Noticeboard

  • 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.

Care Co-ordinator Scheme

Community & Care Co-ordination Scheme

In partnership with Severn Fields Medical Practice (and other practices in Shropshire) we are offering a new service to provide advice and support for patients who are carers.

Often people do not identify themselves as being carers however if you look after someone who is ill, frail, disabled or mentally ill we are here to help.

Our aim is to assist patients who are feeling isolated or lonely, or who are struggling to cope with life at home.  The Care Co-Ordinator can help to put in place support or find activities provided by the many voluntary and statutory services in your community.

Examples of the support available are as follows:-

Befriending service - a volunteer will call for a chat and a cup of tea.

Signposting to support services

Help with filing in forms

Transport to and from medical appointments - a volunteer will stay with you throughout your visit.

Help with collection of prescriptions and or pensions.

Help with the shopping

If you, or someone else feel that you might benefit from this service please visit your GP and ask to be referred to the Community & Care Co-ordinator

 

Whatever the problem, she will listen and do her best to help.
