Reception

Julie, Amanda, Marie, Kelly and Becky. Receptionists provide an important link for patients with the practice and are your initial contact point for general enquiries. They can provide basic information on services and results and direct you to the right person depending on your health issue or query. Receptionists make most of the patient appointments with the GPs and nurses. They also perform other important tasks such as issuing repeat prescriptions and dealing with prescription enquiries, dealing with financial claims, dealing with patient records and carrying out searches and practice audits.

Community Midwives

If you are expecting a baby, your care before and after the baby is born will be provided by both the doctor and our midwife. The midwife runs an antenatal clinic at the surgery, as well as seeing patients in their own homes. Pick up a maternity pack at reception after your first visit.

Health Visitors

A health visitor is a registered nurse who has received training particularly related to babies, children and pregnant women. Their role is to provide families with children under five years old with support and advice around the general aspects of mental, physical and social wellbeing. The team is based at Kingshurst Clinic , telephone 0121 329 1920.
