The Karis Medical Centre is a partnership of 8 doctors working with a full team of clinical and non-clinical staff providing excellent primary care health services within Birmingham. We are also a teaching practice linked to the University of Birmingham.
Welcome to Karis Medical Centre
History of Karis Medical Centre
There has been a GP surgery based here since 1948. We moved to the current premises in 1993.

The name Karis is a Greek word from the Bible, meaning grace: the giving and receiving of unearned loving kindness and acceptance.

The Karis Medical Centre aims to care holistically for patients, addressing those physical, mental, social and spiritual needs which affect their health and wellbeing. Grace, compassion, integrity, respect and hope are values which shape the lives of the staff and services we offer.

In April 1999 the Karis Neighbour Scheme was founded to help address practical needs and to deal with issues of loneliness and isolation in the local community.
Undergraduate: Karis Medical Centre is a teaching practice attached to the University of Birmingham Medical School to provide undergraduate teaching for medical students.

Over the years we are enormously grateful to the many patients who have willingly given their time for this training, either to come in to talk to the students or to take part in consultations run students under direct supervision of one of the partners.

We intend to continue this provision but will always seek your consent for any involvement in this training process.

Postgraduate: Karis Medical Centre is also a training practice linked to the South Birmingham Vocational Training Scheme for fully qualified doctors specialising to become GPs. On average we have 2 GP registrars attached to the practice.
