Exciting Update on our New Heath Centre in Whitchurch

An update on our new Health Centre in Whitchurch
 
Dr Nick von Hirschberg, GP Partner at Churchmere Medical Group and Clinical Director of the North Shropshire Primary Care Network (PCN) said: “For many years the team at Churchmere and the North Shropshire Primary Care Network have been striving to provide high quality, sustainable care to our patients despite the huge challenges and demands upon General Practice.
 
“The new health centre at Pauls Moss will allow us to continue to provide our service from new purpose-built premises, offering scope to provide much more to our patients, depending on local need and appropriate funding. This will complement, and certainly not replace, our current service in Ellesmere with the aim to offer equitable care across North-East Shropshire.
 
“We are excited to see the new building taking shape and for us to settle into a new and more comfortable environment for patients and our dedicated staff.”
