Concierge Medical the Cotswolds leading private General Practice entered a team into The Shakespeare Hospice annual Stratford-upon-Avon Dragon Boat Race.  Supporting the return of the much-anticipated dragon boat race to the river Avon, the team, took part in the charity event on the River Avon on Sunday, 19th September. The event raised more than £25,000 for the charity which supports people with life-limiting illnesses and their families in Stratford-upon-Avon and the north Cotswolds.


Our team, ‘Doctors Orders’ comprised of practice management, doctors, nurses, admin and accounts teams, family and friends from Full Potential Therapy, Topside Pharmacy and Liam Harrison, our sponsored winning conditional jockey. The crew of 17 people took part in three races of about 250m paddling in unison to their drummers beat.  A first for our inexperienced team, we didn’t make the final but have declared they will be back with vigour next year to improve on our position.

Kat Carrick, Managing Partner said: “Despite the wet start to the day, our team were enthusiastic, motivated, and tenacious. It was our first dragon boat race and despite missing out on the final it has been a huge success offering a fun team building experience for our hard-working team.  There was an amazing atmosphere as Stratford town spectators cheered us on. We are proud to have been able to support the local charity achieve their fundraising goals. A brilliant day out for all of the family.”

“Thank you to everyone that took part and thank you to everyone that has sponsored us.”

Founded in 2013, Concierge Medical Practice has progressed to become a national award-winning private General Practice, providing the best healthcare to individual clients and businesses throughout Cotswolds, Warwickshire, Worcestershire, and Oxfordshire.

Our members have a named private doctor, providing on-going continuity of care. Our list size is kept small to guarantee availability and quality. We are a home-visiting practice, so all consultations with the private doctor are at our member’s home or office (or by phone, video, text etc). Our private doctors are readily contactable for home visits, remote consultations, advice and support. We have a strong network of secondary care and allied health professionals who complement our general practice services and whom we can readily access. All our private doctors are full time employees of Concierge Medical. They are all experienced GPs and have chosen to work as Concierge doctors as they understand and value the benefits of a strong patient-doctor relationship.

Concierge Medical is not tied to specific hospitals, insurers, or conventional ways of working. Our only concern is for our clients and their health and wellbeing.

Our team of private doctors pride themselves on offering the highest quality of care to our members. Getting access to medical care at a time that is convenient for you is essential for your health and wellbeing. Our private doctors always have time for our members.
