With over 11,400 patients, the demand for appointments is always high and we continually analyse our system to offer the best choice that we can. There are 4 appointment types generally on offer:
Appointments are released at 8am each day, these can be accessed via the telephone or online. Appointments release each day are a mix of routine book on the day, urgent appointments ( please note these are triaged by a doctor) and appointments available pre bookable appointments that are available over the coming week.
If you require an appointment with the nurse, these can be booked upto 4 weeks in advance. Please call after 8.30am to avoid peak call times.
The 07:30 opening is only for patients who have a pre-booked appointment during our extended access arrangement.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else. Every month approximately 26 hours of doctor appointments are lost through patients not cancelling appointments that they no longer require.
Appointments can be booked online; to register for this service please download the birminghamandsolihullhealthapp, you will be able to book one appointment through the app, to have full access please come to surgery with your passport or driving licence for staff to verify your account. Once verified you will be able to book further appointments, see results and order repeat medication.
