WELCOME TO FOUR OAKS MEDICAL CENTRE
The practice was established in the 1920’s and has greatly expanded over the last 80 years encompassing all aspects of medical care. We are part of Birmingham CrossCity Clinical Commissioning Group and aim to provide the highest possible level of care for our patients. In 1999 we became a Primary Care Beacon for our work with diabetic patients.
We run many clinics for chronic disease care and offer a wide variety of other medical services such as antenatal and postnatal care, minor surgery, childhood vaccinations and well-person check-ups.
From 1st July 2017 our practice joined together with a number of other local practices to create a new single, large merged practice called "Sutton Coldfield Group Practice". This will give us more time to spend with our patients and provide you with a better health service.

The service will no longer be available at the surgery from 1 October 2017. Ear syringing is an invasive treatment and does have a number of risks. We now advise conservative treatment of softening the wax to allow its natural migration from the ear.
We have produced a leaflet giving details of various forms of this treatment, along with information on local hearing centres who will accept self-referrals. Leaflets are available at Reception or by clicking the link here.
