NEW PATIENTS WELCOME!  We are registering new patients.  If you live out of our catchment area you may still be able to register as an Out of Area Patient if you do not expect to need home visits.  Out of Area patients need to call 111 to arrange visits as they are not provided by the practice. 

MAGAZINES -  REALLY SHORT OF THESE AGAIN (Aug 19)!!   If you have anything suitable that you are willing to donate please drop them off for us.  Thank you!

OUT OF HOURS - CALL 111 if you need medical advice or assistance anytime the practice is closed. All calls are free to this number.  CALL 999 immediately if the problem may be life threatening at anytime.

PRIVATE WORK - Please note that anything that is not NHS contracted work can take up to four weeks to complete as the doctors must give priority to all NHS work.  This includes some forms that are required for the Council.  Fees are charged where appropriate for private work.   If you do need something done please contact the Patient Services team to find about about the charges.  A GP appointment is NOT needed if you need to have forms or reports done.   Charges can be paid by card over the phone and must be paid before the work is undertaken.

Wasted Appointments!!  OCTOBER 19

It is very unfair to miss appointments, other patients can use any appointment that is cancelled even at short notice so PLEASE PLEASE cancel if you are unable to keep your appointment!

73  GP/NP/AP Appointments were missed = more than 12 hours wasted

(According to Government data 2013 this equates to a waste of £2774 - One 10 minute GP appointment = £38)

41 Nurse/HCA Appointments were missed  =  more than 10 hours wasted

(According to Government data 2013 this equates to a waste of £533  - 1 nurse hour = £52)

Welcome to The Boulevard Medical Practice

"The purpose of The Boulevard Medical Practice is to offer care, support and advice to all patients to enable them to maximise their quality of life."

The doctors and staff at The Boulevard Medical practice Halifax are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centered healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.  New patients who live in our catchment area are more than welcome to join us!   If you live out of our area you may be able to register with us as long as you are happy that you will not be entitled to "home visits" by the practice, you would have to arrange visits by calling 111 if needed.   Those with long term conditions that are likely to require visits will not have this option.

In addition to everything you need to know about the practice you will also find a wealth of health-related information in the menu on the right hand side. Please have a look around and do send us some feedback if you like.

Disabled Access

The practice has access for the disabled with all consulting and treatment rooms on two floors along with a patient lift and disabled toilets.  We also have wheelchairs in the surgery for patients to borrow whilst attending to help them get to / from the car park and around the building. Please ask at reception if you would like to use one.
