Poplars surgery normally accepts patients under Health Service arrangements within most of the Erdington area and parts of Boldmere and Wylde Green. If in doubt, please ask one of the receptionists. When registering with the practice you may wish to express a preference of GP whom you would like to see. Please inform the receptionist and the name of the GP will be added to your records. Please bear in mind that it is not always possible to see the GP of your choice on the day of your choice. Please read on for information on the appointment system.
The full medical records of new patients often take some time to arrive. The practice believes it is important for all new patients to have a ‘new patient screening’ with our Practice Nurse. This takes around 15 minutes and includes medical and family history, blood pressure check, urine examination and lifestyle screening.
