Named GP

All patients registered at Barrack Lane Medical Centre hold a practice wide registration. This means you can elect to be seen at either Barrack Lane or Stoke Park site. Every patient is allocated a named GP, but this does not prevent you from seeing the clinician of your choice if they have availability. If you would like more details please contact us or ask at reception.

When you need to be seen...   

We will offer you a same day appointment with a member of our On the Day Team. Appointments can be arranged by calling the surgery direct or can be booked on line. Our On the Day team are supported by a designated Duty Doctor who is available for urgent problems.

To save a time consuming trip to the surgery...

Our clinicians are available each day for telephone consultations and to provide advice.

When you need a follow-up appointment or are asked to come back...

Our reception staff will organise a telephone assessment for you, with a clinician of your choice, who will call you back to discuss your needs and arrange a face to face appointment if you agree that one is needed. 

Keep or Cancel

Patients who do not attend for their appointments cost the National Health Service many millions of pounds each year.

If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.

You can also text us to cancel your appointment on:

07757 006431  Barrack Lane 

07757 006363 Stoke Park

By giving us as much notice as you can you are helping us to make sure that someone else is given your slot.

Arriving late for your appointment
It really helps us if you arrive on time for your appointment, as you will not be able to use the automatic check-in system and it will result in delays for other patients. We apologise if you arrive on time, but find that we are running late! This is usually because certain patients have needed extra time and not because we arrived late!
