"Shropdoc service is in good health
I would like to make a comment on the Shropdoc Service which I have been very impressed with over the past two weeks. The service and attention given by Drs McMurray and Lovell during their visits to my home has been fantastic. Being a senior citizen aged 91, I was very concerned with my state of health. The reassurance and medication given by these two doctors certainly improved my condition. Furthermore, the time taken to visit me was very quick and responsive. I feel some of the bad publicity on the NHS Shropdoc service is not warranted and not a true reflection of the excellent service I received during the past two weekends. Many thanks to all concerned....much appreciated.

"I had to call Shropdoc for my elderly neighbour last night, and what a great service! From initial call to triage through to visit from the Doctor, it was smooth and professional throughout and the whole episode took less than an hour amazing!"

"The doctor was very nice, very reassuring - could not fault him."

"My mother had a terminal illness and the service provided by Shropdoc was excellent and helped us immensely at the end of her life."

"This is the first time I have used Shropdoc and I was very impressed, firstly with the initial response and information gathering and then by the sister’s approach to me. Very professional, empathetic, giving confidence and good advice. Skillful questioning in a non-patronising way."

"People are all too keen to find ways to be critical and are quick to take that path. On the other hand, giving out bouquets seems these days to be a sign of weakness. Shropdoc, however, you’ve got one from me – well done and may you prosper"

"Thank you to Shropdoc for the service provided yesterday – both the call handler and the doctor ,who was brilliant, helpful and professional"

"I had to use Shropdoc whilst on holiday … I wanted to make contact to let you know how fantastic the service proved to be. From the initial call to the treatment by the doctors … everything was dealt with fantastically well. … Thank you very very much."

"I cannot thank your staff enough for the assistance they gave me at a time when I was feeling very vulnerable"

"The visiting doctor was helpful, supportive and comforting to my mother and our family during the last hours of her life"

"Patient is full of admiration for the work we do at Shropdoc"

"Thanks to both the triage doctor and call handler that he spoke to as they were both very helpful"
