GP Practices across Telford and Wrekin, including Shawbirch Medical Practice, are now providing extended hours services allowing patients to be able to see a local GP, Nurse or other Healthcare Professional when they need to, including in the evenings and at weekends.
Appointments are available at the Medical Centre for registered patients on Tuesday evening until 8pm. In addition to appointments with a GP, patients can also book appointments with a nurse.
Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group ("CCG") has commissioned access to pre-bookable and same-day appointments for all patients at surgeries within Telford & Wrekin on weekday evenings between 6.30pm and 8pm, and between 8am and 8pm at weekends and on a Bank Holiday. This Extended Access service (revised from 16 September 2019) operates on a hub basis from the following surgeries:
Lawley: Evenings, Monday to Friday between 6.30pm and 8pm
Malinslee: Saturday, Sunday and Bank Holidays between 8am and 8pm
Stirchley: Evenings, Tuesday to Thursday between 6.30pm and 8pm, and on Saturday between 8am and 2pm.
Wellington: Monday evenings between 6.30pm and 8pm, and Sunday between 8am and 8pm
Our telephone system will switch automatically to the Extended Access service call centre at 6:30 pm each weekday and will revert to the NHS 111 service at 8:00pm. It will also divert calls to the Extended Access service call centre between 8am and 8pm at the weekend and on bank holidays. The call centre will deal with all patient appointment enquiries and will direct patients to appropriate appointments with a GP or other medical professional at one of the hubs listed above.
At present all requests for Extended Access appointments have to made by telephone or face to face at our reception. On line booking is not currently available on our digital systems.
All appointments are subject to availability.
