Appointments times for the doctors are normally 10 minutes and Nurses/HCA 15 minute appointment slot. To help us with availability please remember to cancel your appointment if it is no longer required, this will then giving us extra capacity to offer others. Patients who frequently fail to attend will receive a letter from the practice and may be removed if they continue to waste valuable appointment time.

Access During COVID-19

 
Due to the current Coronavirus COVID 19 Situation, the practice is operating differently. Bordesley Green Surgery is still here for you, but how you access our services has changed due to COVID-19. If you are feeling unwell or if you have any health symptoms that you are worried about, please call us to make an appointment on 0121 7661335. We are open and fully operational, but we can no longer see walk-in patients without an appointment. However we would like to assure you that we are still here to look after you and we will arrange the best care according to your health needs.
 
If you need to see a doctor or clinician face to face then this will be arranged for you. Please be aware this may be at a different local practice.
 
If you need medical advice, please call between 9am-10am and book a call back. This will likely be a phone call or a video call during practice opening hours between 9am and 6:30pm.
