 Blackthorn Medical Centre


Blackthorn Trust


Blackthorn Trust is a registered charity closely associated with our medical practice. It sees a limited number of patients who are struggling with serious, complex and long-term conditions. They are referred by their own GP or consultant and monitored by one of our own doctors.


They may be prescribed anthroposophic or homeopathic medication and one of a number of anthroposophic therapies which are available on a one-to-one or group basis. These include biographical counselling, eurythmy therapy, rhythmical massage or art therapy. Therapies are offered at the discretion of the doctor.


Funding the Trust The Trust is partially funded by the NHS, but needs to raise an additional £100,000 p.a. to cover its running costs. This is activated by grants, donations, bequests and fund raising activities. Patients, their families and friends are asked to help on all fronts to help achieve this task.


Blackthorn Medical Centre is owned by the Trust and part of it rented to the Practice. It was built in 1991 as a result of the generosity and hard work of patients, their families and friends, local and national industry, grant making trusts and the National Health Service


Blackthorn Garden is situated behind the Medical Centre and open during weekdays. The Garden is a working community set up for and run with individuals who are recovering from long term illnesses, and finding their way back into life and work again. A plant nursery, café, bakery and craft workshops provide a variety of opportunities to develop new skills in a setting which is both supportive and challenging. The visiting general public is invited to support the project by coming for lunch and buying the bread, plants and craftwork produced by the Garden’s co-workers.
