Prescription Volunteer Delivery Service

Wem and Prees Medical Practice are pleased to say that due to working in conjunction with local volunteers we are in a position to deliver prescriptions to the over 70's who normally use our dispensary in Prees.

 This service will operate Monday-Friday until further notice. Please do not contact the surgery to ask when delivery will arrive we will contact you by telephone to let you know that your prescription is on the way.

Thank you for your understanding as we try new ways of working to ensure we all stay safe in these unprecedented times. Without the support of the local volunteers this delivery service would not be possible.

On behalf of the Practice we would like to say thank you to the community for their help during this time


Blood Tests

Due to the current situation we are, at present, no longer conducting routine blood tests. We are still holding non routine Phlebotomy appointments at Wem. All patients will be screened by either a text message or a telephone call the day before your appointment and again before entering the premises. This is to ensure patient to patient safety.

We thank you for your understanding during this time.
