Shropdoc expands in Powys to welcome Presteigne Medical Centre to the team
Staff and patients at a Powys medical practice were today (July 3rd) welcomed into the Shropdoc family as the Organisation proudly expanded its presence in the county.
Shropshire Doctors’ Cooperative Limited (Shropdoc) has been providing quality healthcare to the communities of Powys for more than 20 years. The not-for-profit social enterprise will now provide primary medical services for the patients of Presteigne Medical Centre.
Shropdoc CEO Daniel Robinson said: “We are delighted to welcome Presteigne Medical Centre to the Shropdoc family.
“This venture is a natural fit for our organisation, as we share a common commitment to providing high-quality, accessible healthcare to everyone in our community.
“All of the Presteigne team bring a wealth of experience, knowledge and expertise and will, importantly, continue to provide stability and access to primary care for our patients in Presteigne and surrounding areas.
“We are excited to work with the team at the practice to build on their strong foundation and create an even better healthcare experience for our patients.”
GP services provided by Presteigne Medical Centre will continue uninterrupted as Shropdoc works closely with key stakeholders to deliver a broad range of engagement activities in the coming weeks and months.
Dr Duncan Johnson, GP at Presteigne Medical Centre, said: “The staff at Presteigne are delighted to be working with Shropdoc and anticipate this change will result in a long-term solution to enable us to maintain and improve medical services locally.”
Shropdoc provides a range of urgent and primary healthcare services across England and Wales.
The organisation was founded in 1996 and has a proud and enduring history of working with Powys Communities, traditionally through the provision of the GP Out of Hours Service, to deliver high-quality health and care outcomes.
Dr Simon Chapple, Shropdoc Medical Director, adds: “We are really looking forward to working with staff at Presteigne Medical Centre and our patients to ensure we meet the needs of the local community.
“We are also excited at the prospect of working with health and social care providers more widely in Radnorshire to co-develop healthcare pathways for patients and their families.”Back to all news
