Welcome to Burnham Health Centre
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 our 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 18000 patients. We are also a training practice and usually have between 2 and 3 GP registrars working with us for periods of up to 12 months whilst they train to become GP 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 Diabetic retinothopy clinics, physiotherapy and also adult and young persons Mental Health clinics at the practice.
