We are now taking bookings for our flu clinic which is being held on Saturday 23rd September.

Thank you to our patients who completed the national patient survey for Brannam Medical Centre. We have now received the results and would like to share these with you. Please click here to view the results.


We use a messaging system called MJOG which allows us to contact our patients by text and voice message. We have been using this to invite our patients in for their seasonal flu vaccinations, chronic disease recalls and also for appointment reminders.

We would like to make our patients aware that if you receive a voice message starting 'This is a message from Brannam Medical Centre' it is a genuine message from us and please listen to the message all the way through and you will be able to respond.

If you do not wish to receive messages in this way, please contact the reception team.

GP Appointments 

You can book routine appointments with your doctor in three ways: online, over the phone or at reception.

  • Online - you can view, book and cancel routine appointments online. It is a simple and easy system to use, and especially useful during those times when the telephone lines are busy or the practice is closed. If you wish to sign up for this service please visit the surgery and ask for your online appointments login details. 
  • Telephone - our doctors operate personal lists to ensure continuity and consistency of care, and each list is supported by a personal receptionist.  You can make an appointment by calling your doctor's receptionist or the general enquiries line (01271) 329004
