Solihull GP Alliance

The government and NHS England are keen to increase GP access for patients to cover Sunday-Saturday 8am-8pm. It would be impossible for a single practice to achieve this alone so we will be working with our Solihull GP Alliance colleagues to set up a service. In order to understand how this service would suit the patient we would ask that you fill in this online survey.

We are likely to be working with a single “ hub” surgery that would be based somewhere within the alliance boundary with Balsall Common being the furthest point from Monkspath Surgery.

You will see a GP from within the alliance or a locum GP. You would be very unlikely to see a GP from Monkspath Surgery.

Please bear these points in mind when filling in the survey to ensure we gauge correctly the demand that the service would generate.

The NHS is ever changing and more so recently as it faces increasing pressures on its resources. There is a project currently being worked on known as the Sustainability and Transformation Plan .These are local plans that aim to improve health and care. Produced collaboratively by local NHS organisations and local councils, they set out practical ways for the local NHS to improve NHS services and health outcomes for people in every part of England. For us in Solihull, it will probably mean working more closely with our colleagues in Birmingham.

 There are also pressures on primary care providers, like your local GP surgery to come together into larger groups to help streamline the way in which services are both commissioned and provided. There are a number of ways that this can be done, the main two being surgeries merging together to make one new large practice, or agreeing to work together in an alliance. This second option means that the GP Practice keeps its own staff and responsibilities for its patients, but that where appropriate and to the benefit of patients, it can work with like minded practices to deliver services either more efficiently, or new services that would be either difficult or not effective for individual surgeries to offer.

 The following practices in Solihull have chosen the second option

Bernays & Whitehouse

Monkspath

Hobs Moat

Haslucks

Jacey

Dorridge

Hampton

Arden

Balsall Common

Grafton Road

St Margarets

Richmond Road

Over the coming months, we will give you more information about what ideas and services we might be able to provide for all our patients, please check back
The new collaboration has been called Solihull GP Alliance and it is hoped that very shortly, it will have its own website and social media feeds. If you have any queries, questions, or comments or even ideas for new services, please contact the practice manager.
