Contraception Appointment?

Changed Address?

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.

New Patient Registrationregister_now

To register, all you have to do it fill out a short form for the health authority. We just need a few simple details from you. Having your NHS number available will allow us to administer your registration quickly and smoothly.

It can take several weeks for your notes to arrive from your home doctor, so please bring any relevant information with you.

Most students register around the start of the autumn term and the practice is specially set up to cope with the large numbers of people joining us for the first week of term; please try and register then rather than waiting until you have an urgent problem.

Medical treatment is available from the date of registration. Please contact reception for further information.

Temporary Resident, Overseas and Private Patients

We welcome short term visitors who have a medical problem needing urgent treatment to see us on a "temporary resident" basis. This does not cover routine monitoring of existing conditions.

Unfortunately we cannot offer this service for students who are in Birmingham for more than 1 month or on full-time courses - the Department of Health recommends that students register where they are resident for the majority of the year.

Some overseas visitors may be offered private care - please check with reception for our current fees but if you (and your family) are staying in the UK for more than 3 months then you will generally be entitled to NHS care and can register - we will need to check your visa and student status so please bring appropriate documentation.
