NHS 111

In the case of urgent need when the practice is closed you can call NHS 111 to speak to a triage nurse. Your needs will be assessed and advice offered or arrangements made for you to see a doctor.

Call 999 in a medical emergency. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.

The practice will be open again, as usual on Tuesday 8th May 2018.

Online Repeat Prescriptions

Bath Row Medical Practice now offers the facility to request your repeat prescriptions online up to 7 days before they are due. To use this service you will need to be registered for online services at the practice. If you are a new patient at the practice this service will be offered when you register with us. If you are an existing patient please bring I.D (Passport, Driving Licence, Birth Certificate, Bank Statement or Utility Bill) to a member of our reception team who will help you register. Please note that in some cases the doctor will need to check your medication is safe for online prescribing before your online details are issued.

Summary Care Record (SCR)

VERY IMPORTANT - Please read the information about SCR here:

Friends and Family Test

The NHS Friends and Family Test (FFT) is the largest healthcare patient experience in the world. It is based on the simple question "Would you recommend this service to your friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?"

Please click the "Friends and Family Test" link under the heading "Have your say" on the right of this page in order to complete the Friends and Family Test.

Alternatively questionnaires are available at the practice if you prefer.

Home Visits

Doctor's bagIf you think you require a home visit, please telephone the surgery on 0121 622 4846 before 11:00am so the doctors can plan efficient use of the day.

When you ask for a visit you will be asked for details of your health problem and for a contact telephone number.

You will be told that the On Call Doctor will telephone you to find out more about your illness. Please stay by the telephone, make sure the phone is set so that you can answer it immediately (i.e. not on voicemail), and wait for the doctor to call. When the doctor calls, s/he will assess your request and decide whether a home visit is necessary or whether your problem may be better dealt with in another way.

Visits can only be made to people whose health problems prevent them from getting to the surgery. This is because the doctor is better able to diagnose your problems with the facilities available at the surgery than with the equipment that they carry with them. Please be prepared to come to the surgery if it is at all possible.

Please note that on Wednesday and Thursday afternoons from 1.00pm onwards responsibility for dealing with any home visit requests is taken over by our 'out of hours‘ service. If you telephone the surgery on either of these afternoons you will be given the telephone number for Birmingham and District GP Emergency Rooms (BADGER). A BADGER doctor or nurse will triage your request in the same way as we would at the practice (see the Out of Hours tab above for further information)
