Welcome to Oakengates Medical Practice, where your care matters.
Due to the retirement of Dr D G F Northern and Dr K Kerr taking Maternity leave we are currently two doctors down. This may create some difficulties in the short term for our patients getting an appointment.
We are trying to address this problem by offering appointments with our nurse practitioner, for patients with minor ailments and arranging locum cover. We are in the process of recruiting a new GP and we will keep you updated on the progress in due course.
We have a new nurse practitioner starting week commencing 13th May which should help ease the situation. Please click on the link below for nurse practitioner to see the services they offer.
We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause you and thank you for your co-operation.

There is also a branch surgery at Highfield Clinic, Waterloo Road, Hadley Hollow, Telford, TF1 5NX which may be more convenient for you to attend.
Please note the practice DOES NOT OPERATE A ‘DROP IN’ CLINIC
If you are unable to book a routine appointment and have a Medical Emergency for the same day, between 8.30am and 6pm, you will be offered either a telephone or face to face appointment with the Nurse Practitioner or the Duty Doctor. In the event that the Duty Doctor appointments are booked you may be invited by the Nurse Practitioner to sit and wait after surgery.
Please consider carefully whether you feel your medical problem requires same day attention
Out of Hours
When the surgery is closed Shropdoc will provide cover for the surgery. This service is for urgent medical care, if you feel your condition is life threatening phone 999 for the ambulance service.
Between the hours of 18:00 - 08.30 - Monday – Friday, weekends and bank holidays telephone 08444 068888, which is Shropshire Doctors’ Co-operative (SHROPDOC).
Please only call if you feel that the problem cannot wait until the next doctor’s surgery.
We aim to provide a personal service, with continuity of care, for the Oakengates and wider Telford & Wrekin community.
