Portland Medical Practice will not be registering patients who live 'Out of Area' under the new Voluntary arrangements that were introduced by NHS England from 5.1.2015. The practice area map can be seen at the end of this page.
We will not be taking part in the Enhanced service scheme to offer Urgent Care/Home Visits to individuals who live in Aldridge but have chosen to register with an alternative 'OUT of Area' GP.
Our aim is to focus our resources on patients who have full permanent registration with us.
All patients of the practice have now been given a Named Accountable GP. Staff will advise you of who this is on request when you visit the practice. if you wish to alter the allocated GP, please ask the receptionist.
Please remember that, as the practice is a partnership with several GPs, you can see a GP other than your named accountable GP.
Details of alternative GPs may be obtained by contacting the allocations' officer at NHS Walsall 01922 618388.
The easiest way to register with the practice is by clicking on the link below and completing the online form.
