We have been made aware of some inaccurate information circulating regarding special ‘rescue packs’ for patients with pre-existing respiratory conditions such as asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD).


Please do not contact your GP practice for a rescue pack. You should continue to manage your condition in the usual way and if you feel you have symptoms of COVID-19, go to https://111.nhs.uk/covid-19 before doing anything else.


Please read this helpful information from the British Lung Foundation

You will note that there is no recommendation to have a rescue pack as there is no evidence for their use and indeed their are concerns steroid will reduce your immunity to fight off this virus.

Hospital Referrals

Choose and Book

stethescope_4Here at The Boulevard Medical practice we operate an electronic appointment booking system for hospital appointments called “Choose and Book”. Most, but NOT all appointments may be booked in this way.

This means, if you need to be referred to hospital for any reason, YOU are able to:

  • CHOOSE which hospital you wish to be seen at within the immediate are (Calderdale/Huddersfield/ Bradford/Dewsbury etc) -some areas may have slightly shorter waiting times than others.
  • BOOK an appointment over the telephone for a time and date that are convenient to you.

You will be given an information sheet with TWO IDENTIFIERS – a BOOKING NUMBER and a PASSWORD both unique to you. This information will be needed when you telephone the outpatients appointments telephone number to book an appointment. We shall highlight these important identifiers for you.

This system will help you arrange an appointment time to suit YOU best and you will have the reassurance of a definite booking much sooner.

Should you have any difficulties when trying to make trying to make a hospital appointment do not hesitate to contact the surgery and the staff here will be happy to help you.

If you have private medical insurance and wish to be referred privately, please ensure the GP is aware of this.
