Burnham Health Centre would like to apologise for any difficulties that you are currently experiencing with contacting the practice by telephone. We are experiencing some teething troubles with our new number and are liasing with our telecomms supplier in an effort to get these problems sorted out.

Burnham Health Centre now offers the Patient Access platform and smartphone app from EMIS which supports online appointment booking and repeat medication management. As a result of this we are intending to move our repeat medication management to Patient Access from 01/05/2014.
If you currently order your repeat medications via this website, and do not yet have a Patient Access account, please sign up for one as the facility to order repeat medications via this website will cease on 30/04/2014.
Full details on how to register for Patient Access are given on the Patient Access page of this website.
Burnham Health Centre Origins
Burnham Health Centre was opened in 1971. The patients came from an amalgamation of three local practices. The original Burnham practice moved to this site from the High Street home of Dr Maxwell Summers.
Burnham Health Centre Today
All the doctors in the practice have at some time, worked in local hospitals before they joined the practice team. The team at Burnham Health Centre comprises of doctors, practice nurses, district nurses, health visitors, midwife and other specialist staff, which include a community podiatrist and physiotherapist. We all work together to offer the best medical services to our 17650 patients. We are also a training practice and usually have between 2 and 3 GP registrars working with us for periods of up to 6 months whilst they train to become doctors in their own right.
Planned development will ensure that Burnham Health Centre is equipped to deal with the increasing demand to provide quality care to our patients. In partnership with Burnham Health Promotion Trust, the practice will embrace the broader view of "health" by providing facilities as a drop in clinics, Citizens Advice Bureau, Youth Counselling, Diabetic Education and various carers groups. We also provide support to those people of all ages and genders, who are subject to domestic violence.
We will always seek to be at the forefront of primary care and also to provide services in the locality. We currently have Ophthalmology clinics, and also adult and young persons Mental Health clinics at the practice.
Please note when updating your Clinical Record we can not accept change of address via this route.
You will have to visit the practice with proof of your new address and we will update your records.
