Welcome to Dr Gilkar & Partner

With patient’s 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.


Due to the on going coronavirus pandemic our branch surgery Birch Medical Practice is being used for routine and booked appointments for acute and chronic disease clinics and bloods. All calls will continue to be redirected to our main site at Little Horton Lane.

Thank you for your understanding.

Please note: We will be closed on the Thursday the 2nd and Friday the 3rd of June for bank holidays. Please call 111 if you feel you need help over this period.

National Opt Out

National data opt-out deadline extended to March 2022

The deadline for health and care organisations to comply with national data opt-out policy is now 31 March 2022. The deadline has been extended again, to enable health and care organisations to focus their resources on the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Please note that due to our continued covid 19 measures, we are still asking patients NOT to walk into the practice unless they have a booked appointment or are collecting a prescription. Please contact us via telephone or via SystmOnline for any appointment booking or queries.

Please continue to wear masks when entering our practice and do not attend if you have any covid symptoms or concerns that you may be positive.

Thank you for your continued support and patience.

UPDATE: From Thurs 12/03/2020 all requests for appointments will only be taken over the telephone. This is to protect against the spread of coronavirus, therefore all appointments need to be triaged first.

Please see latest guidance and advice regarding the recent coronavirus outbreak using the link below.
