Church Stretton Medical Practice
We are situated near the centre of the small market town of Church Stretton. The town is built in a valley between two lines of hills and is located about 15 miles south of Shrewsbury. It is a holiday centre especially for walkers and mountain bikers who enjoy the routes through the outstanding scenery around Church Stretton and the South Shropshire hills in general.
We currently care for over 7400 patients. The practice is committed to providing the highest possible up to date standard of medical and nursing care, in a professional and compassionate manner, whilst respecting patients confidentiality. We aim to offer an approachable and efficient service, putting the needs of our patients first.
Please remember that everyone working at the practice treats all patient information in the strictest confidence. Sometimes our reception staff need a little more information from a patient to help the doctors and nurses.
We are a training practice, linked to Keele University Medical School, and from time to time medical students may be present at your consultation or will be running their own sessions, during which they take a history from you and present to the GP. You will also be seen and treated by the GP. This is an important part of students' training, particularly in light of the national current GP recruitment crisis. You will always be told if a medical student is present or running the session and have the opportunity not to be seen by the student if you wish.
The practice strives to improve its performance by supporting professional development and learning for its staff and students, along with encouraging communication and feedback via the Strettondale Patients' Participation Group.
Our patients' needs are central to everything we do, hence our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. It also provides specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, together with a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues and links to other relevant medical organisations.
