Out of Hours
Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency. Call 999 in a medical emergency.
DO NOT call 999 for anything other than an emergency.
When the surgery is closed, please call the Practice in the usual way on:
0121 622 4846
Your call will automatically be transferred to Birmingham And District GP Emergency Rooms (BADGER). If, for any reason, your call is not connected to BADGER you can telephone them directly on 0121 766 2100.
What is BADGER?
BADGER is a group of local GPs who provide care outside surgery hours for patients of a number of GP Practices. Some of our own doctors help provide services at BADGER from time to time. BADGER provides services for our patients:
- On Wednesday afternoons
- Between the hours of 6.00 pm and 8.30 am Monday to Thursday
- From 6.00 pm on Friday through to 8.30am on Monday.
When your call is transferred to BADGER their staff (nurses and doctors) will give you telephone advice, ask you to attend one of their medical centres or, if the condition requires it, provide a home visit.
Alternatively, you can call NHS 111. NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones.
Please see the NHS 111 tab above for more information.
