Proposed Merger

We wanted to thank all of our patients for taking the time to provide feedback regarding the proposed merger of St Heliers and Dr Ali’s practice within Northfield Health Centre.


The consultation finished at the end of December, the majority of the feedback was positive. We have however noted patients’ views and comments and will ensure that these are taken into account if we are able to move forward with the proposed merger.


We have now submitted the business case application to the Bham & Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (BSOL CCG). The case will be presented to the CCG’s Primary Care Committee on the 12th February. The CCG has been very supportive of our proposals to date, so we hope that we will receive the final approval on February 12th..

We will update the website with details after this date and will continue to liaise with the Patient Participation Groups from both practices.

Patient Online Access

We have recently changed our clinical system and this has caused some disruption to our online services. We hope that these issues have now been resolved.


If you were previously registered for online services, as it is a new system, you will need to request a new access code.


Please download and complete the Form and submit it or collect a paper form in reception. We will email you with your new registration details. This should be a quick and simple process.


For new patients wishing to register for online services, you will need to present to the surgery with 2 forms of ID, one to be a photographic form and one to confirm your address.

Named GP
Accountable Named GP

If you would like to know who your allocated named GP is, please ask a member of staff next time you are visiting the surgery.
Alternatively telephone and ask one of the reception team.

PPG-MeetingThe Patient Participation Group

About the PPG

Members meet with the doctors and nurses to discuss current issues within the practice and health centre. This is usually well attended, and occurs several times a year.
We are always looking for new ideas and new members.

Agenda items are added by both parties. The aim is to streamline the smooth running of the practice and improve the service we give to you.
Any proposed changes can be discussed and jointly approved, problems aired and resolutions sought collectively.
