Welcome to the Barrow Health Centre Website
The Health Centre Surgery is centrally placed in the village of Barrow upon Soar. It has a large car park and is on the local bus route. A pharmacy is also located nearby.
The doctors and nurses here take pride in offering the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
The Health Centre is fully accessible to people in wheelchairs and other disabled.
Medication reviews are very important for patient safety. For reviews that are long overdue this medication will be removed from the patients repeat slip. Patients will NOT be refused the medication but they will have to contact the surgery to get it put back on repeat, and this may mean depending on the type of medication that they will need to be seen by a clinician. If you are long overdue for a review contact reception who will organise this for you.
Your Named Registered Accountable GP
In Accordance with the current government and our NHS Contract, all patients on our list have been allocated a named accountable GP. This GP is responsible for the co-ordination of all appropriate services that relate to your care. You are unlikely to see any notable change in the way care is delivered to you by our practice, this process is simply a formalisation of our current process. You are however, able to book an appointment with any of the GPs in the practice.
If you do not know who your GP is, please ask at your next visit.
Remember our nurses are trained to deal with minor illnesses and can prescribe medication to deal with this. They are highly trained Urgent Care Nurses who are experienced in their field. If your condition is more than the nurse can manage she will pass you on to a GP that same day if necessary. The receptionists are trained to signpost patients to the best clinician to deal with your complaint.
The CQC recently inspected the practice. To see the full report please go to:-
