The Avenue Road surgery will operate an emergency clinic only as it moves into temporary cabins (see photo above) on the Forest Court site.

Sainsbury’s is extending the practice as part of a deal with Solihull Metropolitan Borough Council to build a supermarket on the site.

The temporary surgery will open the next Monday, July 21, and the main surgery re-open in October.

Sainsbury’s said: “We hope to open the new and improved surgery in October and we’re really looking forward to completing the works for the benefit of the whole community.”

Meanwhile the Sainsbury’s Dorridge website lists one of the seven retails units being built alongside the supermarket as let with one under offer.

The supermarket is set to open later this year (photos below from July 3)
