Cheddar Road Surgery closes on 10 January 2019

Cheddar Road Surgery, based at 55 Cheddar Road, Balsall Heath, Birmingham, B12 9LJ, will close on 10 January 2019.

After this date all appointments will take place at Summerfield Family Practice’s main site, based at Summerfield Primary Care Centre, Winson Green Road, Winson Green, Birmingham, B18 7AL.

The closure was proposed by the practice as only four patients a week were being seen at Cheddar Road Surgery, and GPs and practice staff had to travel daily between the main practice and the branch site. The building was also in need of significant investment.

Patients and stakeholders were asked for their views during an engagement period which took place in November 2018. You can read the engagement report here. The closure request was approved by the Primary Care Committee of NHS Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group and you can read more here.

If you have any questions about the closure, please contact the practice by calling 0121 411 0362 or alternatively you can call NHS Birmingham and Solihull CCG’s Primary Care Team (Monday-Friday 9am-5pm) on 0121 203 3347.

3) Pathology labs arrangements
The pathology labs will NOT provide a collection service on:
• Christmas Day
• Boxing Day
• New Year’s Day

In addition, they will be collecting specimens earlier than usual on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve. Patients should NOT book into Extended Access appointments for bloods or smears on ANY of those days.

4) Walk-In Centres and Urgent Treatment Centres
For details on these arrangements, please see the news section of the CCG website by clicking here.

Please remember that the Extended Access service is for booked appointments only. Patients can access the service either via their registered practice, by self-booking using the PatientPack App, or via NHS 111. The Hubs can’t treat patients who contact them via any other route as they won’t have access to their medical records.

Times are changing - Evening and weekend appointments now available

You can now book an appointment to see a GP, nurse or other healthcare professional in the evening or at the weekend. Speak to your practice receptionist or a member of the practice team to find out more visit or to book an appointment.
