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

What is a Housing Needs Survey?

The Housing Needs Survey is usually a 6-week-long survey to determine hidden housing need in every individual parish (or group of parishes, where the parishes are smaller) across Shropshire.
The information we collect will feed directly into Shropshire Council’s planning policy and will help to determine the type, scale and location of future homes, to ensure we are providing the right kind of housing and support where it’s needed most.
