Barton Lane Practice seeks to improve the health and wellbeing of individuals, families and communities, and we have been doing so since 1892.

In response to COVID-19 we have made a range of changes to help care for you and our community at this time. Many appointments are now available by phone or video consultation. This helps keep you safe at home and helps us make sure that it is as safe as possible for people who need to see us face to face. You can also book phone and video appointments online. You can find out more about some of our changes below.

We’ve spread some things out to give you more space

We have …

  • removed some chairs and spaced them further apart
  • spread out our appointments times
  • set up options for phone and video appointments

… so that when you visit us we can keep you as safe as possible

Updates on Telehealth

Phone and Video appointments are a great tool to help you get the care you need without coming into the practice. This helps us make sure the waiting room is as safe as possible for those who need something cared for face to face.

When you book a video appointment you will be sent an email close to your appointment with instructions on how to connect. 

Do you have cold or flu symptoms?

Given the risk of COVID-19 to our community, we will be seeing everyone who has cold or flu symptoms with a video or phone appointment. Most of the time we will be able to care for you and organise any medications, tests or certificates you need without you needing to come into the practice.

So, if you have a fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath or other flu like symptoms, book a phone or video appointment with one of our doctors today.

To keep up to date, you can sign up for emails

🚶‍♂️🚶‍♀️ Walking Wins in Tamworth! 💓

Yesterday, our community came together for the Heart Week Walk, a fantastic event organised by the Heart Foundation’s Tamworth Trekkers and the Tamworth Cardiovascular Working Group. It was a wonderful opportunity to enjoy a leisurely stroll through Bicentennial Park while raising awareness about heart health.

Heart Week is all about educating and empowering individuals to take positive steps towards heart health. This year's focus was on the benefits of walking with the launch of the Walking Wins campaign. Our very own Dr Daniel Rankmore shared insights into the importance of staying active to prevent heart disease. He emphasised that many people are unaware of their risk factors for heart disease, urging everyone to pay attention to silent risk factors like high blood pressure and cholesterol.

“It is vital for the community to take time to focus their attention on the prevention and management of chronic conditions such as heart disease.”

“Walking can significantly reduce the risk of heart disease. It’s an ideal form of physical activity because it’s free, accessible, and can be done almost anywhere. Achieving 30 minutes of walking each day can significantly lower your risk of heart disease and support overall well-being.”

With only 1 in 5 adults meeting recommended activity levels, walking just 30 minutes a day can significantly lower heart disease risks, stroke by 35% and Type 2 diabetes by 40%. Richard Nankervis, CEO of the Hunter New England Central Coast Primary Health Network, stressed the impact of walking in reducing cardiovascular disease.

The Tamworth Trekkers Walking Group, led by Robyn Barton, continues to promote heart health with regular walks and social events. If you're keen to join them for their next walk, a friendly chat, and blood pressure check, feel free to reach out to Robyn for more information: walking.heartfoundation.org.au/walking/group/tamworth-trekkers 🏃‍♂️👟

New Patients

At present Barton Lane Practice is experiencing an increased demand for appointments. As such, we do not currently have any GPs who are able to take on new patients at this time. We will continue to review our availability and hope to be able to take on new patients again soon. 

    Billing Information

    Our goal is to provide you with high quality, comprehensive health care. As such we do not bulk bill as we cannot maintain our standard of medical care on the rebate available.
    However, we do provide medical care for concession card holders at a discounted rate.
    We also seek to provide care in innovative ways for people with a range of complex and chronic health care conditions. We are able to run many specific services for a range of common chronic health issues with little or no out of pocket cost to you. If you have a chronic health care need please talk to one of our doctors or other staff to learn more about what this could mean for you.
    The current fee scale is displayed at reception. Please ask our receptionists for further details. We ask that fees be settled in full at the time of consultation.
