Welcome To Monkspath Surgery

Background To The Practice

Monkspath Surgery was founded by Dr Stan Darling in 1985 and the current surgery was built in 1987. The patient list size is approximately 12,000. The practice has taken on a significant role in medical student training since 1995.

Monkspath Surgery is one of the practices in the Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group.

Solihull Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) has been authorised to lead the local NHS by commissioning (buying and monitoring) high quality healthcare services for the people of Solihull.

CQC Visit

The surgery had their first CQC visit on April 1st 2015. The report has been completed and we are pleased to announce that we have been graded as "good" in all categories.


We do not accept repeat prescription requests over the phone for patient safety reasons. Written requests can be brought to the surgery, faxed on 01217113753 or you can sign up to Vision Online at reception and from then on request repeat prescriptions online. You should allow 48 working hours after request for the prescription to be ready. If you are going on holiday and need your prescription earlier than normal you must put this on the request or the prescription will not be generated until nearer to the due date. If you are unsure whether you need a medication review before your prescription will be authorised please phone or call in and ask at reception.

Accountable/Named GP For All Patients

The practice is required by the Government under the terms of the latest GP contract to allocate all patients a named accountable GP. Individual patients will be informed of their named accountable GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice. For convenience your accountable GP will be the named doctor you are registered with.

Please note: there is no need to telephone the practice for this information.

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.

Prescription Drug Update

Some types of drug e.g Tramadol have been re-classified by the Home Office to Controlled Drugs. This means these drugs will no longer be available on a patient’s repeat prescription and will need to be requested each time. All Controlled Drug prescriptions will need to be signed for when collected at reception.

Due to this classification change prescriptions for these drugs are only valid for 28days.
