A brief introduction to the Practice…..
We have produced this website to provide you with information about the way the Practice is organised and the services that are provided directly by Practice Staff, or by other members of the Primary Health Care Team. Services will, by necessity, change from time to time, please do not hesitate to telephone the Practice to check the current position.
As from 1st October, 2018, we will be part of a network of practices, known as the South Shropshire Medical Group, working together to offer patients ‘Extended Access’ to pre-bookable appointments – in the evenings and on a Saturday morning.
