Welcome to The Birchwood Medical Centre

We aim to offer a friendly, efficient, modern, family doctor service in fully-equipped, well-run practices. Dr David Goodworth, Dr Christopher Cole, Dr Ben Wallace and Dr Helen Platts work in partnership, alongside Dr Laura Carey, Dr Emily Harvey and Dr Stephanie Dalton, who cover both the Creekmoor and Oakdale surgeries.

With patients' needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

Electronic Repeat Dispensing:

Our Practice is collaborating with NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) who is providing NHS numbers for those patients that maybe suitable for electronic repeat dispensing prescriptions. The information is obtained from NHS Prescriptions submitted to the NHSBSA. A member of our clinical team will contact these patients soon to explain the benefits of this service.

We are working to improve access to appointments for our patients, in particular at evenings and weekends.  If you would like to be offered one of these appointments, please ask.  These appointments may be at a different site; for example, Poole General Hospital.
