Our practice has been present in the city since the start of the National Health Service. Originally situated in the heart of the city, the practice moved to purpose-built premises in 2006 at the city end of Newtown Road, a short distance from Shrub Hill station. To assist visitors there is a large car park at the rear of the building.
We also have a branch surgery in Kempsey which serves the villages of Kempsey, Severn Stoke, Kerswell Green, Clifton, Littleworth and Stonehall Common.
The practice provides medical services for our patients under a contract with Worcestershire Primary Care Trust. This is called a Personal Medical Services (PMS) contract and under the terms of this contract the practice maintains a patient list.
All medical facilities are fully accessible for disabled patients, including the lifts to the first floor.

Teaching & Training
GP Registrar Training
As a training practice we may have doctors working in the surgery who are spending a year training to be GPs. These doctors are fully qualified and experienced in hospital medicine.
The practice is an undergraduate teaching practice, taking medical students throughout their time at the University of Birmingham. Occasionally they may sit in during consultations. Your GP will check if you are happy with this and you have the right to decline, if you wish. Patients with certain medical conditions are invited to take part in teaching medical students. See surgery notice boards for more information.
Other Professional Training
On occasions we also have student doctors, nurses and midwives with us. This is an essential part of their training. Patients will always be informed if the doctor or nurse has a student with them. If you prefer not to have a student present during your consultation please make the staff at reception aware.
