  • Age 16 or 17?  You can now have your covid vaccination.  You can do this by attending a walk in clinic, details below:

    https://stwics.org.uk/our-priorities/covid-19-vaccination-programme/walk-in-clinic-times

    Please do not try and book through the practice, we cannot book covid vaccination appointments for you.  The national online booking service will only allow you to book if you are within 3 months of your 18th birthday, so please attend a walk in clinic if you are 16 or 17. 

    Or if you are going to the Telford Balloon Fiesta this weekend, Bob the Bus will be there too, so you can #GrabAJab there if you prefer!

     

    Covid Restriction Update:  13/7/21
    Throughout the pandemic we have strived to make the surgery as safe as possible for all our patients and staff. We will continue to do so going forward.

    From the 19th July nothing will change at the surgery - patients will need to still wear a mask, socially distance and use hand sanitiser in the surgery and staff will continue to wear PPE.  We do understand that it can be frustrating but we know that when people come to us they are sick and vulnerable (and some cannot receive the covid vaccinations due to medical reasons) so we feel it would be wrong to not take these small precautions that can protect people.  

    In terms of opening up, as many of you know, we have never been shut and in fact have consulted with much higher numbers of patients than we did pre-covid (face to face, by phone, by e consult and by video), not counting vaccinating 90% of the adult population twice in the last 6 months.

    The local community has come so far in trying to minimise the impact of Covid and we are sure you understand that we need to keep the surgery as safe for ALL patients as we can.

If a GP or another member of our health care team believes you need hospital treatment or specialist care elsewhere, they will refer you on to the appropriate specialist.

All referrals, except re-referrals, are sent through the Referral Assessment Service(RAS). The RAS team will contact you once they have received the referral to offer you the opportunity to select a Hospital of your choice for treatment. You will also be able to book your appointment at this time, if one is available; if there are no appointments available then you will be put onto that Hospital's waiting list and will be contacted directly by them in due course.

Your GP should give you a form explaining where your referral has gone and giving details of any action you need to take.

It is important that we have up to date contact details for you in order for this to happen. Could you please check that we have your home and mobile telephone numbers where applicable as well as your current address at the time of referral.
