Eligible Patients will receive direct invites from NHS or the Practice in due course.
The Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Integrated Care System (ICS) declared a system critical incident on Tuesday 29 March 2022. This is in relation to increasing numbers of patients with covid in our hospitals and extremely high levels of staff sickness across our health and care system.
Both of these issues are having a knock-on effect on other NHS services including GP practices across the county. We are asking all patients to be aware of the exceptional demand we are currently facing, including our own staff sickness levels.
Our staff are working very hard to accommodate all patient needs. Minor ailments can be addressed via your local pharmacy, and our reception team can pre-book these appointments for you. Professionals across the county are doing everything they can to rapidly improve the position and apologise for any negative impact this may have on our patients.

Women's Health Survey
A Women’s Health Project Group is asking: How can we make it easier for women in Shropshire and Mid Wales to get advice on their health?
Figures show that women are not coming forwards for screening or asking for help with the menopause. A group made up of local NHS providers and patient representatives across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Mid Wales is trying to find out the reasons why.
A survey has been launched to ask the views of women on breast and cervical screening, as well as the menopause, and can be accessed here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/Women22
The results will be used to shape future women’s services in the area and we are therefore encouraging all women to take part.
The survey is the first of its kind in the area and takes approximately 15 minutes to complete. All information provided will be anonymous and the closing date for the survey is Monday 28 February 2022.
Once the survey results are collated they will be analysed and shared with NHS providers and patient representatives to see how improvements can be made.
For more information on the survey or paper copies please email: email@example.com or ring 01743 261000 ext. 2390.

We would like to remind people that there is absolutely no need to order your prescriptions earlier than usual, or order more than you need and stockpile. Patients should continue to order their prescriptions as normal, when they are due. We’re also seeing a knock-on effect at our local community pharmacies who are also under a lot of pressure.
We would like to thank all our patients for their cooperation during this time.
