Fernbank Medical Practice has for some time been planning to merge with Saltley Centre for Health Care, a nearby medical practice.
We hope that this will make both existing practices more resilient in the challenging environment that Primary Care is currently living through. We also plan that this will lead to improvements in the standards of care for patients at both practices, as well as improved choice for patients in where they can be seen and by whom.
Birmingham & Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group has already approved the merger, and we currently have a planned "go live" date in early January 2019.
We shall do our utmost to ensure that there is no disruption to patient services and/or care during the period of transition.
