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.

When We Are Closed

When the surgery is closed an answer phone message will give you a numbclosed_signer of who to call in cases on an emergency. 

 

Nights and Weekends - From Tuesday 17th July 2018, patients across 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 line with national policy. The purpose of this change is to provide a consistent integrated approach to urgent care out of hours.  If any patient needs to be seen by a clinician urgently before the practice re-opens they will continue to be seen by a local GP or other appropriate clinician. 

Depending on the situation the NHS 111 team can connect you to generalist and specialist nurses, GP or even a pharmacist and can arrange face to face appointments should these be needed. 

 

Please do not ask to see a doctor out of hours unless you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens. Remember to call 999 only in a life limiting emergency e.g. c hest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute etc.
