IMPORTANT INFORMATION

The Wand Medical Centre is still open, but the way we can all access healthcare during the Covid-19 pandemic has changed. In order to ensure the safety of all our patients and staff our doors remain closed and we ask all our patients not to visit the practice without speaking with a member of the practice team first. Most queries can now be dealt with over the telephone which mitigates risk and saves you time. In order to further support patients during this difficult time, a health app for Birmingham and Solihull patients is available. It is free to download from the Apple or Google Play Stores and is very easy to use.

You can also visit:https://app.birminghamandsolihullhealthapp.com

The app is secure and links directly with your GP practice. You can order your repeat medication via the app 24 hours per day. You can also check any symptoms you may have. The app will then give you access to the right type of advice / appointment. Download the app now so it is at your fingertips when needed.

Almost all women from the age of 25 to 49 should have a smear every three years and from the age of 50 to 65 every five years, the practice nurses and sometimes the doctors provide this quick and simple test.

The doctors and our health visitors provide this service for children less than five years old. We would encourage you to bring your child’s red book when they attend appointments with us.
