Easy GP ... though not on the web

It's at 15 Katie Road B29 6JG, open every day 8-8, tel 0121 415 2095 for info. Not sure how long it's been around but yay for out of hours doctor access :).

However, the NHS' various web pages seem to deny its existence - the main NHS web page maintains it's never actually open, and the centre doesn't appear on searches for walk-in centres within Birmingham. Although this document says it's been open since June 2009, it refers interested people to the NHS South Birmingham site, which has zero results for a search for Katie Road walk-in centre, and only one for walk-in centre :( (even though the referring document is hosted by that site, it's clearly not indexed for search). Oh, and the website apparently is "designed to improve communication between the local NHS
and the community". Hmmmm.

Has anyone actually been there? Is it actually open?
