Test, Trace & Self-Isolate Payment

Administering £500 test and trace support payments for people that were told to self-isolate due to Covid-19

We’ve broadened criteria for the £500 discretionary Test and Trace self-isolation payment, for applicants suffering financial hardship that don’t meet the main national scheme’s criteria. The scheme has also now been extended to include parents and guardians of a child or young person who has been told to self-isolate, where the parent or guardian meet the criteria.

The Vaccination – A focus on Fertility, Pregnancy and Maternity

Come join the conversation on the 4th March 2021 at 12:00 to 13:30pm.


This webinar will be an engaging conversation with BBC contributor Dr Nighat Arif. It will be a safe space to ask questions or share your concerns regarding the vaccination and fertility, or anything related to women’s health. Everyone is welcome to join the conversation.


Roll out of rapid testing - COVID-19

Coronavirus: Shropshire pharmacies to offer rapid testing for essential workers

Essential workers without Covid-19 symptoms can now book a rapid test at a number of pharmacies in Shropshire – allowing greater access to testing in some of our more rural areas of the county.

These tests are available for people who cannot work from home, who live or work in Shropshire and who do not have any symptoms of Covid-19.  Tests can be booked online using https://www.1centralhealth.co.uk/shropshirelft

Free vaccination shuttle bus service to Severn Fields Medical Practice

Residents who have their COVID-19 vaccination booked at Severn Fields Medical Practice will now be able to access a free shuttle bus service.

Last week saw the launch of the free shuttle service to the new Shrewsbury Vaccination Centre at Shrewsbury Sports Village (Bowls Centre) on Sundorne Road.

The service will also take passengers attending the adjacent Severn Fields Medical Practice, and passengers can walk the short distance from the bus stop on the Shrewsbury Sport Village site to Severn Fields Medical Practice.

Call for people aged 70 and over to contact NHS for a COVID jab.

If we could reinforce that people should contact the National Booking System rather than their GP this would be helpful.
