Flu Season 2019
Our recent flu clinics and walk-in sessions have been extremely successful. As a result of this we have used all our flu vaccines for patients aged 65 and over. Vaccines will therefore be available at our below walk-in sessions -
Wem - Tuesday 16th October - 2pm - 6pm
Wem - Friday 19th October - 08:30am - 5pm - CANCELLED
Any eligible patient aged between 18-64 can book an appointment for your flu vaccine with a member of reception or attend one of the above walk-in sessions.
Due to the overwhelming success of the walk-in clinic held in Wem on 16th October we have had to cancel the session arranged for Friday 19th October. More walk-in clinics will become available in November once we receive delivery of more flu vaccines.
We now offer Extended Access at Wem & Prees Medical Practice, please take the time to read more about this in our patient leaflet under the 'Services' tab on our home page.

AVERAGE GP EARNINGS 2016-17
NHS England require that the net earnings of doctors engaged in the practice is publicised, and the required disclosure is shown below. However it should be noted that the prescribed method for calculating earnings is potentially misleading because it takes no account of how much time doctors spend working in the practice, and should not be used to form any judgement about GP earnings, nor to make any comparison with any other practice.
The average pay for GPs working in Wem Medical Practice in the last financial year 2016/2017 was £63,464 before tax and National Insurance. This is for 0 full time GPs, 8 part time GPs and 0 locum GPs who have worked in the practice for more than six months.
All practices are required to allocate a named, accountable GP to all patients, including children. As the practice operates a personalised list your registered GP is your named, accountable GP, who is responsible for the provision of your healthcare. Please ask your doctor, or the reception staff if you would like to know who your named GP is.
Please be aware that this does not affect your ability to make an appointment with any of the GPs in the practice of your choosing.
