When We Are Closed
When the surgery is closed the calls are forwarded to Shropdoc (a co-operative of local GPs). Shropdoc's direct telephone number is 0333 222 6655
They may give advice, arrange an appointment at the Shropdoc base or decide upon a home visit.

NHS 111 Service
NHS 111 has been introduced to make it easier for you to access local NHS healthcare services in England. You can call 111 when you need medical help fast but it’s not a 999 emergency. NHS 111 is a fast and easy way to get the right help, whatever the time.
NHS 111 is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Calls are free from landlines and mobile phones
Urgent Care Centre
Based at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, open every day 8 - 8.
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.
