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 and will be based over our current two sites in central Tewkesbury until we move into our purpose built new surgery next to Tewkesbury Hospital in 2016.
We are confident that our merger will bring many benefits going forward both front of house and behind the scenes.
We are able to offer appointments and deal with requests for all patients at both of our branches (although we would ask you to contact the branch that you are used to attending). In the interests of continuity we will continue to encourage patients to consult with the doctor they usually see and at the branch they are used to attending however there will be times (especially when an urgent appointment is required) where you may be asked to attend the alternative branch.
We have combined our two previous websites and are confident that our new website will provide clear and concise help and give our patients the information they require in an easy and convenient format. Our dedicated team are here to help and treat you across our two sites in Tewkesbury in a friendly and supportive manor. We offer a full and comprehensive range of general practice services - please ask if you wish to know something not on our website.
APOLOGIES FOR DELAYS
The Practice would like to make patients aware that the appointments system will be under additional pressure for six weeks from the end of August when Dr. Todd will be on sick leave following a back operation. We are very sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause in the waiting time for routine appointments and will be doing our best to increase capacity with locum GPs as and when needed. Your understanding at this time is much appreciated. As always, you will still be able to see a clinician for an urgent problem on the day.
SKYPE AND FACETIME CONSULTATIONS
Mythe Medical Practice is now pleased to be able to offer the option to patients of a Skype or FaceTime Consultation in place of a face-to-face appointment. This is particularly beneficial to patients that travel long distances from work to attend face-to-face appointments for relatively routine matters. For more information you can pick up a leaflet from our Reception Desk at either branch or download here :

New Health Centre
Work is now well on with our new Health Centre next to Tewkesbury Hospital. The work is expected to be completed in the middle of November with an opening date late December/early January and will house Mythe Medical Practice on the first floor and Church Street Surgery on the ground floor as well as a host of other services for our patients. PLEASE SEE ONGOING PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE BUILD UNDER FURTHER INFORMATION - NEW HEALTH CENTRE PROJECT
The practice buildings were designed to help people with disabilities. There is easy access for wheelchairs and none of the areas for patient use have steps. The toilets are easily accessed. A hearing loop is available for the hard of hearing. Please ask at reception.
Our main surgery (Watledge House) has a car park with some limited parking space found behind the surgery off Watledge Close. We would like to keep this available as far as possible for elderly and disabled patients. Please help us to do this by using nearby streets or car parks as much as possible.
Our branch surgery (Jesmond House) has no patient parking with the car park for use by doctors and staff only. However, there is ample parking in the Spring Gardens (Swimming Pool) Car Park and the Station Street Car Park, both less than 100 yards from the surgery premises. There is also street parking in the vicinity.
Your Accountable GP
By the 31st March 2016 Practices are required under the GMS Contract to allocate a named accountable GP to all patients, including children. This is purely an administrative exercise and does not change the way in which we operate or affect your ability to make an appointment or speak with any of the GPs in the Practice.
You will be allocated to the GP who you see most often when you visit the surgery for an appointment. Having a named GP does not prevent you seeing any other doctor in the Practice as your usual GP will not be available at all times and if your needs are urgent, you may wish to discuss them with an alternative Doctor.
New patients registering will be allocated at the point of registration. If you are aged over 75 or have taken part in the Avoiding Unplanned Admissions Scheme you will already have been allocated a named accountable GP and notified in writing - this GP will remain the same and will not change.
If you wish to be told the name of your accountable GP, please ask the Receptionists when you are next in the surgery.
