Patients in Stow-on-the-Wold are set to benefit from a fantastic new healthcare facility following the opening of the town’s long-awaited new GP surgery development on Monday 28 October 2019.

The highly anticipated surgery on Maugersbury Road brings fresh, modern, spacious facilities to the town, with seven GP consulting rooms, four nurse consulting rooms, two phlebotomy rooms, an area for minor procedures and a further two consulting rooms specifically for trainee GPs all on the ground floor.

First-rate office facilities for reception and administration staff are on the lower ground floor along with a number of meeting rooms.

Everything has been designed with people who have disabilities and dementia in mind, with signage and access ensuring the area is easy to navigate.  There is also plenty of parking, with 46 spaces available for patients and staff.

Dr Paul Sherringham, Senior Partner at Stow Surgery said:

“We are extremely grateful to the CCG for their steadfast support on this project and to the development team and ASSURA for enabling us to realise the scheme.

We are also particularly grateful to our community of patients for their forbearance over many years and for the very tangible contributions they have made to help us create premises that will enable us to offer first-rate care to our patients and provide high quality services for years to come.”

Helen Goodey, Director of Primary Care at NHS Gloucestershire Clinical Commissioning Group, said:

“This is a fabulous development for Stow-on-the-Wold, providing modern facilities where patients can be diagnosed and treated safely and effectively for many years to come.”

Ashley Seymour, Assura’s Senior Development Manager, said:

“Successful delivery of this project has required close collaboration with the practice team and the CCG, and we are delighted with the end result.

The building fits seamlessly into the Cotswolds landscape and we hope that patients and staff alike enjoy the modern, uplifting environment for many years.”

Keith Cuthbert, Chairman of Friends of Stow Surgery (FOSS), the local Patient Participation Group, said:

“We are delighted that after many years of waiting, this new surgery will offer the patients of Stow and surrounding villages a first-class facility in all aspects of health care.

Thanks to the generous support of many people, we are pleased that FOSS has been able to fund some of the equipment required for this new facility.”
