Social Prescribing and Lifestyle Advice
Onside Advocacy are delighted to work in partnership with The Corbett Medical Practice to deliver the new Neighbourhood Social Prescribing service.
Social Prescribing recognises that some of life’s problems can make you unwell and health conditions harder to deal with. Medical treatment may only be part of the solution. Social Prescribing offers options to link patients with local support sources to improve your health and wellbeing.
The Social Prescriber works with patients to identify the issues, difficulties and challenges they face and explore what is important to them. They support the patient to access local services and activities. This includes a wide range of options, eg: advice and information on; housing, finance, benefits support, education and learning, healthy lifestyle, social activities and mentoring.
Lifestyle advice helps you feel healthier and happier by addressing lifestyle issues such as diet, smoking, alcohol and exercise. Our Advisor will work with you to identify an approach and support to help you achieve your goals. You can refer yourself into this service here.
Please speak to a member of the practice team to get a referral to the Social Prescriber.
If you require any vaccinations relating to foreign travel you need to make an appointment with the practice nurse to discuss your travel arrangements. This will include which countries and areas within countries that you are visiting to determine what vaccinations are required.
There is further information about countries and vaccinations required on the links below
It is important to make this initial appointment as early as possible - at least 6 weeks before you travel - as a second appointment will be required with the practice nurse to actually receive the vaccinations. These vaccines have to be ordered as they are not a stock vaccine. Your second appointment needs to be at least 2 weeks before you travel to allow the vaccines to work.
Some travel vaccines are ordered on a private prescription and these incur a charge over and above the normal prescription charge. This is because not all travel vaccinations are included in the services provided by the NHS.

The Corbett Medical Practice is an established and active teaching practice.
This means that the Practice teaches years 1- 4 of Birmingham Medical School undergraduate students. Their course involves them learning about and experiencing General Practice and seeing patients in the Practice environment under the supervision of our GPs. All of our GPs have a passion and commitment to teaching and training the next generation of health care professionals, and most of our GPs are actively involved in teaching these students.
In addition to undergraduate medical students, the Practice also trains post-graduate Doctors in their second year after qualification (Foundation year 2 "FY2") but especially Doctors who have chosen to specialise in General Practice and are on an official specialist training program (Specialist Trainees - ST1, ST2 or ST3).
Whilst all of these Doctors are qualified, they practice under the clinical supervision of specific GP trainers in the practice and are always supervised in clinics by fully qualified General Practitioners.
As not all services we offer are available under the NHS, private fees may be payable. Please refer to the attached schedule for current charges.
