Midlands Medical Partnership (MMP) is a partnership of 16 GPs which provides NHS GP services to over 65,000 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 1 lead site. You may notice that letters you receive from hospitals will have Erdington Medical Centre as your listed surgery and a doctor from Erdington Medical Centre 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

> Update – Dudley Park Medical Centre Premises
Following changes to the ownership of the building where Dudley Park Medical Centre is based, Midlands Medical Partnership (MMP) and NHS Birmingham and Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are working together to find alternative and appropriate premises in the local area.
MMP has signed a lease with the new owners of the building, meaning that for the next 12 months the practice will remain where it is, patients will not see any changes, and will be able to continue to access appointments in the same way.
MMP and the CCG are currently carefully considering a number of options, to ensure that suitable alternative premises are found as soon as possible.
We look forward to providing a further update in due course.
If you have any questions or comments then please speak to a member of the reception team.

> Cervical Cancer Awareness
Cervical Cancer Awareness Week is running from Monday 20th – Friday 26th January 2020
As many as one in four women fail to get their smear test done when invited by the National Screening Programme. As cervical cancer is much more treatable when caught in the early stages – there is an increased drive to try and get as many women as possible checked for possible abnormalities.
What is Cervical Cancer?
Cervical cancer is a type of cancer that develops in a woman’s cervix (the entrance to the womb from the vagina) and often has no symptoms in the early stages.
The most common is abnormal bleeding (in between your period, after sexual intercourse etc). Abnormal bleeding does not mean that you definitely have cervical cancer, but you should always get it investigated by your GP as soon as possible.
How can you reduce the risk of getting Cervical Cancer?
- The best way to protect yourself is to attend routine cervical screening
- Be aware of the symptoms of cervical cancer and seek medical advice if experiencing any of them
- Know where to find support and further information
How to book an appointment
Call your registered surgery to book with one of our specially trained nurses.
Further information on cervical screening can be found here
