Living with Covid and removing of restrictions (24/02/2022)
Please note that rules for the NHS will not change.
Please continue to:
- Wear a face covering in the practice
- Practice social distancing
- Not attend the practice when you have Covid and/or have Covid Symptoms
- Tell us if you have Covid symptoms, or are Covid positive in advance of an appointment.
This way we can keep all patients and staff safe, especially those whose immune systems are compromised or weak, eg, cancer, chemotherapy patients.
We will continue to use telephone triage, bringing in those patients who need to be seen, home visits for those who are medically housebound and screening patients for Covid symptoms at the door.

Telford and Wrekin Council, together with a wide range of local partner organisations are launching a borough-wide “Ageing Well” consultation, asking residents over the age of 50 to share their views on the support they need to age well.
In Telford and Wrekin more people are living for longer. Between 2011 and 2021 the number of people in the borough aged 65+ increased by 35.7%. By 2031 there will be 50% more people aged over 85 years than there were in 2019. Living longer is a positive thing if you have good health and wellbeing and are financially secure.
The borough-wide survey covers a range of topics for residents over 50 to let the Council and partner organisations know what they need in later life in our borough. Views expressed in the survey will be used to create a more age-friendly Telford and Wrekin and improve the opportunities and information available for people and their families.
