If you have symptoms of coronavirus, do not go to a GP surgery, pharmacy or hospital. You do not need to contact NHS 111 to tell them you’re staying at home. Read the advice about staying at home
For urgent advice: use the NHS 111 online coronavirus service: www.111.nhs.uk/covid-19 if:
- you feel you cannot cope with your symptoms at home
- your condition gets worse
- your symptoms do not get better after 7 days
Only call 111 if you cannot get help online.
Patients should attend their appointments as usual, unless we contact you direct or you have a cough and/or high temperature.
Due to operational pressures, we may have to reschedule some planned operations to allow staff to focus on those who need urgent care.
Some outpatient appointments may also change from face-to-face appointments to telephone consultations to avoid patients coming into hospital.
If you are affected by these changes we will contact you by phone or text. Unless you hear from us, please attend your appointment. We are taking all necessary steps to try to keep any disruption for patients to an absolute minimum.

Visitors to Bradford Teaching Hospitals under exceptional circumstances and people attending outpatients’ appointments must wear a face mask at all times to protect them and others from coronavirus from Monday, 15 June. The new legislation applies to all our hospitals – BRI, St Luke’s, Westbourne Green and Westwood Park. It is important masks and face coverings are worn safely. For more information, please watch the video (English language and Urdu versions) below.
Our Lead Nurse for Learning Disabilities, Caroline Carass, and Ruth Foster, Bradford District Care Trust’s Learning Disabilities Community Matron have produced this video about the personal protective equipment (PPE) staff wear on our wards.
