The GP Patient Survey
The GP Patient Survey is an independent survey run by Ipsos MORI on behalf of NHS England. The survey is sent out to over two million people across the UK. The results show how people feel about their GP practice. Here is a link to our results for 2021:-
We would like to thank all patients who took the time to complete & return the questionnaires.
Important Update 19th July 2021:
As from 19.7.21 Cambrian Medical Centre will continue to follow national guidelines & ask all patients and visitors to wear a mask & social distance when in the building. This is for the safety of patients and staff. Many thanks for your cooperation in this matter.
Important Update 17th May 2021:
As a practice we are aware of the communication from NHSE and media this morning regarding the opening up of GP receptions and appointments as of Monday 17th May. We are reviewing how we can maximise patient access, whilst maintaining safety for patients and staff safely as guidance changes.
Cambrian Medical Centre have continued to work and support patients throughout the whole of the pandemic and have responded to more calls from patients throughout the whole of the pandemic and responding to unprecedented levels of demand. In the period March and April 2021 alone we have dealt with more calls than in any other period on record, and as a practice will continue to meet the needs of our patients as best we can, whilst continuing to support the COVID Vaccination program.
In the short term we will continue to limit access to the premises, and offer a triage first service in order to ensure patients are treated in the most appropriate way and will continue to offer remote consultations and appropriate face to face appointments until a safety review is completed.
We can confirm that face to face appointments HAVE continued throughout the whole of the pandemic, however we reinforce that this is following a triage first service in order to maintain the best interests of both patients and staff.

- Important Car Park Update

20/03/2020 - The POD now have an email address you can request your prescriptions from:- It is firstname.lastname@example.org
18/03/2020 - The Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin CCG’s Prescription Ordering Direct (POD) service has been experiencing a huge increase in demand. For example, on Monday the Telford and Wrekin POD service received more than 15,000 calls compared to the usual number of just over 2,000.
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.
