list is OPEN to new patients in the Bingley area - see new patients page
Like the rest of the NHS, Springfield has seen huge additional demand on our services year-on-year. We are offering more appointments and seeing more and more patients. We have to try to manage this demand with diminishing resources.
We are well aware that at times it's not easy to get an appointment (especially around holiday times such as Bank Holidays), and apologise for this. On busy days we may have to prioritise urgent requests for appointments, and therefore reception staff may ask brief clinical details to enable us to do this effectively. This will always be dealt with in a highly confidential manner, and we appreciate your understanding.

We all get coughs and colds and sore throats. Especially children. The infections spread easily when they go to nursery or school and mix with other children. Coughs and colds are caused by viruses, and antibiotics do not work against viruses.
Even where there is a bacterial infection, antibiotic medicines usually do little to speed up recovery of bronchitis, or most ear, nose, and throat infections.
Your doctor should only prescribe antibiotics when you need them - for example, if you have a kidney infection or pneumonia. They can be life-saving for infections such as meningitis. By using them only when necessary, antibiotics are more likely to work when you really need them.
"Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats facing us today".
See the http://antibioticguardian.com/ website for more details on how we can all work together to face this threat.
Bradford District Clinical Commisioning Group has launched 'Pharmacy First' to provide our patients with rapid access to a pharmacist who can give self care advice on a range of minor ailments.
Patients must be able to attend the pharmacy in person and those under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. All local pharmacies are offering this service.

Our phone lines open in the morning at 8am, so if you have a non-urgent problem but want to be seen the same day, please ring early! Any urgent problems will always be dealt with the same day. One third of our appointments are bookable in advance, so if you'd prefer a more convenient appointment over the coming days or weeks, please ask.
We try very hard to answer telephone calls quickly. Phone lines are particularly busy first thing in the morning, as this is when many of our patients ring us to get a "book on the day" appointment. We have increased our staffing and incoming lines to try and ease phone congestion. If your call is for something other than to book an appointment eg. for test results, it may be best to try later in the day (after 10am).
If you use our on-line system to order prescriptions or make appointments, you can now download it as an App for your iPhone or iPad. Just search for "Systmonline" within the App Store. It's free to download and gives you the same access as the web page. If you haven't already registered for this service, please speak to reception to obtain a secure password.
You can see a physiotherapist without having to see a GP first.

We are now offering a free texting service. This service will send you confirmation of your appointments, and reminders shortly before your appointment is due. You may also receive results of blood tests via text message.
If you would like to receive texts from us, please make sure we have your up to date mobile number.
If you would prefer not to receive texts from us, please let reception know.
We often experiencing a problem with patients booking appointments and then not attending, without letting us know. On average, this is happening over 20 times a week. This means nearly a whole days worth of doctor appointments are wasted each week. Clearly this is a drain on valuable time and resources, but more importantly, makes it harder for those who need/want to be seen to get an appointment.
If you book an appointment, and then can no longer make it or you change your mind about needing to be seen , PLEASE LET US KNOW. We can then free up your slot for someone else.
