We are an eight-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.
Riverside Medical Practice are pleased to update you with regards to our routine Care Quality Commission inspection.
The Practice welcomed the CQC inspecting team into the Practice on Wednesday 19th November. We are delighted to report that no concerns or risks were identified in the 5 domains.
Our initial feedback from the inspecting team was overwhelmingly positive, and they commended us on the strong team at the practice.
We look forward to receiving our full report and grading over the next couple of months.
