Welcome to Bath Row Medical Practice Online
Appointment System Change
We frequently review our appointment system to make sure that we are providing the best service to our patients with the resources available to us. Based on our recent review we have made a change to the priority GP.
With the old appointment system we had a 'priority GP' available during the morning and afternoon. It was initially intended that the GP assigned as priority would deal with any urgent patient matters but we have found that these screens were being used more and more for non urgent matters as an overflow to the main appointment system.
With the change we have removed the priority screens and replaced these with normal GP morning and afternoon clinical appointments which provides more dedicated GP appointment availability each day. We hope that most problems that would normally go onto the priority screen will now be absorbed into our normal appointment system (with the additional appointments available).
We can already see a positive change to appointment availability and will continue to monitor the change closely in the coming weeks and months.
Bath Row Medical Practice (BRMP) is an established NHS GP Practice that has served the people of the Lee Bank area of Birmingham for over 70 years. Originally founded by Dr Lawcett, the Practice grew from a single-handed to a group practice (Lee Bank Group Practice) under Dr Brian Colston, who had the vision to bring together a variety of NHS staff to provide care from a purpose-built health centre. Under the leadership first of Dr Ian Fletcher then Dr David Morgan until 2014 and now Dr Amjad Iqbal, the Practice has continued to grow and develop. Reflecting changes to the local area in recent years, the Practice is now known as Bath Row Medical Practice and has recently moved into brand new premises in which it can continue to expand its expertise and offer enhanced facilities for the patients of inner city Birmingham.
Bath Row Medical Practice is currently a group of 4 GP Partners, 1 GP registrar, 2 Salaried GP's and 2 nurses who, together with an administrative and management support team, aim to provide NHS primary health care services for patients registered with the Practice. The Practice has a reputation for providing health care for patient groups that are often marginalised by other service deliverers. We are a lesbian-, gay-, and bisexual-friendly practice and are sensitive to trans-gender issues.
By working as a Group Practice we can offer our patients access to both male and female doctors. If you specifically wish to see a doctor of a particular gender (male or female) for any appointment we can offer you a choice of doctors, subject to their availability. Alternatively, you can choose to see a particular doctor or the first doctor available. Please click on the tabs above to find details of our appointment system.
