Welcome to Balance Street Health Centre.


In the departure of Dr Seddon in November 2018 we are having to change the way we work at Balance Street Practice as there is a National shortage of GPs. We have a small pool of regular locum GPs to ensure continuity as best as possible. Our Reception team will be asking the reason for your call, this is to direct you to the best and most appropriate care. We kindly ask patients to bear with us as this difficult time.


Many Thanks from the Partners & Staff at Balance Street Practice.



Our next Staff Training Day is 12th June 2019. The practice will close from 1:30. Dispensary will be closed from 1:30-4:30.


**NEW** Our practice is involved with a new Living Well program - please check back soon for more information under "clinics & services"

The Living Well Programme

The NHS is developing the concept of social prescribing in order to help patients to improve their health, wellbeing and social welfare by connecting them to community services, which are run by councils or local charities. Here at Balance Street Surgery, we are enthusiastic about this new initiative; indeed, we are ahead of the game!

We recently trialled a FREE 12 week ‘Living Well Programme’ that each week combined a seated exercise class with an informative talk.  Hosted and coordinated by the team at Uttoxeter Cares Centre on Holly Road, each session was attended by up to 12 patients at a time.  It proved to be a big success and was extremely popular for all those who attended the course which finished in December last year.

The seated exercise classes are run by a professional trainer from the Burton Albion Community team. Between the seated exercise and informative talks, refreshments will be provided by Tesco. 

The programme will help you to improve your independence, help you stay as active as possible and offer the opportunity to meet new people, make new friends and share experiences. 

The next FREE course will start on 9th May 2019 and will run 10am until 12noon at the Uttoxeter Cares Centre on Holly Road. 

If you are interested and would like more information or to book a place, please contact reception on 01889 562145, pressing option 1 for reception and ask for Laura.
