Bartley Green Medical Practice has its origins in a modest health centre opened in 1977. This stood where our current car park is, and was demolished to make way for our new practice building in 1999. The present building was opened by the Lord Mayor in July 2000. It offers us more consulting rooms, more clinical areas, better accommodation for our health visitors and midwives, more administration space and enhanced facilities for teaching. Since the introduction of the new General Medical Services contract for practices, the practice provides core services and a range of direct and national enhanced services for patients.
