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, rated as 'OUTSTANDING' by the CQC and based in a new purpose built medical centre opposite Tewkesbury Hospital.
Our dedicated team is here to help and treat you in a friendly and supportive manner. We offer a full and comprehensive range of general practice services.

Mythe Medical Practice at The Devereux Centre
We have now been situated at The Devereux Centre since March 2017. There is accessible parking available for patients at the new Centre and a drop off point right outside the front door. However, all other parking is allocated to the Doctors and Staff of Mythe Medical Practice and Church Street Medical. There is a car park at Rails Meadow (on Howells Road) just behind The Devereux Centre.

The national Survey results from NHS England for January to March 2018 are now available online. These are collected from a random sample of patients covering a wide range of questions about how you rate our service. We are very pleased to report an excellent response - to access the Survey please go to :

Due to circumstances beyond our control the Flu Vaccine for the Over 65s is in very short supply, with additional stock not being available until November. We do, however, have plenty of stock of the standard vaccination so those patients over the age of 65 that do not wish to wait can have the standard vaccination now and then return in November to top up with the specific Over 65s vaccine. We apologise for any inconvenience.
We are going all out this year to make it even easier for you to get your flu vaccination carried out by the Practice - if you are eligible we will already have ordered a flu vaccine on your behalf. These are the ways that Mythe Medical Practice is offering you an opportunity to have your vaccine :

OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATIONS
NHS England has issued guidance to help reduce the prescribing of over the counter (OTC) medicines for minor and short-term health concerns which could save the NHS millions of pounds a year and encourage people to self-care. The Practice has produced a leaflet which explains all about these changes - you can download from the link below or pick up a copy when you visit us.
INNOVATIVE NEW PROJECT FOR TEWKESBURY
We are pleased to announce that we have two new members on the Practice Team - Paramedics Andy Grant and Cairen Stedman are working with both Mythe Medical Practice and Church Street Medical as part of a new project which is being replicated across the county. Andy and Cairen are extremely experienced Specialist Paramedics who are now working in the community and supporting home visits with supervision and oversight of the existing GP Team.

We hope that our patients will find this increase in access helpful particularly those people who need to book appointments outside of normal working hours.
