About Us

A brief overview of Drayton Medical Practice

Drayton Medical Practice Mission Statement: To provide a high quality of patient care in a cost-effective manner, delivered by a trained and committed team.

Caring for the people of Market Drayton and the surrounding area since 1968 and before that at Poynton House, Shropshire Street, with Drs Gask, Haysey & Bremner.

We offer a wide range of facilities and skills in addition to maintaining the traditional values of family medicine.

We have an average list size of nearly 18,000 patients. Please see the Map, showing our practice area.

We moved to a new multipurpose building in October 2005. This will accommodate us and our services for many years to come.

We share the facility with a Physiotherapy Department, a Dental Department and a Pharmacy, (we are not a dispensing practice) and the various other Health Care Professionals detailed on this Web-Site.

In August 2008 we became a training practice; meaning we will be teaching GP Registrars at the practice, please see here for further details on this.

Our Health Partnership

In 2017 Drayton Medical Practice and several other Shropshire Practices joined Our Health Partnership.

Our Health Partnership was set up by local GPs who are passionate about providing high quality primary care and using their time and skills effectively to benefit patients.

We’re currently a GP partnership of 38 practices with 45 surgeries. 186 GP partners and 50 salaried GPs in Our Health Partnership serving around 330,000 patients in Birmingham, Sutton Coldfield and Shropshire.

The partnership offers a shared administrative and management structure, cutting down the time doctors have to spend on admin. It opens up economies of scale to get the best value from budgets. It has the resources to develop innovative services and effective partnerships with local hospitals and care services. And it can access new funding streams that are only available to large GP organisations.

That means more choices and a quality service for patients, a secure future for the local surgeries they rely on, security and job satisfaction for our committed and capable doctors and practice staff.
