We have recently installed a new telephone system which is unfortunately experiencing some teething problems. We are aware of the difficulties and are working hard with the telephone supplier to resolve these issues.
We are very sorry for the inconvenience caused and thank you for your patience.

Stop Smoking and Stop Smoking in pregnancy.
Through our Pin Point for Health service, Radbrook Green Surgery provides free NHS Stop Smoking and Stop Smoking in Pregnancy support to residents in Shropshire. Smokers wishing to quit are four times as likely to succeed through an NHS support scheme as compared with attempting to quit on their own.
What to do next.........
If you've made the decision to quit and are unsure where to go to get the support and guidance you need, don't worry; your local NHS Stop Smoking Service is there to help. For all the confidential help and advice you need to quit smoking call your local Stop Smoking Service on 0844 4069 923 or text 'QUIT' to 80800.
You will be able to secure a stop smoking support appointment with either Emma Fewtrell, Sandra Hoof, Heidi Pritchard or Marta Szalpuk at our surgery.

Out of Hours
In an emergency, when the surgery is closed in the evenings and weekends, a message is left on our surgery telephone to ring ‘SHROPDOC’ on 08444 06 8888.
If you have had x-rays or blood tests etc., you may enquire about the result without seeing the doctor. All results are screened by the doctor and it is your responsibility to contact the Surgery for your results 3 or 4 days after the specimen has been sent to the laboratory
Home visits are available to the housebound and to those too ill to come to the Surgery. If a visit is required on the same day, please try to contact the Surgery before 10.30 a.m. A doctor will usually ring you prior to visiting.
Free Prescriptions for Cancer Patients
People being treated for cancer will be eligible for free prescriptions from 1st April 2009 and can apply for free prescriptions from today.
The new scheme, announced by the Prime Minister in September last year, abolishes NHS prescription charges for everyone undergoing treatment for cancer, the effects of cancer, or the effects of cancer treatment.
All cancer patients are entitled to apply for a 5-year exemption certificate, which will entitle them to all their NHS prescriptions free of charge, not just those relating to cancer. The certificate can be renewed as many times as necessary and will not have to be returned if the patient’s condition changes.
Patients should contact their doctor to apply for exemptions.
