Coronavirus - Changes to our services

As part of our response to the Coronavirus pandemic, some of our non-urgent services have been temporarily suspended and others are operating with reduced hours. This is to allow us to redeploy staff to where they are most needed across our Trust and the NHS.

Health Assessments (DAART)

The service is provided to adults (over 18s) living in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin or other areas served by Shropshire Community Health Trust, including some areas of mid-Wales.
