Other Services

Child Health

The practice provides a full immunisation service, by appointment only.

The Services for Children & Young People at Longbow House, Shrewsbury, will automatically send a letter to you when your child is due to attend the child immunisation clinic, inviting you to make an appointment with us.

Please always bring your child's Red Record Book with you. If your child cannot attend their appointment, please let the surgery know, as well as the telephone number on your letter, as soon as possible, so that the cancellation may be offered to another patient.
