Steve Hugh Award
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.
If you need urgent medical attention that will not wait until your own surgery is next open,
call 08444 06 88 88.
If your condition can not wait for 1½ hours this is likely to be an emergency
Please dial 999
