GP Partnership: Our Health Partnership

College Green Medical Practice – A flagship development.

Following the relocation of the Bournville College to Longbridge from Bristol Road, The Bournville Village Trust, had a vision for the community. They created a master plan of a Health Village to serve the people in this area. This master plan included a 212 apartments retirement village, 80 bedded care home for patients with dementia, 16 independent living cottages for the elderly, and a Health and Wellbeing centre to serve the people in the area.

Work began in 2012 at the site and it’s already home to nearly 300 residents and over 70 dementia patients in the care home. Health and Wellbeing centre is the last and final phase of the development and its now come to completion with the help of a joint partnership with BVT, Assura and NHS England. This scheme is a great example of the NHS long-term plan of collaboration between many public and private sector parties who share the same vision.

The three local practices in the area, Bunbury Road Surgery, Griffins Brook Medical Centre, and Granton Medical Centre have merged together as one practice which is now called College Green Medical Practice, and it is now operational from its new premises in the Health and Wellbeing centre. It’s a great opportunity for the patients in the area to benefit from the modern facilities to access their health care needs. With over 25 consulting rooms, modern waiting areas, improved access with lifts and wheelchair access, modern minor surgery suite with state of art operating facilities, and ample parking on-site for cars and bikes, it’s an example of how working together brings the strength and resilience to fulfil the needs of our patients in line with the modern NHS vision.

All three practices in the area have been well known for the quality of care they provide to their patients, and we will strive to deliver the same quality and continuity of care, even though operating in a bigger partnership. Where possible our patients will be able to speak to the GP of their choice. We have embraced technology by implementing online consultations to improve access and continuity of care. Patients who cannot access technology can still access the practice using our telephone lines and will be greeted by the same friendly administration team.

At College Green, believe in preserving our history and heritage whilst embracing the change to adopt the needs of modern NHS. We have some long-standing patients at our practice who have stayed with us through the change, we remain grateful to their loyalty and trust in us.
