1.5 out of 5 stars

Based on 8 ratings for this GP surgery


The origins of the practice can be traced back for at least one hundred and forty five years.  Kelly’s and similar old directories of Smethwick list Beaufort House, Raglan Road, as a doctor’s residence from at least 1860.   The Practice was run by Doctor Moorhead, who retired in 1931. 


In 1932 the practice was purchased by Doctor Hyman Hamilton who later acquired the premises at 110 Norman Road, as a branch surgery.


With the practice expanding Dr. Hamilton was joined by Dr. H. Josephs, Dr. R.F. Martin, Dr. E. Adams and then in 1964 by Dr. A.P. Joseph.


With the retirements of Dr. Hamilton, Dr. Josephs, Dr. Martin and Dr. Adams the practice was joined by Dr. F.A. Khan, Dr. K.E. Roberts, Dr. P.T.Y. Wong and Dr. D.A. Harrington.  In 1987 Dr. Joseph became Senior Partner, and upon his retirement in June 1999, Dr. M.M.A. Baig later joined the practice.


In June 2007, Dr. P.T.Y. Wong decided to resign from the practice and Dr. Pathan joined the practice in April 2008.

In June 2008, Dr. K.E. Roberts retired from the practice.
