Avon Medical Centre - Stratford Doctors

Avon Medical Centre, 8 Romeo St, Stratford

We are a five doctor medical practice serving the community of Stratford and surrounding districts.

Our purpose is to provide a service which meets the needs of our patients for all aspects of health care for the whole person.  We offer a full range of high quality primary care for all ages and conditions, in a warm, friendly environment. Avon Medical Centre is a teaching practice and we regularly have registrars as part of our team.

We are part of the Stratford Health Centre building which has physiotherapy and x-ray facilities and the Stratford Medlab is conveniently located across the road.


Our standard appointment time is 15 minutes. We will always try to put you in with the doctor you are enrolled with. However, if you have an urgent problem or your usual doctor is unavailable, you may be offered an appointment with an alternative doctor in the practice.

If you request an urgent appointment you will first be triaged by a nurse over the phone and they will book you in to see a doctor.

We ask all of our patients to please plan ahead and book a week before for any routine appointments such as prescription renewals and check-ups. This keeps our urgent appointments available for those who really need them.

If you feel your appointment may be longer than normal please advise us in advance so we can book you a longer consultation. We also need to know if your appointment is for a medical, maternity check, or for more than one person.

Ask to speak with the nurse if you are unsure about the urgency of a problem or the need for an appointment.
