Please find below the latest 111 & GP Out of Hours Services Bulletin from Powys Teaching Health Board. These bulletins aim to inform and engage local stakeholders in the development of 111 and GP Out of Hours Services in Powys.
This latest edition re-confirms the announcement last month that Shropdoc continues to be the provider of GP Out of Hours for the majority of Powys* , and that we are continuing with our plans to implement the NHS 111 Wales telephone number later this year. (*the exception is the Ystradgynlais area where NHS 111 Wales is already in place and the GP Out of Hours service is provided by Abertawe Bro Morgannwg University Health Board).
You may be aware that there has recently been the switchover in Shropshire from the Shropdoc number to the NHS 111 England telephone number. Please do let us know if you pick up any issues or concerns from Powys residents regarding this switchover so that we can build their feedback into our local planning.
