Extended Access Clinics


The Extended Access Clinics are now OPEN! 


There are now more routine primary care appointments available making it easier for you to get an appointment at a time that suits you in the evenings and at weekends. The new Extended Access Service is an extension of your usual primary care delivered by the practice. Appointments will be booked by our reception staff or GP’s but please note, it is not a walk-in service so you will need to make an appointment.


The new Bordesley Green Access Hub is an additional service that is based at the Omnia Practice. Appointments between 6.30 – 8.00 pm weekdays and on Saturday and Sunday mornings 8.30-11.30.

X-Ray

If you have a X-ray, you will be asked to lie on a table or stand against a surface so that the part of your body being X-rayed is between the X-ray tube and the photographic plate.

An X-ray is usually carried out by a radiographer, a healthcare professional who specialises in using imaging technology, such as X-rays and ultrasound scanners.

You can find out more about x-ray tests, how they are performed, their function and the risks by visiting the NHS Choices website.
