The Surgery will be closed on Monday 25th May 2020 and will re open on Tuesday 26th May 2020. For urgent matters that cannot wait until the surgery re opens please ring 111 for medical emergencies ring 999.
The surgery has taken precautionary steps to remove on line booking of appointments in view of the recent Coronavirus outbreak. When booking an appointment patients will be asked a series of screening questions to reduce the spread of the virus.
We are a friendly practice based near the centre of Barnsley with a current list size of approximately 11200 patients. We have a reliable team of staff who are available to process repeat prescriptions, book appointments, answer general enquiries and liaise with the doctors on behalf of our patients.
Dr C A Bridger, Dr S Chikthimmah, Dr R Hariharan and Dr W Han are a general Partnership.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
BURLEIGH MEDICAL CENTRE would like to invite you to join DoctorLink.
We have been looking at how we can improve access to Practice services; DoctorLink is our new online service where you can access advice and appointments on line.
Registration is simple and you can register here:
For all urgent appointments, we ask that you undertake a symptom assessment through DoctorLink.
The symptom checker will ask you a number of questions to help to identify your problem.
The outcome of your assessment will direct you to the right treatment, whether emergency care, your GP, nurse or self care.
If your outcome indicates that an appointment is required, you simply click on the request appointment link.
Once the request has been submitted, you will then be contacted by the Practice Team, to arrange an appointment within the identified timeframe (as outlined in the outcome of your symptom checker).
The information you provide will be shared with our clinical team (where appropriate) and will assist in providing robust information of your problem to the required clinical team member prior to your appointment.
You can even download the App:
