On behalf of practice team and PPG Group we want to wish you all a Merry Xmas and New Year, stay safe and well, we are raising funds for xmas hampers to give to patients who have recently dealt with or dealing with bereavement of loved ones and who need some support during these challenging time.
There are 7 GP practice’s who are members of the Wolverhampton north network. They are Ashfield Road Surgery, Cannock Road Surgery, Keats Grove Surgery, MGS Medical Practice, Prestbury Medical Practice, Showell Park Health Centre and Woden Road Surgery. We are currently able to offer vaccination to certain patient groups registered at all of these practices.
We are currently booking vaccinations for patients over 80 who are not housebound or in residential care, unfortunately we cannot vaccinate people outside of these groups at present. (this will change with cohorts)
Please visit www.wolverhamptonnorthnetwork.co.uk and follow the link to our COVID Immunisation page for up to date information on our COVID vaccine service. You will find information on upcoming clinics, which patients we are currently vaccinating as well as links to advice and leaflets on the vaccine itself.
Vaccination clinics are being held at Keats Grove Surgery. The address is 17 Keats Grove, Low Hill, Wolverhampton WV10 8LY. It is just off the Cannock Road in the Scotland’s Estate. The nearest bus stop is Mill Lane bus stop on the A460 Cannock Road. It is a 3-minute walk from the bus stop to the Practice. Please do not contact the practice directly regarding COVID immunisations.

Welcome to MGS Medical Practice, we are part of Our Health Partnership (OHP) A healthy future for patients and practices, We received an innovation award in November 2019.
Our aim is to provide an effective and excellent service to all service users, who are registered to our practices. Our premises are suitable for both able bodied and non-able bodied service users; we have ramps leading into the buildings to aid access for all.
We also have parking spaces outside the building which are reserved for patients displaying a disabled sticker.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
