Survey of Preferences for Extended Hours appointments in South West Shropshire Primary Care Network
Tuesday, 10 May 2022
We would like to ask our patients when they would most like to access our services outside usual practice hours.
The NHS wants these extra appointments to be in the evening (for example 6.30pm – 8.00pm) and at the weekend.
However, there is a national shortage of GPs and practice staff and we need to make decisions carefully and in consultation with our patients. If your GP or practice nurse is working more hours outside of the usual surgery hours, you may find it is harder to see your preferred GP/nurse at other times.
Your feedback is very much appreciated and helps us to shape services to meet your needs.
The survey closes at midnight on Monday 20th June 2022.
One Health and Care
Did you know? From summer 2021, everyone’s health and social care records in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin will be available on the new integrated care record ‘One Health and Care’.
Completely confidential and secure, it’s designed to help doctors, nurses and other registered health and social care professionals directly involved in your care to make better, safer decisions.
The information that they will be able to see includes:
- Your name, date of birth, sex, address, telephone number, NHS number
- The name of your GP Practice and GP
- Medications, allergies, ongoing and historic conditions, immunisations and diagnoses
- Test results, hospital referrals, admissions, discharges and clinics attended
- Social and mental health information and care plans
Sensitive information such as attendance at sexual health clinics, fertility treatment records, and records relating to gender reassignment will not be included.
During summer 2021, all GP practices within Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin will have access to One Health and Care along with the following organisations:
- Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust
- Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust
- Shropshire Council (Social care)
- Telford & Wrekin Council (Social care)
- Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust

If you’re happy for your records to be available on One Health and Care to health and social care professionals, you don’t need to do anything. Alternatively, if you wish to object, you need to contact your GP Practice.
