University of Birmingham Medical Practice
The University Medical Practice
We are a long established group practice of doctors working from purpose built premises on the edge of campus in Edgbaston. Whilst we have a close relationship with the University and cater mainly for students and staff, we are fully independent as a ‘normal’ general practice and we welcome local residents who live within the practice area to register.
We have close links with the various University departments and are well used to providing medical notes and helping with student welfare issues.
Currently there are 5 male doctors, 3 female doctors, as well as a team of 4 nurses & a phlebotomist, working in the practice and offering a wide range of medical services. We have been a stable group practice for the past few years.
We offer ten minute appointments during morning and afternoons, convenient for people on or around campus during the day.
The surgery is opened at the following times:
|Monday||08:30 – 17:30|
|Tuesday||08:30 – 17:30|
|Wednesday||08:30 – 17:30|
|Thursday||08:30 – 17:30|
|Friday||08:45 – 17:00|
A few appointments are available over lunchtime on some days and tend to be very popular.
New Patient Registration
Registering is simple and involves completing a short form for the health authority and seeing the practice nurse for a brief health check. It helps us if you know the details of your existing GP and your NHS number.
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 1st week of term; please try and register then rather than waiting until you have an urgent problem.
