New Car Parking Details

As you know we have had difficulties over the last year with car parking at Durnford Medical Centre. To alliviate these issues we have installed a FREE Car Parking operation.  When attending an appointment at the Medical Centre you will be asked to submit your Car Registration NUmber into the new system, this is the permit required for you to park.  This should stop any confusion over parking within the Boars Head car park.

Welcome to Durnford Medical Centre

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.

Face Masks

Durnford Medical Centre Doctors will not give letters to patients trying to avoid wearing masks in public places. This is in-line with advice from the LMC applicable across Bury and HMR as per the attached Newsletter

In line with Governmental and NHS guidance everyone over the age of five years MUST wear a face mask while attending Durnford Medical Centre for whatever reason.

Patients must be alone (unless vulnerable or a child, in which case with just one responsible person), only enter the building after being given an appointment, and wear a face mask at all times.

Failure to do so will result in denial of admission or being asked to leave the building.

Events in Afghanistan

We are conscious that some patients registered at Durnford Medical Centre may be affected by current events in Afghanistan.  Durnford Medical Centre is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners as one which specialises in the care of military veterans and their families. All the team have been trained in the care of military veterans and their families. If recent events have affected you and you wish to seek help, please come forward.
