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.

Waste Medicines Campaign

Unused prescription medicines cost the NHS in the UK an estimated £300million every year.

This could pay for …

  • 11,778 MORE community nurses or
  • 80,906 MORE hip replacements or
  • 19,799 MORE drug treatment courses for breast cancer or
  • 300,000 MORE drug treatment courses for Alzheimer’s or
  • 312,175 MORE cataract operations

Wasted medicine is everyone’s responsibility and there are small changes you can make to help reduce the amount of medicine being wasted. These savings could be reinvested into more front line care and services for the benefit of all.
