February 2008 Aston Health Centre

Commissioned by Heart of Birmingham Teaching Primary Care Trust to serve a population of around 16,000, Summerfield Primary Care Centre was built on a site in Winson Green that had previously been regarded as “undevelopable”.

The centre is sited next to a supermarket and a small social housing scheme and helped to breathe new life into an area which was stagnating.

As well as providing modern accommodation for four GP practices, the centre has an Urgent Care Centre designed to take some pressure off the A&E department at the nearby City Hospital.

Services include:

  • GP services
  • Urgent Care Centre, funded under the Equitable Access in Primary Care (EAPC) scheme
  • Community nursing and health visiting
  • Asylum Seekers and Refugee Centre for Health
  • Podiatry
  • Phlebotomy
  • Physiotherapy
  • Pharmacy
  • Minor surgery suite
