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.

News & events

There are always lots of things going on at Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust. Take a look at our news stories to see what we are up to at the moment.

If you have a media enquiry please contact the Communications Team by email shropcom.communications@nhs.net or on 01743 277658.

Please do not contact individual hospitals, wards or members of staff. We will respond as quickly as possible to all media enquiries.

Interviews, photography and filming

Interviews, photography or filming are not permitted on any Trust property without the express permission of the Communications Team. This is in order to protect the privacy of patients and staff, and to uphold one of the key principles of NHS healthcare and the NHS Constitution – respecting privacy and dignity.

All requests for interviews or photographs with patients or staff must be made through the Communications Team. We will always try to accommodate requests where appropriate and would appreciate sufficient time to do so.

Confidentiality

The Trust respects patient confidentiality and privacy and follows strict local and national rules in this respect.

We will not give out any information about a patient or member of staff unless we are given express permission from the individual or, in particular circumstances, their next of kin. Even if a patient has approached the media directly, we will not normally be able to respond unless the Trust has been able to gain the consent of the patient to do so.

Next review due: 1 September 2020
