Practice Background

Mount Pleasant Practice has been in continuous existence since before the NHS was formed. It is a Practice of Doctors working as an unlimited partnership. All our staff work together as a team with the aim of providing the highest possible level of care to the best medical standards for our patients’ benefit.

We provide General Medical Services on behalf of the NHS to a Practice population of over 8300 patients from both our main site in Chepstow and our branch site in Portskewett. Patients can choose appointments at either site and NHS Regulations allow us to dispense medicines (like a chemist) to those of our patients who meet the relevant criteria.

We sometimes allow other healthcare staff to observe what we do as part of their training, although we are not a Training Practice. When this happens, you will be asked to confirm that you are happy with this and you have the clear right to decline without it affecting your treatment or any other relationship with us.

We believe that patients are in charge of their own health and we will help you to make the right treatment decision for you by sharing the treatment options in a way which you can understand.

We aim to always treat our patients with dignity and with respect.

We will provide the same standard of care irrespective of race, colour, ethnic or national origin, religious belief, political opinion or affiliation, sex, marital status, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age or disability
