Welcome to Barrington Medical Centre
Barrington Medical Centre in Altrincham is a long-established medical practice comprising of four family doctors, both male and female, working within a partnership along with the support of a salaried GP and a team of nurses - we take pride in offering our patients the very highest standards 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, diabetes checks, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
Our website contains all the information that you might need about the practice and how to access and use our services. There is also a wealth of general health-related information.
'News and Information'
Book your flu jab now !
Are you aged 65 and over, under 65 but suffer from a chronic condition, a carer or pregnant ? If so then you are recommended to have the seasonal flu jab.
Our annual flu vaccination clinics have now finished so please contact our reception team to enquire about the availability of vaccination now to provide you with important protection this winter.
Children aged between 2 and 4 years old have also been invited to receive protection from flu via nasal spray vaccination. If you have received a letter of invitation but not yet made your appointment please contact our reception team.
Urgent Medical Care - when the surgery is open or closed
This was the theme of our practice survey in 2013. We have worked with our Patient Participation Group to consider the actions we might take as a result of the survey - a copy of the full report is available by clicking the tab on the right hand side or in our waiting room at the practice.
As a result of the survey we have produced a new patient information leaflet which explains urgent medical care services available - that is also available on this website via the appointments tab, or as a paper leaflet in our main waiting room.
Thank you to all our patients who participated in this year's survey and to our Patient Participation Group for giving consideration to the results, the report that we produced and the actions that we have taken.

*APPOINTMENTS : Huge numbers of GP and Practice Nurse appointments are wasted each year simply because they are missed. We always experience a high demand for appointments and when a patient does not attend this is a wasted opportunity for another patient to receive the medical care that they need. You can help by making sure that you either keep or cancel your appointment - the earlier that you cancel the better, but it's never too late to cancel.
*Persistent non-attendance of arranged appointments is not considered acceptable at this practice and may impact on whether you are able to obtain medical care through us
