We all work together to enhance your healthcare in every way possible.

Our team is made up of a range of experienced and respected professionals. They include GPs and Nurses, along with Allied Health Professionals such as Health Visitors, Midwives and Councellors. Our clinical team is backed up by a full compliment of administrative staff.

The Practices vision and ambition towards the delivery of patient care was greatly inspired by our previous Senior Partner, Dr Ashok Vora. Dr Vora joined the Surgery in 1983 and became Senior Partner in 1998. During his time at the Surgery, Dr Vora was also an advisor to the PCT, helping to shape healthcare services in the local area and was the founding member of SouthDocServices, providing out-of-hours care to the South Birmingham communities. Dr Vora’s unwavering dedication in ensuring his patients received the highest level of care is still an inspiration to the Surgery team, even after his sad passing in 2022.
