Update (12:50, 29 March 2023): IT issues have now been resolved. Thank you for your patience.
Update (09:05, 29 March 2023): a small number of GP practices are still experiencing issues this morning.
An issue with national network providers has had an impact on IT systems that service local GP practices across Bradford District and Craven.
As a result patients have found, and may continue to find, it difficult to contact their GP practice over the telephone and online through practice websites.
If anyone has any issues contacting their GP and needs medical help right now, please contact 111 online or over the phone and let them know you’re unable to reach your practice. People should continue to attend planned appointments.
We expect this to be resolved in the next 24 hours but we’ll keep you updated.
There have been reports of verbal abuse towards GP staff, this issue is out of their control and we believe that no member of staff should have to work in fear. Thank you for treating staff with respect.
