Important Update : We are upgrading to the next phase of the Electronic Prescription Service (EPS) from 20th May 2020 (next Wednesday).


BHWC was one of the first NHS surgeries to integrate with complementary health services, including narrative medicine and the healing arts. We have learned many lessons along the way and made mistakes, as well as had successes with what seems to work well and what doesn't.

Part of our original vision was to see Health Centres like ours in every town in the UK. We know there are like-minded people around the country who would like to offer integrated health services, either fully or in part.

If you are in a GP partnership looking to branch out in a similar direction to us, integrating with complementary health options, or an existing complementary Health Centre wondering how you can integrate more with the NHS, we would like to offer our experience and knowledge to support you.
