The doctors and staff at St Johns Surgery in Bromsgrove are proud to offer the highest standard of patient-centred healthcare. We run many clinics for the management of chronic diseases such as asthma and diabetes and offer a wide variety of other medical services including antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
We continue to run a branch Surgery in the village of Wychbold. Wychbold Surgery offers the same range of services as our main surgery and also has a dispensary for your medication.
Due to Covid 19, St Johns and local GP Practices have amended the way they deliver their service:
The way we are working has changed considerably following government guidelines designed to reduce the transmission of coronavirus. We continue to offer consultations, but we are dealing with most patients by phone or video consultation, this means reduced numbers of patients in the surgery, making it safer for the patients who do need seeing. We have had a lot of positive feedback that you think this is working well.
The surgery remains open: - 08:00 – 18:30, Monday to Friday. Please be assured we will do our best to manage all your important health needs at this difficult time. You can arrange an appointment with a doctor or nurse:
1 By telephoning in the usual way.
2 By using the e-consult facility.
You cannot currently book online.
We are currently receiving a lot of emails from patients. We are responding to these but ideally you should use the e-consult facility.
From Monday 15 June we are moving towards seeing patients within our own Surgery by our own team. These appointments will only be booked following an initial telephone appointment and will only be at certain times of day. Please note that all clinicians will be wearing personal protective equipment during your consultation and you will be asked to wear a mask and avoid touching anything.
If you have any symptoms you are worried about but have been putting off consulting with us about, we would encourage you to please contact the surgery now – the current level of COVID is now manageable for the NHS and we are now focussing on restoring services and ensuring we refer patients on with any symptoms of potentially serious conditions. We can see patients safely and effectively if we need to.
We continue to work with eight other local practices to offer face to face appointments for those who really do need to be seen on the same day.
We have had to make changes within our building to keep everyone safe.
1. Everyone is required to bring a FACE COVERING with them when they attend an appointment and wear it whilst they are in the building. If you don’t have a face covering, they can be made easily. Example here
2. Please attend your appointment ALONE or if the appointment is for your child only one adult should attend with the child.
3. You will only be permitted to enter the building if you have a pre-booked appointment – we are unable to offer any walk-in services at the current time.
4. Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your appointment time. Please be prepared to wait in your car until the clinician is ready to see you. This is to limit the numbers of people in the building at any time to reduce the chance of transmission.
5. We are unable to offer toilet facilities at the current time.
6. Patients with possible COVID symptoms will not be able to access the main surgery, for the protection of other patients but, where necessary, can be seen in a separate facility.
