A transport facility for people struggling to get to a Covid vaccination site has been set up so citizens can get their first, second or booster jab.

The partnership between the city council, NHS and Taxi Operators’ Association will provide a free taxi service to the nearest vaccination site for people with mobility issues and those who face financial and practical barriers to using private or public transport.

Funded by the NHS it will ensure anyone who wants to get vaccinated will be able to attend a clinic or vaccination site.

Quote: “We know there are many citizens who are keen to get their vaccination but are struggling to get to a site due to mobility problems, lack of assistance or financial barriers. Nobody should be in the position where they cannot get a life-saving jab because of any of these issues so this it is great news that this service is up and running. I would urge anyone who is yet to be vaccinated – whether first, second or booster – to please get the jab.”

 People should find their nearest vaccination site and then they will be get instructions to book the cab.

People can find full details of how to book the service here:

Practice Update - Coronavirus (updated 10.06.2021)

COVID-19 Vaccination Update

We gave the millionth vaccine in the city! Please see the article below and accompanying video from Dr Okonkwo:

Please do not contact the practice to ask for a COVID-19 vaccination. Strictly controlled priority groups will be contacted directly to book into vaccination clinic appointments. You will be contacted when it’s your turn to be vaccinated in the coming weeks and months.

We have been asked by NHS England to start delivering the COVID-19 mass vaccination programme from Wednesday 6th January 2021. This will be done by working together with our local GP Practices (called a Primary Care Network) to provide the vaccines. Bath Row Medical Practice will be the host site for the vaccination programme.

For further information about the vaccine please see:
For Further information on blood-clotting please read the following guidance available here:

If you require a vaccination status for travelling abroad please read the following guidance available here:

The latest guidance advises that pregnant women should also be vaccinated.  Please see the following link for full information:

For proof of vaccination you can see your status by:

COVID-19 General Practice Update

All of our appointments with the doctors are still telephone based, this means that when you book your appointment the doctor will call you and do an assessment over the telephone; they will only bring you into the Practice if absolutely necessary.  

If you are asked to attend the Practice you will be told to either attend in the normal way (wearing a face mask) or:

  • Wear a face mask
  • Wait in the car park and call the reception when you arrive
  • Be collected from the car park by the GP
  • Be brought into and out of the Practice via a different entrance and seen in a room away from the rest of the Practice. You will not be allowed in the main waiting area.

The clinician will advise which of these to follow.

Due to the above measures we have put in place, our nursing appointments can now be brought back to Bath Row instead of being seen at Harborne Medical Practice.  They can only do certain procedures like childhood immunisations, dressings etc and Staff will advise you accordingly when you call of what can and can't be done.

Please still refrain from attending the Practice in person unless you have a booked appointment with the nurse.  If you do have a booked appointment with the nurse, please ensure to wear a face mask.

When you are booking your appointment you will be asked simple questions regarding your current health status, for example - have you got a persistent cough or a fever.  Please do not be offended by this, it is necessary to protect our staff, other patients and to ensure the Practice stays open.

I have recently added more appointments available to book in advance and online.

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.

If you have been affected by coronavirus please watch the following video for some useful advice on post viral recovery - 

I will update this page regularly when any changes are made.

Thank you.

Practice Background

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 3 GP Partners,  3 Salaried GP's, 3 nurses and a Clinical Pharmacist 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.
