Premises relocation update


Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback as part of the listening exercise on the potential relocation of Prestbury Medical Practice. The feedback report on patient and stakeholder engagement was presented to the NHS Black Country and West Birmingham Clinical Commissioning Group’s August Primary Care Commissioning Committee for review. Taking into account all of the factors, including quality and safety, estates, patient feedback and finances it was decided that in the best interests of patients to allow the Prestbury Medical Practice to proceed to the next stage of developing a new purpose-built medical centre at Hellier Road, Bushbury.  We will keep you updated.



COVID 19 Update October 2021


July 19th 2021 is when all restrictions for COVID were removed. The practice is a high risk environment and we are keen to maintain a safe and healthy place for you to be. Please help us to keep you and those around you safe.  Masks - the continued wearing of masks is current government guidance and is strongly recommended. Please wear your mask if you come into the practice for any reason.  Social distancing - we will continue to promote social distance awareness.  Please use chairs available in the waiting area, which are separated for distance purposes. If there is no seating left, please consider waiting outside until one becomes available.  Hand Sanitiser - this will continue to be provided. Please use when entering the building and when leaving.  Your help with keeping us safe is appreciated. Many thanks.

Repeat Prescriptions

As you may be aware the practice is under a lot of pressure and to relieve some of that pressure we would like to enable your prescriptions to go directly to a Pharmacy of your choice.

Once you have placed your order in your usual way, your prescription will then be sent directly to the Pharmacy where you can collect when ready or arrange to have it delivered. If you order repeat medication could you please respond to this message with the name and address of the Pharmacy you regularly use so we can update our records.

You can request your repeat prescriptions by:

  • Post - enclosing a stamped, addressed envelope if you wish us to post your prescription back.
  • Hand delivered - we have a box in reception area to avoid you having to queue at the reception desk.

Alternatively you can order online. New users are required to complete a simple registration document.
