Please ask a member of our staff if you would like further information.  

When We Are Closed

If you need urgent medical attention outside of our normal hours please phone the usual surgery on 0121 440 4666. You will be automatically connected to the out-of-hours doctor on duty 24 hours a day, weekends and bank holidays who will deal with genuine emergencies.

Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.

In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and/or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.  Please call 999 if your experience chest pain.
