Telford Patients First Group

Telford Patients First group is very keen to attract more members to strengthen the voice of Telford and Wrekin patients.

The group meets on the first Wednesday of each month, 3pm to 5pm, normally at Dawley House, TF4 2ES. The meetings are very informal, patients voices are heard and from the discussions, issues are taken forward. There are often speakers from various health organisations to update on potential changes or to discuss any problems raised with them.

Membership is open to individual patients and representatives drawn from the GP Patient Participation Groups (PPGs) within Telford & Wrekin.

Anyone interested in joining our patient group can email or call 07954 077199 or 07770 353685.

Help shape a new musculoskeletal (MSK) service for Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin at a patient focus group.

One of the big pieces of work already under way is to look at the pathway for patients needing care for musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions – ie health problems which affect the joints, bones and muscles. Together with MSK patients, GPs and specialist clinicians, a plan has been developed to transform local MSK services and are currently commissioning a new integrated MSK service, believing these will improve outcomes and experience of healthcare for all people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin.

There will be two focus groups, one in Telford & Wrekin (17 October)  and one in Shropshire (31 October), to talk to you about these proposals, explain them to you and ask for your input to help  shape them in more detail. Your feedback is very important to help decide the final model. All adult patients or carers who use (or have used) MSK services in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin are invited to attend.

Please see below details of both focus groups, please register to attend:
