  • The Medical Centre


    Due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis, St Bartholomew’s Medical Centre is currently operating in a different way. We are protecting patients and staff by reducing patient/GP face-to-face contact as much as possible. It is important that if you have any concerns, questions or queries that you would normally discuss with your GP, that you contact us. You can begin an online consultation or you can telephone us on 01865 242334. 

    Our GPs are available to talk to you via a telephone or video consultation and if necessary, they will then arrange for you to be seen. Please note you can order repeat prescriptions via email. 

    We thank you for understanding and for your support.
