Changes to urgent care services at Sparkhill Primary Care Centre

Changes to urgent care services at Sparkhill Primary Care Centre (856 Stratford Road, Birmingham B11 4BW)

The current provider of urgent care services at this location will cease to provide services on 31 July 2017. This is due to an end of contract.

Birmingham South Central CCG has reviewed existing usage of the site and considered impact of the closure on patients and GP practices. We were mindful of the need to make most efficient use of limited financial resources, accessibility and availability of alternative services as well as our commitment to improve access to primary care services locally.

A new GP service will be available to registered patients at this site. Patients are welcome to register with Fernley Medical Centre who will provide GP services at this site from 1 August 2017; they are a well-established provider of GP services in the locality.

GP appointments will be available to registered patients from 08.00-20.00 Monday to Friday, and 09.00-13.00 every Saturday and Sunday (excluding bank holidays). There will also be an extended range of services offered including minor surgery, and sexual health services.

If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to one of the team at the drop in sessions:

  • Friday 7 July 12.00 to 14.00
  • Friday 21 July 18.00 to 20.00
