‘Help is available this May bank holiday’, say GPs in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin.

NHS 111 will be available to contact, and practices will be open across the county during normal opening times on Friday, 8 May - although you may be asked to attend a different practice if you need a face-to-face appointment.

Pharmacies will also be open between 2pm and 5pm, with some pharmacies planning to open for longer.

Residents are advised to check practice and pharmacy websites for opening times as well as specific arrangements for the May bank holiday.

Also open are Urgent Treatment Centres at the Whitchurch and Bridgnorth Minor Injury Units, which have been temporarily relocated from the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

Health leaders at the Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) are urging people not to hesitate to seek help if they have any health concerns.

Help is available either by calling NHS 111, free from any landline or mobile, by visiting 111.nhs.uk, or contacting your GP practice directly. People should only attend the premises if they have a pre-booked appointment.
