Welcome To The Practice

We are a six-doctor non-limited partnership situated in the town centre of Shrewsbury, the county town of Shropshire. The surgery is conveniently situated close to the town's bus station and large town centre car parks.

Our surgery was purpose-built in 1987 and contains WCs and access via a ramp for the disabled. The practice covers the whole of Shrewsbury and normally accepts patients who live within a three-mile radius of the surgery. The partners believe in providing a full range of family care and each doctor looks after all aspects of a patient's health. Whilst you are free to consult any doctor in the practice, you are encouraged to continue to see the same doctor if you are returning with the same problem.

Following our inspection by the Care Quality Commission on 19 November 2014, we are delighted to inform everyone that we received a rating of ‘GOOD’ in all areas, which is an overall rating of ‘GOOD’.

If you would like to see a copy of the report please ask at reception or click here to visit our section on the CQC website.

We would like to thank our staff, patients and their carers for all of the hard work and support with achieving this great result.

Drs, Clesham, Crosland, Harwood, Hodson, Lovett, Rwezaura.

To help us deal with your enquiries efficiently, please try to use the correct telephone number. The telephones are at their busiest in the mornings, especially Mondays. There are several incoming telephone lines which cannot all be answered at once, so please be patient if your call is not answered immediately.

Surgery Times

The surgery is open Monday to Friday 8.30am to 6.00pm by appointment only. We close early on some Thursday afternoons for training purposes. With effect from 1 December 2015 we will be part of a network of GP Practices offering extended hours for routine appointments as part of the Prime Minister's Challenge Fund - click here for more information.

Riverside Support Group

Riverside Support Group is a group of patients of the practice who act as a link between the practice and you, the patient. Its aim is to help us to provide a better service to meet your needs. The support group meets regularly and also holds a number of social events throughout the year. New members are very welcome.

If you are interested in further information or wish to join the Support Group, please contact Vicky Davies, Office Manager, here at the surgery via Email: vicky.davies@nhs.net or by telephone: 01743 352371 and she will be pleased to help by putting you in touch with either the Chairman, Colin Pope, or the Secretary, Mike Jones. 

Car Parking

Regrettably, we do not have a car park for patients. The nearest car parks to the surgery are at Frankwell or Raven Meadows. The main town bus station is only a few minutes' walk from the surgery.
