In addition to the practice’s normal opening hours, and additional surgery opening times as stated above, you can also book an appointment to see a local clinician in the evenings or on Saturday and Sunday at locations across South Worcestershire. GP practices are working together to provide extended access appointments to our patients. This means that your extended access appointment may be with a different GP, nurse or based in a different location or practice than you are used to, and some of these appointments are telephone only. These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the surgery during our opening times – when calling please ask for an extended access appointment and our receptionists will help you to find a convenient appointment.
Medical Students qualify as doctors after 5 years, but they then need a further 3 years training to qualify as general practitioners.
Barbourne Health Centre started to train junior doctors in 2015.
Dr Holmes is a qualified "trainer" who has been involved in training young doctors who have a interest in becoming GPs.
You may during your visit to Barbourne experience a consulation in a joint surgery, where the trainee GP observes the trainer in consultation, or the trainer watches the trainee consulting.
These joint consultations are a very valuable learning tool for trainees, and we are grateful to all of our patients for supporting us all with this.
