Our Practice provides comprehensive and high quality medical care with the emphasis on personal service in an informal, friendly and respectful environment. Our Practice Philosophy is to strive for excellence in the delivery of services to our patients without discrimination; to enhance the role of primary care by developing the skills of our team; to promote a healthy lifestyle and to work with the local health community in arranging services close to home.
The Practice has been and still is actively trying to recruit new clinical staff including Doctors but, as you are probably already aware, there is a national shortage of GPs. There will be times for the foreseeable future where we will need to close our branch surgery at Bransgore as we will not have enough GPs to cover both surgeries.
1st July 2016 we changed our Clinical system to TPP SystmOne; this enables us to integrate fully with our local health provider colleagues. For more information Click Here TPP SystmOne Patient Information Leaflet
Please also see the data sharing page (bottom right of this screen No 17). Rather than your clinician asking you questions, taking up important consultation time, opt out forms are available from Reception or please click here Data Sharing Opt Out form. If you decide to opt out of any data sharing please complete your form and return to Reception. Thank you
The Practice Today
You are welcome to attend either Burton or Bransgore Medical Centre, whichever is most convenient to you - they are linked by computer and telephone. All the Practice doctors will be pleased to see you, however if you wish to see a particular doctor, please let the receptionist know when making an appointment. Wheelchair access is available at both centres.
The practice looks after over 9,000 patients and endeavours to provide an equitable service for all. Anyone involved with your care will give you their names and ensure that you know how to contact them.
Each patient has a named GP who is responsible for their overall care at the Practice. You may contact the Practice to ask who this is and if you have a preference as to who this is we would try to accommodate this. It is important to understand that ALL GPs have access to your medical records and this named GP need not be the clinician you to see.
All patients over the age of 75 may request a Health Check.
You may download and print a Practice Booklet here: Practice Leaflet
