Dr Julie Barrett who has been a salaried GP at the practice will be sadly leaving us at the end of August 2022. We are sorry to be losing her and would like to thank Julie for all her hard work and care she has given our patients during her time with us.
We are pleased to announce that Dr Claire Carson will be returning to the practice from her sabbatical in Canada on the 1st September 2022. Dr Carson will be working all day Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. We are delighted to have her back in our team.
We are delighted to announce Dr Henry Gemmell will join the partnership at The Barcellos Family Practice from 1st April 2022.

Welcome to The Barcellos Family Practice
Our practice, established in 1983 by Dr Albert Barcellos, offers a personal, friendly service to all of our patients. We aim to treat you as we would our own family. We are welcoming new patients.
We have two health centres — at Corbin Avenue, Tricketts Cross, Ferndown and 54 Glenmoor Road, West Parley. Our patients and services are split evenly across both sites and the management team are based at Corbin Avenue. We take great pride in our tradition of promoting and maintaining good health and wellbeing in the local community, in challenging times.
We ask all patients to use our online facilities for booking appointments and requesting prescriptions where possible. This should enable you to get the appointment that suits you best and also reduces waiting times on the telephones and at the desks. Please ensure you are registered for online access and that we have an up to date email and mobile phone number registered with the surgery (where applicable) – this enables us to remind you of appointment times and contact you if required. We do not share this information with any third parties.
Our practice area includes Ferndown, West Parley, West Moors, Longham, Canford Bottom and Hurn. Please ask at reception for further details.
