Patient-centred care lies at the heart of SDS MyHealthcare
Our practice is a member of SDS MyHealthcare. We offer face-to-face GP, Nurse and Healthcare Assistant appointments in the evenings and at weekends at our six local Hubs. These Hubs also provide our patients with a wide range of other primary care services.
Please be aware that the surgery is still open. Please call the surgery if you need to speak to a Doctor or need medical advice.
If the Dr feels that you need a face to face review this will be arranged usually on the same day. We have implemented measures to protect both patients, staff and visitors. If you do attend the surgery you will be asked to wear a face mask and attend alone or with ONE carer. Further details on how you can access our services can be found on the Covid-19 page.
If you have an appointment pre booked with a nurse or any other clinician and you or anyone in your household becomes unwell please do NOT attend the surgery and reschedule your appointment.
You can also book appointments through the Birmingham and Solihull Health App which you can download on your smartphone. If you need any assistance doing this please contact the surgery and a member of reception will be happy to help.
STAY WELL THIS WINTER
