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.
