Welcome to the Robert Darbishire Practice

Based in Rusholme, Manchester, The Robert Darbishire Practice is a large GP surgery offering NHS primary care services.

The practice was established in 1954 as part of The University of Manchester. In 2011 we became independent, but we still provide the same high quality care and maintain links with the University. We offer our service to all local people, including students.

We're really pleased to tell you that The Robert Darbishire Practice along with The Whitswood Practice and New Bank Health Centre - our sister practices - are the first doctors' surgeries in the country to be awarded The Daisy Mark.  This is in recognition of the excellent care we provide our patients and the way we treat our staff.  You can find out more about this award at
