NHS 111 service to take calls out-of-hours across Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire from 17 July 2018
From Tuesday 17 July 2018, patients across Telford and Wrekin and 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 Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin in line with national policy to provide a consistent, integrated approach to urgent care; but any patients that need to see a clinician out-of-hours will still be seen by a local GP or other appropriate clinician.
NHS 111 is much more than a helpline - if you're worried about an urgent medical concern, you can call 111 to speak to a fully trained adviser. Depending on the situation, the NHS 111 team can connect you to generalist and specialist nurses, or even a GP or pharmacist, and can arrange face-to-face appointments should you need one. It is free and available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
There is also a new ‘ASK NHS’ app that has been designed that provides improved access to NHS 111 and other local NHS services. Advice is delivered by the virtual clinician ‘Olivia’ and she takes you through the steps of the symptom checker which can result in the booking of a GP appointment, access to NHS choices, a call back from a clinical expert or access to self-care.
You can download the ‘Ask NHS’ app via Google Play (for Android phones) or Apple App Store (for iPhones). If you need more guidance on how to download the app please click here.
If you are a patient living in Wales you should continue to use the Shropdoc number
You may be aware that we have recently moved to an electronic prescription service (EPS) where your prescription is sent electronically to a pharmacy of your choice.
We are aware that some of our patients may have received marketing information from internet based pharmacy companies.
To ensure there is no confusion we would like to clarify that Cleobury Pharmacy which is owned by Dudley Taylor Pharmacies Ltd and is the one attached to our premises and they do not operate under any other name.
Disabled Access is through the main front entrance. The car park in front of the main entrance has 2 reserved disabled parking bays. All patient services are on the ground floor. If access proves difficult we are happy to consider any suggestions for improvement. We also have a portable induction loop for those hard of hearing. Please ask the receptionist on arrival at the surgery.
We have ample free parking and the main patient and visitor car park is located in front of the practice.
Please be aware that children are not supposed to play on the car park. This is a dangerous area and as most of our consulting rooms are on ground floor this can be a distraction for our clinicians. Parents are asked to remind their children not to play in this area.
GP Extended Opening Hours Clinics
We would like all patients in our community to be able to see a local GP or Nurse when they need to. We have set up a network of GP Practices across the region offering extended opening hours for pre-bookable and same day routine extended access appointments. The GP extended opening hours service operates between 6.00pm-8.00pm on weekdays and 9.00am- 1.00pm on weekends and allows patients to be seen within a network of GP Practices at a convenient time and location, depending on availability. The service is forecast to continue until 30th September 2018.
