Midlands Medical Partnership (MMP) is a partnership of 23 GPs which provides NHS GP services to over 67,000 patients through one individual GP practice operating from eleven surgeries across Birmingham.
MMP was formed by the merger of seven pre-existing practices on 1st April 2009. An eighth practice, All Saints Medical Centre in Kings Heath, joined MMP in July 2011, a ninth, Mere Green Surgery in Four Oaks, Sutton Coldfield joined in April 2012. Our tenth, Dudley Park Medical Centre in Acocks Green joined us in October 2012 and our eleventh, Sparkhill Surgery joined in August 2016.
The vision behind the creation of MMP is to improve and develop all that is excellent about traditional GP services – local GPs leading and working in local surgeries to provide long-term doctor/patient relationships based on the established values of trust and personalised care, whilst at the same time being part of a larger, more corporate business structure, allowing our practices and patients to benefit from the resources of a larger organisation, enabling us to improve the range and quality of patient services, improve access and patient responsiveness and improve learning across our organisation.
MMP’s core purpose is “to work within a culture of quality to constantly improve the care and service we give our patients.”
NOTICE TO PATIENTS
As a result of a contractual change with NHS England and a national spine IT issue out of our control, Midlands Medical Partnership (MMP) is set up nationally as 4 lead sites. You may notice that letters you receive from hospitals will have any one of Erdington Medical Centre/The Old Priory Surgery/Dudley Park Medical Centre/Mere Green Surgery as your listed surgery and a doctor from one of the above surgeries as your GP. Please be aware that this is an administrative entry and rest assured that you are still registered at your chosen MMP Surgery. Your GP will remain the same and will receive all your hospital correspondence. Community nursing teams and other service providers may query your surgery or GP when making contact with you, e.g. when scheduling appointments. Please ask them to refer to the ‘about us’ section on our website (mmpmedical.com) where they will be able to read this statement. If you have any issues please ask the provider to contact your GP surgery.
NAMED ACCOUNTABLE GP – NOTICE TO PATIENTS
From 1 April 2015, practices are required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients
If you wish to be told the name of your named, accountable GP, please ask the receptionists when you are next in the surgery. For convenience your named, accountable GP will be called your ‘usual GP’.
Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.
If you express a preference as to which GP you have been assigned, the practice will make reasonable efforts to accommodate this request.
Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the practice. Your named GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may need to discuss them with an alternative doctor.
All clinicians will have full access to you medical records when dealing with your needs
