Welcome to Mythe Medical Practice, Tewkesbury
Welcome to Mythe Medical Practice, a GP practice formed from the merger of Watledge Surgery and Jesmond House Practice. We are a friendly and approachable doctor, nursing and admin team, rated as 'OUTSTANDING' by the CQC and based in a new purpose built medical centre opposite Tewkesbury Hospital.
Our dedicated team is here to help and treat you in a friendly and supportive manner. We offer a full and comprehensive range of general practice services.
See link below to our Inspection Report.
Mythe Medical Practice at The Devereux Centre
We have now been situated at The Devereux Centre since March 2017. There is accessible parking available for patients at the new Centre and a drop off point right outside the front door. However, all other parking is allocated to the Doctors and Staff of Mythe Medical Practice and Church Street Medical. There is a car park at Rails Meadow (on Howells Road) just behind The Devereux Centre.
BANK HOLIDAY WEEKEND
The Practice will be closed from 18.30 hrs. on Friday 3rd May 2019 until 08.00 hrs. on Tuesday 7th May 2019. If you require a GP urgently during this time please telephone the surgery which will automatically transfer to the Out of Hours Service.
We recently informed patients that we had welcomed two new Partners, Dr. Mike Crisp and Dr. Caroline Butler. Sadly Dr. Paul Wainman has resigned from Mythe Medical Practice following a period of extended sick leave. We wish him well for the future and would like to assure his patients of continued excellent health care at the Practice. Some patients have, during Dr. Wainman's absence, moved across to another Partner, but for those patients that are still on his list, Dr. Butler will be taking over their medical care.
LATEST GP SURVEY RESULTS
The national Survey results from NHS England for January to March 2018 are now available online. These are collected from a random sample of patients covering a wide range of questions about how you rate our service. We are very pleased to report an excellent response - to access the Survey please go to :
OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS
NHS England has issued guidance to help reduce the prescribing of over the counter (OTC) medicines for minor and short-term health concerns which could save the NHS millions of pounds a year and encourage people to self-care. The Practice has produced a leaflet which explains all about these changes - you can download from the link below or pick up a copy when you visit us.
INNOVATIVE NEW PROJECT FOR TEWKESBURY
We are pleased to announce that we have two new members on the Practice Team - Paramedics Andy Grant and Cairen Stedman are working with both Mythe Medical Practice and Church Street Medical as part of a new project which is being replicated across the county. Andy and Cairen are extremely experienced Specialist Paramedics who are now working in the community and supporting home visits with supervision and oversight of the existing GP Team.

Appointments are pre-bookable but please note there is no telephone access to the surgeries after 6.30 p.m. Monday to Friday or at weekends when the countywide Out of Hours Service takes over. The Newent and Staunton practices will also be offering similar availability. We hope that our patients will find this increase in access helpful particularly those people who need to book appointments outside of normal working hours.
