Portland Medical Practice will NOT be registering patients who live 'Out of Area' under the new Voluntary arrangements that were introduced by NHS England from 5.1.2015.

Also we will NOT be taking part in the Enhanced service scheme to offer Urgent Care/Home Visits to individuals who live in Aldridge BUT have CHOSEN to register with an alternative 'OUT of Area' GP.

Our aim is to focus our resources on patients who have full permanent registration with us.

Details of alternative GPs may be obtained by contacting the allocations officer at NHS Walsall 01922 618388.
