The history of the Barton Lane Practice originates in 1892, with the move by Dr. Austin Nathaniel Cooper into the building at 454 Peel Street Tamworth, on the eastern corner of White Street.

From this time, a number of doctors continued in the practice from the same building, known locally at first as “454” then as the “Big Five” (during the 1950s), and then the “Big Six” (this was a reference to the number of doctors).

The practice then moved into purpose-built premises at 131 Marius Street in 1985, thus becoming the Marius Street Medical Centre.

In 1998, the doctors moved from the Marius Street building to a medical center, built at the corner of Johnston Street and Barton Lane, renaming the surgery, Barton Lane Practice.

Dr Bedville was my Dr from the time I was about four until he stopped practising. He delivered my four children he was a great Dr and a wonderful person. Greatly missed.

I made a sports report team I the 80s and had to get a med certificate. I made an appointment to see Dr Richardson. He looked at me said you are fit, anything wrong, signed it and said what a joke. See you next time. Loved his manner. Great man.

We started with Dr Wade King at the Practice in White St who was fantastic & Dr Holford did an emergency delivery of our first child. We have been with Dr Rutherford ever since he joined the Practice when Dr Wade King left. So many of us & our families have such long histories with this practice which is a testament to the kind caring treatment we always received in the past.

Now those were the days of the family practice, cradle to grave care, the iconic surgery long gone along with the Tamworth Club.

My Mother worked there with Drs Douglas, Morris and Piper in the 1930's. She told me many stories about her time working with them.

Dr Richardson delivered our two girls both were premmies no complications great doctor

Dr Richardson was may.famly Doctors he was a lovely man

What an awesome read on the history of the practice and how it’s evolved!

Great Photos of all the Doctors

Doctor Breville was my dr he was the most gentle man

I remember Dr Fitzpatrick was on the other corner

My first visit to Dr Stephen Howle, was at the Corner White & Peel St... Still going to Barton Lane Practice! Really miss Dr Howle.

Some good photos there. I started seeing Dr Howel in the white street practice

Stephen Richardson delivered both of ours, lovely and amazing Doctor, my eldest just turned 50 and I still attend this practice. 🥰👍

Our family Doctor was Dr Hammond. In fact he delivered me. I still remember the smell of methylated spirits as I was walked sown the hallway to the back where the nurse in the starched uniform would use my bum as a dartboard. Geez those needles hurt.

It was great to read through the item on the Drs practice's in Tamworth, very interesting and informative.

I started with the practice in 1970, things have changed since then.

Dr.Bedville delivered my first in the 69’s & I also worked for the big 7 in Marius st in the 80’s

Dr Hammond was my Doc. delivered our 2 boys.I Have been with the practice from White St. Marius St and Barton Lane.

My parents went to Dr Hammond prior to that we went to Dr Dance in Marius st many years ago.

Dr Richardson was the best. Pity there wasn’t a photo of Sister Blair.

I liked doctor Hammond and doctor Dance

Such a beautiful Doctor was dr Hammond delivered 3 of my boys in the 70s

Dr Richardson delivered may.3 Children

Any record anywhere of a Dr Henry James Anelzark, the Grandfather of a friend, she is trying to trace for the family tree, and he often spoke of his time in Tamworth (as A Doctor) but she was too young in those days to take notes. I suspect that he would be in his early hundreds if still with us.
