Our Historylogo

Stirchley Medical Practice was founded in 1973 to serve the three Telford New Town estates of Stirchley, Brookside and Randlay.

The founding partners, Dr Andrewes and Dr Chuter, had a radical vision of providing holistic care for the whole community out of one building. Instead of treating everything with pills, they gave people time to talk. They provided a broad mix of high quality services including:

  • specialist nurses
  • family services
  • counselling
  • social support

The practice gained a national reputation for excellence. Over the years scores of younger doctors came here to train as GPs, and many of them have never left.

The two-doctor practice moved from a converted house into the Health Centre in 1974. The building has had to undergo 3 major rebuilds and extensions, and now accommodates:

  • 10 doctors
  • practice nurses
  • health care assistants
  • health care administrators

as well as:

  • District Nurses
  • Health Visitors
  • a Pharmacy
  • the dental practice
  • and many visiting services

Despite the many changes in society and the NHS over the last 30 years, Stirchley Practice holds true to the founders’ vision of providing the best possible holistic care for the whole community.
