GP practices are working together to provide Improved Access appointments to our patients. This means that your Improved Access appointment may be with a different GP, nurse or based in a different location or practice than you are used to, and some of these appointments are telephone only. 

These appointments are pre-bookable by contacting the surgery during our opening times – when calling please ask for an Improved Access appointment and our receptionists will help you to find a convenient appointment.

Alternatively you can now call a dedicated number direct to book an appointment 01905 789061. This line is open weekdays 18:30 – 20:00 and weekends 08:00 – 12:00.

Please remember that several patients can be seen in the practice in the time that it takes to make one home visit. There are also better facilities for examining and treating patients at the surgery.

Medical Student and Trainee GPs

The Corbett Medical Practice is an established and active teaching practice.

This means that the Practice teaches years 1- 4 of Birmingham Medical School undergraduate students. Their course involves them learning about and experiencing General Practice and seeing patients in the Practice environment under the supervision of our GPs. All of our GPs have a passion and commitment to teaching and training the next generation of health care professionals, and most of our GPs are actively involved in teaching these students. 

In addition to undergraduate medical students, the Practice also trains post-graduate Doctors in their second year after qualification (Foundation year 2 "FY2") but especially Doctors who have chosen to specialise in General Practice and are on an official specialist training program (Specialist Trainees - ST1, ST2 or ST3).

Whilst all of these Doctors are qualified, they practice under the clinical supervision of specific GP trainers in the practice and are always supervised in clinics by fully qualified General Practitioners.
