We want your views…
on the proposed closure of our branch surgery site
‘Market Street Surgery’
We feel that the closure of our surgery will…
- Enable us to provide an equitable service to all our patients.
- Provide premises that are fit for modern general practice enabling us to deliver the highest level of quality healthcare to our patients.
Public consultation starts Friday 30th October 2015 to Tuesday 29th December 2015

FRIENDS & FAMILY
We would like to invite all our practice patients to complete the "Friends & Family" questionnaire and tell us how well we are doing as a practice but also what areas that our patients feel that we could improve in.
Your participation would be greatly appreciated and any completed questionnaires need to be handed in to the practice via reception at your earliest convenience.
Once we have collected the relevant data, the results will be shared with our patients.

NHS Health Checks
If you are aged 40 to 74 and do not already have diabetes, stroke, heart and kidney disease or are not being treated for high blood pressure or high cholesterol levels you are eligible for a free NHS Health Check. Even if you are feeling well, an NHS Health Check can help you to lower your chance of developing health problems in the future.
During your health check, which takes about 30 minutes, you’ll be asked some simple questions about your family history and any medication you’re taking. Your blood pressure and pulse will be checked and your height, weight, age, sex and ethnicity will be recorded. Your results will be discussed with you and you will be given personalised advice on how to lower your risk and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
If you were asked to have a blood test before your check, the results will also be discussed with you.
Out of Hours Number
Please note: The change of out-of-hours number to 111 is now active
General Practitioner Registrars
Our practice is a training practice. Our GP Registrars are fully qualified doctors and already have a great deal of experience. They are attached to our practice for six to twelve months. The Registrars usually become General Practitioners after completing their training.
The main entrances at Wordsley Green and Market Street are suitable for wheelchair access and both sites have special disabled toilet facilities within each building.
