As a part of the CCGs emergency planning responsibilities we are required to have a 24 hour on call senior manager identified to respond to any incidents or issues that may arise outside of working hours. Should you need to contact us the details are below.
In the event of an emergency where you need to report something to the CCG and it is out of office hours, you can contact the CCG Director on Call by phoning a single point of contact at Shropdoc on 01743 454907.
Please note that Shropdoc holds more than one rota so specify it is the CCG Director on Call you need (NB the rota is shared across SCCG and T&W CCG).
The purpose of this grant is to support a practice nurse to undertake a project related to improving the recognition of patients with mental health problems and helping them to access appropriate treatment.
The grant is open to practice nurses registered with the NMC and working in the UK. They should have an interest and enthusiasm for mental health. They do not need to consider themselves highly experienced in the field or have had any previous mental health training. Read more and see how to apply here
