With patient's needs at the heart of everything we do, our website has been designed to make it easy for you to gain instant access to the information you need. As well as specific practice details such as opening hours and how to register, you’ll find a wealth of useful pages covering a wide range of health issues along with links to other relevant medical organisations.

The practice operates from two separate sites in the Shropshire villages of Wem and Prees. Although in different locations they work together to serve the same catchment area.

Patient update

Dear patients, in response to recent guidance from NHS England we have updated our face covering policy:

In order to protect potentially vulnerable patients, our clinicians will continue to wear face masks when consulting face to face with patients and when in the waiting room. 

We politely request that patients also continue to wear face coverings in these circumstances. This is to ensure the safety of our staff who may themselves be vulnerable to covid infection. Clinicians may request that a patient wears a face mask where there they are dealing with respiratory illness or where covid infection is suspected.


We would like to inform our patients we do not prescribe medication for the following reasons - 

Hospital procedures

Dental procedures

Fear of flying
