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.

Named accountable GP for all patients

From 1 April 2015, GP practices will be allocating all patients (including children) a named, accountable GP.

The named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that our surgery provides to you. However for your day to day consultations you can continue to see any Doctor within the practice.

Individual patients will be informed of their named accountable GP at the first appropriate interaction with the practice. This may include letters you receive from the Practice, a note on your prescription, a visit to reception, a text message, to name a few. Patients are welcome to contact the surgery if they wish to know their named GP.
