Out of Hours cover is changing
From Tuesday 17 July 2018, patients across Telford & Wrekin and Shropshire who need urgent out-of-hours medical help or advice will no longer call Shropdoc. They will need to call 111.
The 111 service will replace the current out-of-hours GP telephone access service provided by Shropdoc in Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin.
There is also a new ‘ASK NHS’ app designed to improve 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.
Patients living in Wales should continue to use the Shropdoc number
Complaints about the new service should be directed to Telford and Wrekin CCG, NHS Telford and Wrekin, Halesfield 6, Telford TF7 4BF

There is apparently a rumour going around that we are merging with Madeley Medical Practice. This is categorically NOT the case and is, quite simply, untrue.
