From Tuesday, 17 July, 2018, patients across Shropshire who need urgent out-of-hours medical help or advice will need to call 111.
The NHS 111 service will replace the current out-of-hours telephone access service provided by Shropdoc in line with national policy to provide a consistent, integrated approach to urgent care; but any patients that need to see a clinician out-of-hours will still be seen by a local GP or other appropriate clinician.
In order to help us inform patients of the change we would like to ask for your support in displaying and sharing the following resources:
- Press release
- Display poster
- Digital PowerPoint slide
- Content for patient newsletters
- Web banner
- Website content
Patients in Wales should continue to use the Shropdoc number until NHS 111 is launched in Powys by the end of the year.
