The University Medical Practice
We are a long established group practice of doctors working from purpose built premises on the edge of campus in Edgbaston. Whilst we have a close relationship with the University and cater mainly for students and staff, we are fully independent as a 'normal' general practice and we welcome local residents who live within the practice area to register.
We have close links with the various University departments and are well used to providing medical notes and helping with student welfare issues.
Currently there are 5 male doctors, 3 female doctors, as well as a team of 4 nurses & a phlebotomist, working in the practice and offering a wide range of medical services.
From 1 April 2015, GP Practices have been allocating all patients (including children) a named, accountable GP. The named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. However for your day to day consultations you can continue to see any doctor within the practice.
Individual patients are informed of their named, accountable GP at the first appropriate interaction with the Practice. This may include letters you receive from the Practice, a note on your prescription, a visit to reception, a text message, to name a few. Patients are welcome to contact the surgery if they wish to know their named GP.
We offer ten minute appointments during morning and afternoons, convenient for people on or around campus during the day.
