    Due to the poor weather conditions, the NHS in Bradford is advising patients not to come to hospital for non-urgent outpatient appointments or surgery.

    A spokesperson for Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said they are advising such patients not to come to Bradford Royal Infirmary, St Luke’s Hospital or Westwood Park Diagnostic and Treatment Centre.

    It was added that those patients should wait to hear about dates for rearranged appointments and operations.

    The statement said that they will try and see people who do reach hospital for an outpatient appointment as planned.
