Date set for new NHS 111 first policy launch in Shropshire

A new policy urging patients to call NHS 111 first rather than walk in to Shropshire’s A&E departments is due to launch on September 28, health chiefs have confirmed.

Patients with more serious issues will be given a dedicated time slot to visit the emergency departments, while those with less serious issues will be advised to see a GP or pharmacist.

It aims to help manage visitor numbers, but people will still be able to visit A&E without going through the scheme.

Totally plc (LON:TLY) addresses the challenges of increased demand on healthcare services by delivering high-quality planned, urgent and insourcing healthcare across the UK and Ireland.
