Meet the Midland Health Team
Dr Rupa Parmar, Private GP
Hi I'm Rupa and passionate about delivering high quality private General Practice that is personalised, accessible and delivered with care. I was an NHS GP Partner for just over 10 years and still work as GP with a special interest in Gynaecology within the NHS. I have experience as a Medical Director in establishing and overseeing a large private GP service in the heart of Birmingham city centre. I am now working with The Westbourne Centre to set-up and deliver private General Practice from the heart of Edgbaston in a superb CQC registered facility with clinic rooms and theatres.
I love being a GP as I enjoy treating people with different medical problems whether they are physical, psychological or emotional. I enjoy seeing the variety of age ranges and I get a lot of job satisfaction from personally getting to know my patients and their families. I have a very privileged role in that I am given an opportunity to support people in some of their most difficult and challenging times. As an experienced NHS GP I now know the quality of care and continuity I would like to offer my patients to ensure a modern day General Practice service is being delivered. I am now able to offer a more personal service and practice the sort of medicine that my patients need and deserve through Midland Health.
I am a generalist at heart but my special interests include preventative and lifestyle medicine, gynaecology, contraception and mental health. If there is anything you can't find on our website then please feel free to get in touch as we will most likely be able to cater to your needs, all you need to do is just ask! I look forward to welcoming you at Midland Health and helping you to live life better.

Dr Christos Kasparis, Consultant Dermatologist
Dr. Christos Kasparis is a UK-trained Consultant Dermatologist and has been practicing in Dermatology since 2008. He completed his medical training at Manchester University in 2004, before training in general medicine until 2008 giving him broad and valuable exposure to various medical specialties, as many skin conditions can be related to other medical conditions. Since qualifying, he has worked at many well respected and renowned Dermatology centres across the UK to broaden his dermatology experience.
His passion had always been to become a Dermatologist and he is enthusiastic about all aspects of the skin and strives to offer the best and most up-to-date therapies to his patients. Patient satisfaction is of paramount importance to him and he always aims to tailor his treatment to the patient's needs. He looks after patients with all types of general dermatological conditions with particular interest and expertise in skin surgery from benign lesions such as skin tags, moles and cysts to more advanced skin cancer removal and repair. He is trained in aesthetic procedures including anti-ageing and filler injections as well as laser therapy for scarring and rejuvenation. He has been practicing in the cosmetic sector since 2011. His philosophy is that no skin problem is too small or too big to be treated if this is affecting the patient. As a Dermatologist, he treats both adults and paediatrics with any type of skin condition including acne, eczema, psoriasis, moles and skin cancer, skin allergy, urticaria, blistering conditions, hyperhidrosis, vitiligo, warts, genital skin problems and hair, and nail disorders.
