Fernley Medical Centre based in Sparkhill Birmingham has been providing GP services from 1894. It began as a single doctor’s residence with surgery facilities and has evolved into the present day primary health care team consisting of doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals. We are an established GP practice, renowned for our dedication and commitment to providing high-quality patient care.
In 2015 Fernley Medical Centre became part of MyHealthcare; an innovative project to deliver care to patients seven days a week. The practice is one of the main Hubs delivering GP services to patients in the locality.
The model is designed to:
- Maximise the efficiency of clinical time
- Reduce inappropriate demands on urgent care services
- Improve overall access for patients
- Harness new technologies
- Integrate services

Update on Coronavirus
The public are being advised to stay at home (self-isolate) without any testing for COVID-19, regardless of travel history or contact with confirmed cases, if they have:
a. A new continuous cough
b. High temperature (of 37.8 degrees centigrade or higher)
2. The geographic element of the case definition has now been removed. Travel and contact history are no longer important for diagnosis, which is on the basis of symptoms alone. If people who have travelled do not have symptoms they do not need to stay at home, regardless of their travel history.
Individuals should stay at home (self-isolate) for 7 days from the onset of symptoms following the current advice. If someone has serious symptoms they cannot manage at home they should use NHS 111 online (people should only call NHS111 if they cannot get online). For more information please clickhere
