station drive surgery

Our friendly GP Practice currently serves 9,000 patients. Dr Caron Morton and Dr David Mitchell work alongside a large clinical team, providing healthcare for people in Ludlow and the surrounding rural area. We are part of the South West Shropshire Primary Care Network (SW PCN).

We are very much part of our local community. Our clinicians are responsible for providing medical cover for Ludlow Hospital and we work closely alongside the community teams providing care at home for services such as IV antibiotics, full palliative care/palliative care at home, and supporting the out-of-hours Shropdoc sessions. The surgery also provides space for additional services such as Echocardiography, Hidden Hearing, and Specialised Pain Clinics.

We work closely with our Patients’ Group and with the local charity Hands Together Ludlow in supporting our community – visit the Hands Together Ludlow website to learn more

Station Drive Surgery is an accredited teaching Practice and we often have medical students, student doctors and GP registrars with us. This includes:

  • Year 5 (final year) and Year 3 Keele medical students
  • Foundation Year doctors, who are fully qualified registered doctors undertaking their 2-year postgraduate medical training
  • GP Registrars, who are fully qualified registered doctors and have completed their Foundation Years and have chosen to specialise in General Practice.
