Community Services

Community services allow people with heath needs to stay as independent as possible, often living in their own home.

Shropshire CCG works closely with and commissions services from Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust.

The Trust’s services include district nursing and health visiting.

The Community Trust also runs four community hospitals in Shropshire. There is a community hospital in Bishop’s Castle, Bridgnorth, Ludlow, and Whitchurch. There is also a Health Centre in Oswestry.

The Bridgnorth, Ludlow and Whitchurch hospitals have a Minor Injury Unit (MIU), as does Oswestry Health Centre. The MIUs offer help with a range of injuries and ailments including sprains and minor fractures, minor head injuries, burns and even emergency contraception. For MIU opening hours see Minor Injury Units.

The Community Trust provides some very specialist community care ranging from dementia care to allergy services (A-Z of services).
