We hold an antenatal clinic on Monday and Wednesday afternoons where you will see a midwife. Please let us know when you come home from hospital, as it can take several days for information to come to us from the hospital.

The practice offers maternity services and has attached midwifes from Good Hope Hospital. Patients are required to book their initial appointment with a GP for signposting to appropriate care.

 

Minor Operations

Some minor operations and joint injections can be carried out in the surgery. Your Doctor will decide if this is possible and will make arrangements for this to be done.

 

Smear Tests

We are involved in the Birmingham Health Authority recall scheme; this aims to call every eligible woman for a smear test. Smear tests can be done at various different times through the week by the doctors and nurses who have undergone specific training for this. Appointments can be made via reception in the normal way stating that it is for a smear test so that the appropriate appointment is made. 

The Shared Service Authority computer will normally send out the result to you, or you can contact the surgery, the results usually take 2 to 3 weeks.
