We operate a full appointment system which combines a mixture of same day and pre-bookable appointments.
We do our best to accommodate requests for emergency appointments, but sometimes there are days where the demand for these is unpredictably high. In these cases we may ask if you could be seen the following day, or later in the week. We would therefore be grateful if you could consider booking an appointment in advance for anything which may not need attention immediately.
Appointments are available from 08:00 until 17:45 Monday to Friday and we now offer late night appointments up until 19:45 on a Tuesday. Shawbirch Medical Centre also participates in the Prime Minister's Challenge funding to provide access to appointments between 6pm and 8pm each weekday and between 8am and 6pm at weekends - for further details click here.
Please note our telephone lines are covered by Shropdoc between 18:00 – 08:30. Our lines open for appointment booking at 08:30 Monday to Friday.
To book an appointment telephone 01952 641555, call in person at our reception desk or book online via the link at the top of this page. New users to the online system are required to complete a simple registration.
In a number of cases it might be worth considering an appointment with a practice nurse rather than a doctor. Practice nurses are qualified to deal with many conditions and you may be seen more quickly. See the above minor ailments tab for more details.
If you cannot attend an appointment for any reason please inform us as soon as possible in order for us to give the slot to someone else.
