Introducing the Practice

In The Beginning


The practice started at the end of Rotherham Road in Dr White’s garage (now a dental surgery). We moved to Holbrooks Medical Centre (part of the Holbrooks Health Centre) in 1980 with Dr Greenhalgh as Senior Partner before moving to a purpose built site in 1995 (former St Johns Ambulance HQ). Dr Holton became Senior Partner when Dr Greenhalgh passed away in 1992. In 2011 the practice underwent extensive renovations with the practice divided between 2 buildings. Dr Evans became Senior Partner when Dr Holton retired as a GP in 2014; Dr Holton retired completely 2020.

Housing Stock

Holbrooks comprises a Council housing estate to the North, an area of small terraces built by German Prisoners of war in the middle and a newer development on the site of the old dog track to the South. Monks Park comprises council flats for the most part with some newer semi-detached private housing to the West. Whitmore Park comprises larger pre-war terraces and post-war semi-detached houses. Nunts Park comprises mainly semi-detached houses with four streets of smaller terraces. Keresley is a large neighbourhood mainly larger semi-detached and detached housing. Longford and Foleshill comprise some of the oldest industrial terraced housing in the city.

About Our Team

Holbrooks Health team understands the traditional model of care is changing. We understand patient’s needs are changing and this will mean more care needs to be delivered by health care professionals who are not GPs. NHS England-Health Education England are promoting a new kind of multi-skilled team delivering high quality care to patients from their GP practices. Holbrooks Health team is pleased to be developing a “Workforce Transformation” team working with health sector partners to promote up-skilling and diversity of skill within the practice.

Patients will be ‘signposted’ to other health care professionals, such as Clinical Pharmacists and Advanced Nurse Practitioners (ANPs) who are highly skilled and have more time to help patients manage their health. We have extended our team further with the introduction of Paramedic Practitioners who support the NP/ANPs in Acute Illness Clinics and the GPs with Home Visiting.
