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.


It is important that we all do our bit to support the NHS locally as it continues to see and treat you, your family and friends.




Temporary Registration

If you are ill while away from home or if you are not registered with a doctor but need to see one you can receive emergency treatment from the local GP practice for 14 days. After 14 days you will need to register as a temporary or permanent patient.

You can be registered as a temporary patient for up to three months. This will allow you to be on the local practice list and still remain a patient of your permanent GP. After three months you will have to re-register as a temporary patient or permanently register with that practice.

To register as a temporary patient simply contact the local practice you wish to use. Practices do not have to accept you as a temporary patient although they do have an obligation to offer emergency treatment. You cannot register as a temporary patient at a practice in the town or area where you are already registered.
