Temporary changes to the Practice – from Monday 6 April 2020 


As you are aware the NHS is currently dealing with the Coronovirus pandemic and in order to help us to help you, the practice needs to make some temporary changes to continue to provide healthcare and advice when you and your family need it most.


From Monday 6 April, you will NOT be able to walk into this practice any longer.


Should you need to speak to your practice, you will need to call the practice 0121 554 1812


If you have a medical problem you will be assessed by a GP/Practice Nurse over the telephone.


If they decide you need to be examined they will make a face to face appointment for you.


The NHS is limiting Face-to-Face consultations due to Covid-19.
