Welcome to Dr Babar & Partners
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.
Get Well, Keep Well
Of course we’re not just here for when you are unwell. Our team of healthcare professionals and back-up staff offer a number of clinics and services to promote good health and wellbeing whatever your medical condition.
CORONAVIRUS – UPDATE TO PRACTICE APPOINTMENTS
Due to increased concern regarding Coronavirus, we will be amending all GP appointments to telephone or video calls, WITH IMMEDIATE EFFECT.
If you already have an appointment booked please DO NOT ATTEND THE SURGERY. A clinician will contact you by telephone as close to the time of your booked appointment as possible and will advise you as to the best course of action for your clinical query.
Patients will only be seen if the GP feels a physical examination is a necessity.
Practice Nurse Appointments:
If you have an appointment booked with the Practice Nurse you will be contacted by our reception team to discuss attendance. The nurses will continue to provide a significantly reduced service for those procedures deemed absolutely necessary until further notice. As such your appointment may need to be rescheduled. Routine nursing reviews of chronic illnesses (Asthma, COPD, Diabetes) will be cancelled until further notice.
These measures are being taken to reduce the infection risk to our patients and our staff. If you are told to come in for an examination or procedure by the triaging clinician, but develop symptoms consistent with coronavirus (fever, new cough, shortness of breath) please DO NOT ATTEND your appointment but ring reception for further advice. All accompanying persons should wait in their personal car if possible.
These can be ordered via our telephone number or online as currently happens, but we would request that patients inform us of their preferred or designated pharmacy so that prescriptions can be forwarded directly there for collection rather than for pickup at the surgery. Alternatively you can ask your pharmacist regarding the CMS system if you are on long-term stable medications.
Medical Certificates and Letter Requests:
We are encouraging email of medical certificates rather than collection from the surgery.
Online Appointment Booking:
Due to Coronavirus risks we have suspended all online bookings. The online system does not triage patients, which is an important part of risk assessment. Please call the surgery to discuss your clinical query. Online repeat prescriptions are not affected.

It Is Surgery Policy That Patients Can No Longer Allow Pharmacies To Order On Their Behalf.
