Donations and Refurbishments
Thank you to everyone who has made a donation to the practice in the past. Over the last year or so we have been busy making major changes in the surgery by upgrading the clinical rooms and more recently upgrading the toilets. We have plans to carry on the improvemnts to include the rest of the surgery so please bear with us while this work continues. Thank you for your patience and support.
GP Extended Opening Hours
A new service has been set up to enable patients to make a routine appointment to see a GP or nurse in the evening between 6 - 8 pm and at the weekends. A network of Shropshire practices are offering this service. If you would like to book a routine appointment for these times please ring the surgery on 01743 891401. Please note this is not for urgent medical advice when we are closed; this new service is for routine appointments. Please click here for more information about this service.
Call NHS 111 from 17th July
From Tuesday 17 July 2018, patients across Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire who need urgent out-of-hours medical help or advice will need to call 111.
The NHS 111 service will replace the current out-of-hours GP telephone access service provided by Shropdoc in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin in line with national policy to provide a consistent, integrated approach to urgent care; but any patients that need to see a clinician out-of-hours will still be seen by a local GP or other appropriate clinician.
