Clinics and Services

Family Planning

We provide a wide range of contraceptive services and advice. Please discuss this with your GP.

Smoking Cessation

For advice and support on stopping smoking via the Health Trainer, please arrange an appointment.

If you have been asked by a doctor, please complete our Smoking Review form.

Minor Surgery

Minor operations, for non-cosmetic reasons, are undertaken by Dr Meardon and Dr Hughes. Ask your doctor for advice.

Psychological Services

Referrals to this service can be made via your doctor or the practice nurse.

Community Nurses

Our community nursing team is responsible for providing skilled home nursing care and support typically for patients who are housebound. Please discuss a referral to this team with your doctor.

Care Co-ordinator

We now have a care coordinator working with the practice. She can help you access additional support and services to help you manage your own condition in your own home. Speak to your doctor for further information.

Patient Participation Group

To ensure we obtain input from the users of our services we work with other GP practices across the area to run a Patient Participation Group which is called plain talking.

This group is a “virtual” group and we correspond via telephone, email or letter so there are no meetings to attend, we just ask for assistance in completing surveys and asking for input and feedback to help us identify changes we should be making.
If you are interested in finding out more please ask a receptionist for a PPG information sheet.

Transforming the care of the Elderly

We, in conjunction with St Melor Surgery, run the St Melcroft Coffee Club.

This is held at the George Hotel in Amesbury from 10:00 – 12:00 noon every Tuesday.

Our Elderly Care Facilitator, Jo Ball, organises a variety of activities for those aged 75 years and over, including Tai Chi, seated Zumba, pottery painting and guest speakers to name but a few.

We invite all those attending the coffee club to have a comprehensive medical review with our practice nurse, and if necessary an appointment with a GP.

In addition we do have a physiotherapist working with us to assist those referred by the GP with mobility and joint problems.

If you are aged 75 or over and feel that some support and companionship would be of benefit please telephone the surgery and ask to speak to Jo Ball.

Carers

Jo Ball is the Carers Lead within the Barcroft Medical Practice. The Carers Lead holds the carers register, which is updated monthly. Carers are identified at the point of registration, by reception staff, nurses and GP’s.

Once identified they will need to complete a carers identification form which then generates a referral to Spurgeons.

In addition to the support Carer Support Wiltshire offers, Barcroft Medical Practice also organises regular carers clinics and coffee mornings at the George Hotel, which are open to all carers.

The Barcroft Medical Practice was awarded a Platinum Award at the Carers GP Accreditation Awards for the third year running in 2020.
