Welcome to Riverside Medical Practice
We are a town centre based practice offering family health services to the population of Shrewsbury.
We are confident that our website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. It has been designed with the patient’s needs at the forefront of everything, from checking surgery times to letting us know what you think of us.
Our dedicated team are here to treat those minor ailments that occur as well as providing specialist management of long-term conditions and clinics covering a wide range of healthcare issues. The technology also means you can now do a lot of things from the comfort of your home such as order a repeat prescription or cancel an appointment.
Partners in Care
Once registered, patients and healthcare professionals work together to ensure the most appropriate care is provided. This partnership philosophy extends even further and our active patient group exists to make sure that patient needs and the practice offering are always heading in the same direction.
Access & Parking
Our surgery was purpose-built in 1987 and contains WCs and access via a ramp for the disabled
Regrettably, we do not have a car park for patients. The nearest car parks to the surgery are at Frankwell or Raven Meadows. The main town bus station is only a few minutes' walk from the surgery.
Please note all inbound and outbound calls from Riverside Medical Practice are recorded for training and monitoring purposes.
