Welcome to Bath Row Medical Practice Online
Practice Update - Coronavirus
The Practice is closed on Bank Holiday Monday 25 May 2020. Please see the section under opening hours "when we are closed" for further information.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic the Practice has had to make several changes to the way we run on a day to day basis. We are limiting the amount of face to face contact at the Practice to help prevent the spread and therefore only seeing patient's face to face if it is urgent. To achieve this all of our appointments are now telephone based, this means that when you book your appointment the doctor will call you and do an assessment over the telephone; they will only bring you into the Practice if absolutely necessary. The doctors can still prescribe medication over the telephone and will try to send this electronically where possible. Please follow the governments guidelines and refrain from attending the Practice. If you are asked to attend, staff may ask you simple questions regarding your current health status, for example - have you got a persistent cough or a fever. Please do not be offended by this, it is necessary to protect our staff, other patients and to ensure the Practice stays open.
Unfortunately a number of our staff have had to follow guidelines and self isolate if they or their household are showing symptoms. Due to this we have had to make the telephone lines close earlier and go to our out of hours service provider BADGER at 4.30pm each day. We will look to lift this as and when staff return to work following their isolation period. As of week beginning 13.4.2020 this restriction has been lifted and the phones are operating at normal times.
We are trying our very best in a difficult situation to continue to provide a service to our patients. Please bear with us and support us during this by being kind to our staff - they are working extremely hard to keep the Practice running as best as possible.
I will update this page regularly when any changes are made.
Bath Row Medical Practice (BRMP) is an established NHS GP Practice that has served the people of the Lee Bank area of Birmingham for over 70 years. Originally founded by Dr Lawcett, the Practice grew from a single-handed to a group practice (Lee Bank Group Practice) under Dr Brian Colston, who had the vision to bring together a variety of NHS staff to provide care from a purpose-built health centre. Under the leadership first of Dr Ian Fletcher then Dr David Morgan until 2014 and now Dr Amjad Iqbal, the Practice has continued to grow and develop. Reflecting changes to the local area in recent years, the Practice is now known as Bath Row Medical Practice and has recently moved into brand new premises in which it can continue to expand its expertise and offer enhanced facilities for the patients of inner city Birmingham.
Bath Row Medical Practice is currently a group of 3 GP Partners, 3 Salaried GP's, 3 nurses and a Clinical Pharmacist who, together with an administrative and management support team, aim to provide NHS primary health care services for patients registered with the Practice. The Practice has a reputation for providing health care for patient groups that are often marginalised by other service deliverers. We are a lesbian-, gay-, and bisexual-friendly practice and are sensitive to trans-gender issues.
By working as a Group Practice we can offer our patients access to both male and female doctors. If you specifically wish to see a doctor of a particular gender (male or female) for any appointment we can offer you a choice of doctors, subject to their availability. Alternatively, you can choose to see a particular doctor or the first doctor available. Please click on the tabs above to find details of our appointment system.
