Latest News



We are pleased to announce that Dr Alisdair Macnair will be joining East Barnwell Health Centre from 1st August 2019.

All patients are able to see any doctor of their choice, although for continuity of care and to balance the GP’s workload each patient does have a “usual doctor” who they are registered with.

Patients who were previously registered with Dr Jones will automatically be transferred to our New GP, Dr Macnair


As of 1st July 2019 the Health Centre now offers Practice nurse appointments from 7am on a Monday morning only. These appointments have to be pre-booked. All other opening times remain the same.

We also are now offering a limited number of early morning and early evening telephone appointments with a GP on one morning and one evening a week.

Key first aid essentials include: 

  • Painkillers, such as paracetamol or ibuprofen 
  • Antihistamines for allergies/hay fever 
  • Antiseptic cream for bites and stings  
  • Sunscreen at least factor 15  
  • Plasters and bandages
