We are open and here to help you 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, how you contact us is a little different at the moment.  This is to limit face to face contact where possible and help stop the spread of Coronavirus.

We are open and if you need to see a GP, please ring us on 01746 767121. 

Face to face appointments are available to all patients, but you will be asked to discuss your conditions over the phone or online first to assess what would be most appropriate for you.

In addition to face to face consultations we are where appropriate offering consultation over the phone or online.  This can be a convenient and flexible way to receive healthcare .

Please do not call for general advice about COVID-19, this information is readily available on the Public Health England website and changes frequently.

 

If you think you have COVID-19 DO NOT come to the Medical Practice, you should ring 119 to book a test or visit 111 online for advice on what to do.  If you think you have COVID-19 and need medical attention ring 111 or 999 if it becomes an emergency.

For up-to-date information on the outbreak of COVID-19 coronavirus, including the current situation in the UK and information about the virus and its symptoms visit the Public Health England website.

Coronavirus Vaccination

In line with Government guidance we are currently inviting the clinically high risk in Group 6, those aged 16 - 64 with underlying health conditions which put them at higher risk of serious disease and mortality.  This is large group and we will invite those most vulnerable first.

Those patients who feel they should be considered a carer, please contact Shropshire Council to be assessed for eligibility, Shropshire Carers Team 01743 341995 or email shropshire.carers@shropshire.gov.uk

If you are over 65 and have online access you can book your appointment online.  Appointments booked online for those who are under 65 will automatically be cancelled without notification.

You can also ring the practice and select Option 0 to speak with our vaccination booking team.

Please be assurred that when you do become eligible we will contact you via text message, telephone or letter.

Anyone that is eligible due to their occupation should contact a local vaccination centre as we will concentrate on clinical need.

Second Coronavirus vaccinations

We understand that you are eager for information regarding your second COVID19 vaccination.  We will start second vaccinations from week commencing 1st March and anyone who has had a first dose will be called in turn to receive their second vaccine within the advised 12 week period.  Second doses will be given at the same venue as your first, to ensure vaccine timing, delivery and supplies are maintained. 

Please be assured that we will continue to provide first vaccinations and eligible patients will be called in due course according to government guidelines.  From this point General Practice will be focusing on vaccinating those from Group 6 (those with underlying conditions aged 16-64) whilst the National Booking Centre and larger hubs will focus on those in Group 5 (ages 65-69).  Due to limited capacity some patients will be contacted directly by the National Booking Centre and offered vaccines at other locations.

Please do not contact the surgery to book an appointment unless you have been asked to do so.

We are working tirelessly to deliver the vaccine and appreciate you patients and understanding during this difficult and challenging time.
