Welcome

AMP

At Abbey Medical Practice we aim to treat all our patients promptly with a high standard of personal care in complete confidence. 

We use our Practice website to inform our patients of any up to date information or resources available to them. We hope you take your time to browse our website, where you will find lots of useful information about the surgery and the serviced we offer

Abbey Medical Practice serves Evesham and the surrounding area.  Our team includes seven GPs, five Nurses, three Health Care Assistants as well as our team of dispensers, reception, secretarial and management staff.

Although the Practice is based in the centre of Evesham and has a significant number of patients within the town boundaries, we also cover many of the surrounding villages and therefore have a Practice area which combines both urban and rural elements.

We offer an on-site dispensing service (available to eligible patients) and we provide a delivery service where appropriate

The Practice list is currently open to patients wishing to register, whether they are new to the area or wish to transfer from another local Practice.  If you live within our practice area and would like to register with us, please complete one of our registration forms that are available on the website or from reception.

We welcome your feedback – please fill out a Friends and Family Test on the website.

Guidance note for Parent


Under current public health guidance we are currently not offering face to face appointments without patients being assessed first. Please read this carefully as the way we provide care has changed:
 
- If you need to speak to a GP we will book you in for an appointment on the telephone. If then the GP wishes to see you they will book you in themselves.
 
-If you have any symptoms of COVID-19 (fever or temperature, a new cough and/or loss of sense of taste or smell) or if you have been in contact with any known or suspected COVID-19 cases then please do not come to the surgery but telephone us for further advice.
 
-To assist us in managing risk, please attend alone unless you need to be accompanied by a carer.
 
- Any patients attending for a face to face appointment should ensure they wear a face covering to the appointment.
 
-Please be aware that you may need to wait outside the surgery as we are still unable to permit patients to wait in the waiting room. You are welcome to wait nearby in your car where possible, but if waiting near the surgery please maintain social distancing.
 
-Please contact the reception team when you arrive for your appointment so we know you are waiting. We will contact you to ask you to come into the surgery when the clinician is ready.
 
-Please be aware that you may be asked several times if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, and we ask for your patience and co-operation in this - this is for the safety of staff and other patients.
 
We are most grateful for your kind assistance.
 
Yours Sincerely
 
 
Abbey Medical Practice

If you are at home self-isolating due to Covid-19 symptoms, please arrange for a family member, friend or neighbour who do not have symptoms to collect your medications on your behalf.

Appointments

Following Public Health Guidance please note we are no longer offer face to face appointments without patients being triaged first.
