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.

Important changes to the way “repeat prescriptions” are ordered from 01/10/2017

Changes to ordering leaflet - 01/10/2017

The changes outlined in the leaflet and below do not affect Vulnerable or House bound Patients.

The way you order a “repeat prescription” (a medication you can receive regularly without having to see your doctor every time you order it),  is about to change.


What is changing?

If medication is ordered on your behalf by your pharmacy, you will now need to order it yourself directly from your GP surgery and your GP will manage the repeat prescription (see 'repeat request' page for more info on this)

In order for a prescription to be put on repeat you will need to see a doctor to authorise this. (Please note this does not apply to the contraceptive pill where a blood pressure check is necessary every 6-12 months by a nurse practitioner.)

The practice is able to send prescriptions electronically to a Nominated Pharmacy of your choice. This speeds up the processing of requests. Please note that only 1 pharmacy can be nominated at a time, but this service can be useful e.g. over summer holidays, to send prescriptions to a  pharmacy outside Birmingham (as long as it is in England).

For consistency we try to make most repeat prescriptions last for 2 months treatment. A regular review is needed with a doctor between every 6-12 months.

Repeat Prescriptions for vulnerable or housebound patients

We will still have an arrangement with several local pharmacies in Selly Oak, Five Ways and Harborne that enables those of a vulnerable disposition or with a specific need to order repeat prescriptions directly from the pharmacy.  In these cases the medication will be available  for collection 1-2 working days after the request. This service is free and all you need to do is to take your re-order slip to the pharmacy of your choice and enquire about this service. Please note that if a medication review is due then the pharmacy will not be able to obtain your prescription and they will ask you to book an appointment with your usual doctor.

We also offer an online booking and home delivery service with Pharmacy2U.  Visit their website for further information and ordering.

Medication Reviews

Patients on repeat medication will be asked to see a doctor, nurse practitioner or practice nurse at least once a year to review these regular medications and notification should appear on your repeat slip. lease ensure that you book an appropriate appointment to avoid unnecessary delays to further prescriptions.
