Barbourne Health Centre Online
Barbourne Health Centre is a long-established partnership of Doctors operating from a new purpose built surgery in Droitwich Road.
The practice covers an area within Worcester city and it is our policy to provide health care as a team, day and night in conjunction with other health care professionals based at the surgery or in the community.
Please get in touch with us if you wish to register to find out whether you fall into our catchment area.
From 9th August 2014 we will be open every Saturday from 8.00am until 4.00pm. (excluding Bank Holiday weekends). There will be a mixture of pre-bookable and book on the day appointments. The pre-bookable appointments are predominantly aimed at patients who find it hard to access a GP apppointment during the week. The Prescribing Clinician appointments are for minor illnesses and ailments, mostly for those who book on the day.
Telephone lines will not be active on Saturdays and there will only be one receptionist in. We will try our best to resolve any queries on the day, but we may have to ask you to contact the surgery the next working day when other members of staff are in.
From August 9th 2014 we will be opening some nights until 8.00pm, this will be on a rota, therefore, it won't be the same nights every week. These will be pre-bookable appointments, which will be predominantly aimed at patients who find it difficult to access a GP during normal working hours. Please contact the surgery to find out which dates are available.
Our electronic prescription service went live on 2nd July 2014. If you have signed up with a pharmacy for this service your prescription will be electronically sent there. If you haven't signed up with a pharmacy and would like to be included in this service, please contact the pharmacy of your choice to arrange this.
