Branch Practice - Kings heath
We are please to announce that Park Avenue Medical Centre has taken over Kings Heath Practice (North Oval Kings Heath) with effect from 1st September 2019. This increase in patient numbers and staff will make us more resilient in the long-term. From 5th November 2019 the clinical systems of Kings Heath and Park Avenue and Kings Heath shall be merged. From that time it will be possible to book appointments to see clinicians at either practice. There will be no changes to telephone numbers or your ability to come to your own surgery. However, additional services may be offered across the two practices.
We are extremely pleased to have been able to recruit three full time nurses to the practice. All are highly experienced and very skilled in their roles. Our aim is for the nurses to meet more of the on the day demand which will free up the GPs to have more routine appointments and to better care for those who have more serious illnesses.
From 1st April 2015 the Health Secretary has determined that all patients (including children) will have a named, accountable GP who will take lead responsibility for the co-ordination of all your appropriate NHS services.
Whereas your overall care remains the responsibility of the Practice as a whole, the accountable GP shall take responsibility for coordinating your care.
Your Accountable GP is your usual GP.
This does not prevent you from seeing another GP if you so wish; the choice remains yours.
If you want to know who your accountable GP is then please ask when you next have a consultation with a practice medical professional, or ask one of the support staff, receptions, prescription clerks, the Practice Manager and we will be happy to tell you.
