Please update the practice if you have changed address or telephone number - it is vital that we have correct contact details.  Please select the Online Services from our Quick Links menu on the right. You must live within our practice area to remain registered with us - look at the practice area map in the New Patients tab to check where you live.

Car Park

The University has introduced Pay & Display around our car park at the back of the surgery. Patients attending the surgery for 90 minutes or less can park without charge in the car park area closest to the surgery.

Named Doctor

All patients have a named doctor and you will be informed who that is when you register for the first time. However we have an "open list policy" which means you are welcome to see whichever doctor you choose but we would strongly advise trying to see a consistent doctor, especially for long term health conditions. Please see here for more information.

We have had our Care Quality Commission visit - see their  report on our services.

Test Resultstest_results8

When you attend for a test of any kind you will be told how long you should expect to wait for the results. Please bear this in mind and note that it is very important THAT YOU CONTACT US TO GET YOUR RESULT by phoning

0121 687 3055 (auto attendent option 3) between 14:30 and 16:30  

once sufficient time has elapsed: this is usually 3 days for the vast majority of tests. Histology results after minor surgery, testosterone, x-rays and vitamin D tests take longer with histology taking up to a month for us to receive your results. 

Our reception staff are not qualified to comment on results but will relay instructions left by the viewing doctor and ask you either to speak to a nurse or make any necessary follow-up appointment with the doctor who requested the test.

Please note that we do have a strict policy regarding confidentiality and data protection. In this respect we will only give out results to the person they relate to unless that person has given prior permission for their release or if they are not capable of understanding them.
