Covid Boosters Update (Oct 2021)

The Practice is receiving a number of queries in regards to the Covid Booster. Patients will be contacted directly by a local HUB Covid Centre to arrange your appointment.


Telephone & Face to Face Appointments

The way in which we operate at the Practice has changed. In the first instance we are providing a Telephone Triage service for patients. If the clinician feels there is a clinical need to be seen, they will make arrangements for you to be seen safely in a face to face appointment at the Practice.

Appointments with the Practice Nurse or Health Care Assistant can be booked in the usual way by contacting reception. Thank You.

An award winning medical practice serving Bingley, Gilstead and Eldwick, West Yorkshire

About Us

We are a small, award winning, general practice serving the people of Bingley, Gilstead, Eldwick and the surrounding areas for over 30 years. We are based in Bingley, and our aim is to provide an efficient, high-quality service in a friendly atmosphere.  We provide the latest in terms of modern medical care, yet maintain a personal touch for our patients. We specialise in palliative care and elderly care, but we provide all the general care services expected of a surgery and more. Our immediate practice area is Bingley, Gilstead, Eldwick, Crossflatts, East and West Morton, Cottingley, Nab Wood, Sandbeds and Riddlesden. We also train medical students from Leeds University and other future general practitioners. Our doctors take pride in directing the next generation of health care providers. 

The practice is 'working to become a dementia friendly' health care provider. To visit our action plan please go to: Dementia Action Alliance.

Patients, family and carers can access supportive information about Dementia by visiting: Alzheimer's Society.

The Memory Clinic runs at the Practice on a weekly basis for patients who live in the surrounding areas of Bingley. These sessions and appointments are organised via the Single Point of Access via Meridian House, Bradford District Care Trust.

Our Approach

We like to make things personal. All patients are designated a named general practitioner. The accountable doctor's role is to take overall responsibility for the care and support the surgery provides to the patient. If you are unsure of your named GP please ask a member of our reception team when you next attend the surgery. We are flexible in our surgery times to fit patient schedules where possible, and we do home visits as well, especially when providing elderly and palliative care.

general practitioner in training talking to patient at Oak Glen Surgery Gilstead 

GP Training Practice


The Practice has been accredited by the Yorkshire Deanery (University of Leeds Dept of Postgraduate Medical Education) as a training practice for GPs.

This means the practice will have attached to it a qualified doctor in training to specialise in general practice. Each doctor is with us for a period of 6-12 months. 

There may be times when the new doctor may be videoing his/her consultations. This is purely for educational training purposes of the doctor concerned and you will be asked whether you would like the camera switched off. The videos are used according to the Royal College of General Practitioners' guidelines and are destroyed within 12 months.

We are confident that the addition of a trainee GP will enhance your experience at the practice.

We also teach medical students from the University of Leeds Medical School as well as supervise nurse practitioners from the University of Huddersfield.
