When We Are Closed
The CCG has commissioned an out-of-hours service with Shropdoc. Outside of normal working hours an answer phone message will operate on our phone system with the contact number which is also shown below.
Shropshire Doctors Co-operative Ltd (Shropdoc) provides urgent medical services for patients when their own surgery is closed and whose needs cannot safely wait until the surgery is next open, i.e. evenings, weekends and bank holidays.
Shropdoc is registered, and therefore licenced to provide services, by the Care Quality Commission (Provider ID:1-199795171).
