Coronavirus - Changes to our services

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, some of our non-urgent services have been temporarily suspended and others are operating with reduced hours. Find out about service changes here.

Children's Constipation Service

This part of the website is being designed specifically for GPs, Clinical Commissioning groups, care homes and other care professionals who need the service referral information or access to Trust policies and care leaflets.

How does a GP refer in to this service?

GPs need to fill in the referral form in the Downloads and useful links section on this page. These forms can emailed to or sent by post to Coral House, 11 Longbow Close, Harlescott Lane, Shrewsbury, SY1 3G2.
Anyone who needs any help with the forms or wants to speak to a member of the team should telephone 01743 450855.

Types of patients regularly seen

Children aged 6 months to 18 years, with a diagnosis of idiopathic constipation who have been treated and monitored for a period of 6 months or more with little or no improvement.

We currently only have a service commissioned by Telford and Wrekin CCG therefore can only accept referrals for patients with a Telford & Wrekin GP.

Patients not seen by this service

  • Newborns, infants and children who have constipation with a known cause.
  • Children who have a primary diagnosis of soiling with no constipation would require a referral to the School Nurses/Health Visitors.
