Primary Care Streaming Service

Across Bradford, we are always looking at various streaming and pathway initiatives to both alleviate A&E use and avoid unnecessary admissions. One of the ways we help to reduce pressure on A&E is the Primary Care Streaming Service that was co-located in the Emergency Department of Bradford Royal Infirmary pre-Covid.

Whilst it has now been moved offsite, the principle still stands that patients who attend A&E who have a minor illness or an issue that can be dealt with by a GP will be offered an appointment with a GP.

The service runs until midnight 7 days per week, with admin support in the emergency department to ensure the patients are given a telephone consultation slot.
