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.

When We Are Closed

If you need medical attention during these periods ring out of hours on 111.

The emergency number is available from 18:30 to 08:00 Monday to Thursday and from 18:30 on Friday continuously through the weekend until 08:00 on Monday morning (excluding bank holidays & statutory holidays).
