Make a face to face appointment
It’s easy to make an appointment to see a doctor at Omnia. Simply call us on 0121 506 2000 or use our online appointments. Please phone as early as possible as appointments are in great demand. Our doctors work at different times of the day and week, you may need to wait a little longer to see a specific doctor.
Emergency appointments (‘Sit and Wait’) are available for issues which require urgent attention. All adult Emergency appointments are triaged by the doctors, the reception team will take your details and a doctor will call you back to discuss the matter. Please do not come to the surgery as a doctor will need to speak with you over the telephone first.
A consultation at the surgery provides the best conditions for assessing and examining patients. Home visits are only available for patients who are too ill to come to the surgery or are housebound and unable to reach the practice. Home visit requests should be made before 10:00 AM to the Duty Doctor on 0121 506 2000.
To obtain the result of a blood test, X-ray or to discover if a letter has arrived after a hospital appointment, please call reception on 0121 506 2000 between 11am and 3pm.
The receptionist will be able to tell you from the computer record if you test has returned and give you an idea of the result itself. The receptionist will let you know if you should make a appointment with the doctor.
