Church Stretton Medical Practice
There are reserved (marked) disabled parking spaces near the front of the Medical Centre in Easthope Road. Access to the building is provided by automatic doors and all our consultation rooms are on the ground floor. However some consultation rooms are quite small and if this is a problem for you please tell our receptionists when making your appointment. If you require any assistance, please ask any member of staff. A disabled toilet is provided.
This is available in the public pay and display car park opposite the medical centre.
Please do not park in the Ambulance bay at the front of the medical centre, this is for ambulances only
Disabled spaces unless you have a disabled person parking permit
Spaces at the side of the practice as these are for doctors and staff
Also please do not block the access to the side of the Medical Centre. The doctors need access to the road to attend emergency calls and the residents of St Dunstans Close require access to their homes.

Local GP practices working together to offer more convenient appointment times for patients
As from 1st October, 2018, we will be part of a network of practices (known as ‘hubs’) in Shropshire, working together to offer patients ‘Extended Access’ to pre-bookable appointments - in the evenings, at the weekend and during bank holidays.
Part of the national agenda by NHS England, Extended Access means patients will be able to make pre-bookable appointments to see a GP, practice nurse, or other qualified healthcare professional, at a time which may be more convenient for them.
In Shropshire, local practices will work together in a network of ‘hubs’ to provide this service. The ‘hubs’ will take turns to provide the Extended Access appointments to patients. This means patients could be offered an appointment at their own surgery or at a nearby practice in the local area (part of the hub). Patients will be advised about appointment location at time of booking, enabling them to make an informed choice about their where and when they access care.
Locally the pre-bookable appointments will be available as follows:
- Weekday evenings (Monday to Friday) between 6:30pm and 8:00pm (at a local area hub)
- Saturdays between 8:00am and 1:00pm (at a local area hub)
- Sundays and bank holidays between 8.30am and 12.30pm (at a single site in central Shrewsbury)
Arranging a pre-bookable evening, weekend or bank holiday appointment is easy to do - patients simply need to contact us, during normal opening hours, and speak to the practice receptionist or a member of the practice team who will be able to help. Appointments may not be with your registered GP but will be with a GP or other qualified healthcare professional.
Extended Access adds to the existing range of healthcare services already available in Shropshire to help patients, including pharmacists, NHS 111, the walk-in centre, minor injury units, and A&E (which is there 24/7 for life threatening serious emergencies only).
It is important to be aware of how long common conditions should take to clear up and always seek medical advice if you are unsure or if you feel it is an emergency.
Call 999 or go to A&E now if:
- you or someone you know needs immediate help
- you have seriously harmed yourself - for example, by taking a drug overdose
A mental health emergency should be taken as seriously as a medical emergency.
