Welcome to The Barcellos Family Practice

Our Practice provides comprehensive NHS primary care services to help you manage your health and well-being. 

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 or visit our New Patient Registration web page for further details>>

Our website has a new look!

This website has recently been redesigned with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think.

 We provide a full range of NHS care services many of which can be accessed from the website. We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format.

We are continuing our work to ensure that the website content and layout provides the information, advice, and access to the relevant services that our patients need.
