On the afternoon of Tuesday 19th January, GP practices across Sandwell will be closed for training purposes.

It’s really important that we keep our clinical and non-clinical teams up to date with the latest guidance and training so that they can continue to offer the best care to our patients.

Therefore all YHP practices will close at 12:00 noon and re-open on Wednesday 20th February at 8:00am.

If you need medical advice that cannot wait until we re-open at 8:00am on Wednesday morning, please contact us on our normal telephone number and you will be diverted to the out-of-hours service.

Alternatively you can use one of the following options:
