Shropshire’s only independent Private GP provider pass inspection with flying colours
The practice was inspected in May 2018, now the report has been published and it is pass for the Shropshire based company.
Special praise was given to the GP led management structure, citing “they had the experience, capability and integrity to ensure high quality care was delivered to patients”
Summerfield Healthcare started treating patients in March 2016. Its patients use SHC for private GP and procedures of limited clinical value which, due to budget restrictions the NHS can no longer provide.
These would include minor dermatology surgeries, thread vein treatments and vasectomies.
“The need for services hasn’t gone away, NHS doctors rightly are prioritising acute disease such as cancer treatments over non-life threatening procedures because of budget restrictions. If the NHS can’t, then patients will turn to the private sector”
The CQC regulate all medical practices, private or public, with a pass or fail. Failure means that the clinic has to close.

Due to the recently announced lockdown in England, Summerfield Healthcare is currently only able to offer a limited number of clinical services including:
For some services we continue to offer such as health checks and minor surgery we are now providing COVID-19 testing for all patients and Doctors. This is mandatory due to the proximity of the practitioner, the duration of the appointment and multiple clinicians also being involved in your treatment. An additional £10 will be included in the appointment fee at the point of payment to cover the cost of COVID testing, and your booking confirmation will reflect this requirement. This is not required for blood testing due to the short duration of appointments and reduced risk of exposure.
If you cannot find the service you are looking for or it is not available to book due to the lockdown, please enter your details below and the service you require and we will contact you when the service resumes. Please remember that all COVID testing services are continuing during lockdown.
