This branch, in the area between Cotteridge and Northfield, was opened as a part-time office in 1966 - in conjunction with another part-time branch at Bartley Green.
 
West Heath's initial opening arrangements were:
   - Tuesday ...... 10:00 to 15:00
   - Thursday ..... 10:00 to 15:00
   - Saturday ..... 10:00 to 11:30
 
Norman Monk was appointed the Manager of both West Heath and Bartley Green, alternating his attendance between the two offices from Monday to Friday. On Saturdays, when both branches were open, a Relief Branch Manager (Terry Cox) was in charge at West Heath. Terry also managed Newtown Row branch, which was open on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Wednesdays - spending his Thursdays and Fridays at City branch.
 
In the following year, Friday hours were added in the evening - 17:00 to 19:00
 
From July 1st 1969, when Saturday opening ceased in the banking industry generally,
the following hours of business applied:
   - Tuesday ..... 10:00 to 15:00
   - Thursday .... 10:00 to 15:00 and 16:00 to 19:00
   - Friday ......... 10:00 to 17:00
 
In 1970, the branch became a full-time office.
