Welcome To The Practice

VISION – A Modern Practice responding to local needs demonstrating excellence with a Caring Patient Centred Healthcare approach

MISSION: To work together as a Patient Centred Professional and Effective Team.

The Burnham & Berrow Medical Centre website contains a vast range of health information and resources, along with practical information on visiting the surgery. We hope you find the website useful and informative.

Patients registered with Dr Michael Thomson and Dr Hilary Allen

Following Dr Thomson’s retirement in December, we are continuing in our search for his replacement.

In the meantime, Dr Thomson’s patient list will be reallocated throughout the Burnham & Berrow Medical Centre GP’s.

We are pleased to announce that following Dr Allen’s semi-retirement at the end of March, Dr Fiona Gardner will be joining the Practice as a Salaried GP from 28/4/14. Dr Allen’s patients will be transferred to Dr Gardner’s patient list.

As Dr Allen will be continuing her work as a locum doctor, she may occasionally be seen at Burnham & Berrow Medical Centre in the future.
