Welcome to Barrington Medical Centre

Barrington Road Medical CentreBarrington 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.

Our new look

We have recently completed a programme of redecoration and refurbishment of some areas of the surgery ;

  • new markings to our car park including a new hatched area in front of main entrance
  • redecorated waiting room, including new seating and flooring
  • redecorated consultation corridor and new flooring
  • redecorated ground floor patient lavatory with new sanitary ware and flooring

We have been aspiring to make these changes for some time and indeed they are changes that many patients have asked us to consider. We are sure that you will enjoy the fresh new surroundings when you next have need to visit us. 


A new computer system


In October we will be upgrading our computer system to ensure that we have IT that is robust and compliant to meet current standards. Our staff will receive training prior to the date that we migrate to the new system and we expect minimal disruption to the care that we provide although you may find us a little slower on the first morning that we switch over.

The online services available through this website, appoint booking and prescription requests will not be available after 6pm on the evening prior to switchover - the exact date will be advertised on this website from September onwards.



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. 


Dr Rebecca Heaney - maternity leave -

We have been delighted to welcome Dr Megan Powell to the practice from the beginning of January as she will be providing regular locum cover, working Tuesday and Thursday each week, as well as an additional surgery on a Friday morning, to look after Dr Heaney's patients whilst she is on maternity leave.

Dr Heaney gave birth to healthy baby girl weighing in at 6lb 14oz on Tuesday 21st January - mother and baby are both well. Congratulations to Rebecca, Dave and Mani for this much wanted addition to their family !

*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
