When We Are Closed
GP Extended Opening Hours - 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 within your community 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. Call now to book a routine appointment call 0333 222 6649
Nights and Weekends - Telephone 0333 222 66 55. Medical attention for emergencies outside surgery hours is provided by Shropdoc who can be contacted out of hours on the above number. Although a General Practitioner will always be available, they may not be known to you.
Primary Care Centres have been set up to provide a properly equipped place, similar to a doctor's surgery. When you ring out-of-hours you will speak to a trained nurse who can give advice or arrange for a doctor to contact you. Alternatively, the nurse can arrange for you to be seen at the Primary Care Centre, or a home visit may be arranged for you if you are not fit enough to travel.
Patients requiring stitches or with suspected broken bones are advised to go directly to the Accident and Emergency Department at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
Out-of-hours services are generally busy so please think carefully before asking to see a doctor and only do so if you genuinely cannot wait until the surgery re-opens.
In a genuine emergency you should call 999. Chest pains and / or shortness of breath constitute an emergency.
