There are currently national issues with BT telephone lines and we are experiencing calls being cut off. If this happens to you while calling the surgery, please call us back. We hope BT will have resolved their issues very soon and we are sorry for any inconvenience caused. Thank you.
Please note, our phone number has changed to 0121 289 3418
To speak to a doctor or prescribing nurse
1. Contact the surgery by phone and select option 1, or through our website or appointment app here.
All our doctors are qualified to help, but if you want a particular one please call on a day they are working. See below for details of their availability.
You will also be asked to provide a brief reason for your request. If you prefer, you can leave this as personal, however it helps the clinician to prepare for your consultation.
2. The doctor or prescribing nurse calls you back. You can then discuss with them the reason for your consultation.
3. You are always seen if needed. If the doctor or prescribing nurse needs to see you, they will offer you a same-day appointment.
To contact reception
For clinics, repeat prescription information, test results, interpreters, referrals or general enquiries call 0121 289 3418 and select option 2.
