WELCOME TO STOKE ROAD SURGERY
Established in 1948 and serving a semi rural population of nearly 10,000 patients in Bishop's Cleeve and surrounding villages. We pride ourselves in providing excellent care for the whole family. We are a forward thinking practice offering on-line appointment booking and prescription requests, appointment reminders via text and early/late appointments. We are a training practice for GPs and nurses of the future, keeping up to date with modern medicine.
Many of the doctors have a special interest offering additional skills in Dermatology, Cardiology, Women's Health, Diabetes and Gastroenterology.
As well as our dedicated team of nurses, receptionists and admin staff, we have district nurses on site. To cope with the increasing local population, there are plans to expand the Surgery, which will benefit all our patients both old and new!

Named GP for patients over 75 years
GP practices are required to provide all their patients aged 75 and over with the name of a GP who will have overall responsibility for their care. This is their Named GP.
We have always had a system where all our registered patients (of any age) have a Named GP and this is the name which appears at the bottom of your prescriptions. This may be the GP you registered with when you first joined the surgery. It may be the GP you usually see.
Although your named GP will have overall responsibility for your care, please be reassured that you can continue to see ANY of our doctors and nurses and indeed we cannot guarantee you will be able to see your named GP whenever you want to.
However, your named GP will have overall responsibility for the care and support that Stoke Road Surgery provides to you.
If you would like to know who your named GP is, you can ask at reception, ask who your "usual" GP is recorded as, look at the bottom of your prescriptions or ask any member of staff you are seeing.
