All the information regarding local GP Surgeries
General message from all surgeries
Please note that in order to ensure the safety of all patients and NHS staff, all appointments need to be booked by telephone, where you will be asked about your symptoms, and a GP will decide whether your matter can be managed over the telephone or other methods, or will invite you down to the surgery. Please DO NOT visit the surgery to ask to book in with a GP. Please ring only.

Updates from Knowle Surgery- 22/03/2020
GPS Healthcare, Knowle Surgery
1500 Warwick Road
Knowle surgery is now closed for face to face consultations. The team is still working ‘behind the scenes’. If you need to speak to a GP or nurse, please phone 0121 796 2777. You will be put through to the triaging Knowle doctor who can discuss with you if and when you need to be seen. If you need to be seen, you be be asked to visit one of our other local surgeries to see one of our doctors there.
The reason for closing Knowle is for two reasons. Firstly, by stopping patients coming into the surgery, we have a safe site for our ‘at risk’ colleagues to work in. This means they can continue to support the ‘patient facing’ staff. Second, by reducing the number of open surgeries, we reduce the potential for coming into contact with unwell patients. This is a strategy being echo’d not only locally, but nationally.
At present, to avoid contact with other unwell patients, we are running a scaled back services, and we’re asking for many non urgent issues to be postponed until the Covid-19 pandemic has passed. You can still access great health information from nhs.uk or our website gpshealthcare.co.uk
We thank you for your understanding at this extremely challenging times. We’ve had dozens of messages of support. We appreciate them all.
