April 2021

 Resurfacing Works at Spout Lane, Broseley.

The work is programmed to commence on 1 April 2021 and is expected to last for up to 6 days. The normal working hours will be between 07:00am to 17:00pm Monday to Friday.

Unfortunately, because of the nature of the works, it will be necessary to close the road to traffic for the duration of the works during the working hours mentioned. Every reasonable effort will be made to complete the work as soon as possible.

During the road closure, traffic will be diverted via the local roads by a fully signed diversion route.

Inevitably there will be some disruption during these works, for which we apologise in advance. Access to frontages will be maintained up to the closure.

For the Residents and Business Owners who are in the vicinity of the works, further notification will be provided through letter drops prior to the start date.

Coronavirus - STAY ALERT

Broseley Libraries

11

May 2020

Stay alert

We can all help control the virus if we all stay alert. This means you must:

  • Stay at home as much as possible
  • Work from home if you can
  • Limit contact with other people
  • Keep your distance if you go out (2 metres apart where possible)
  • Wash your hands regularly

Self-isolate if you or anyone in your household has symptoms.

We must stay alert, control the virus and save lives

You should work from home if you can, and only go to work if you must.

We now need to stress that anyone who can’t work from home, for instance those in construction or manufacturing, should be actively encouraged to go to work.

So you should avoid public transport if at all possible – because we must and will maintain social distancing, and capacity will therefore be limited.

So work from home if you can, but you should go to work if you can’t work from home.

And to ensure you are safe at work we have been working to establish new guidance for employers to make workplaces COVID-secure.

And when you do go to work, if possible do so by car or even better by walking or bicycle. But just as with workplaces, public transport operators will also be following COVID-secure standards.

And from this Wednesday, we want to encourage people to take more and even unlimited amounts of outdoor exercise.

You can sit in the sun in your local park, you can drive to other destinations, you can even play sports but only with members of your own household.

You must obey the rules on social distancing and to enforce those rules we will increase the fines for the small minority who break them.

And so every day, with ever increasing data, we will be monitoring the R and the number of new infections, and the progress we are making, and if we as a nation begin to fulfil the conditions I have set out, then in the next few weeks and months we may be able to go further.

In step two – at the earliest by June 1 – after half term – we believe we may be in a position to begin the phased reopening of shops and to get primary pupils back into schools, in stages, beginning with reception, Year 1 and Year 6.

Our ambition is that secondary pupils facing exams next year will get at least some time with their teachers before the holidays. And we will shortly be setting out detailed guidance on how to make it work in schools and shops and on transport.

And step three - at the earliest by July - and subject to all these conditions and further scientific advice; if and only if the numbers support it, we will hope to re-open at least some of the hospitality industry and other public places, provided they are safe and enforce social distancing.

Throughout this period of the next two months we will be driven not by mere hope or economic necessity. We are going to be driven by the science, the data and public health.

Urgent Care Centres at RSH and PRH planned to relocate on Thursday 16 April

Urgent Care Centres at RSH and PRH planned to relocate on Thursday 16 April

The NHS is currently facing an unprecedented situation regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. Health services in Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin are taking measures to provide the safest care and best possible experience for patients during this time.

From Thursday 16 April, Urgent Care Centres (UCCs) at Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) in Telford and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) will temporarily relocate to the Minor Injury Units (MIUs) in Whitchurch and Bridgnorth to form two Urgent Treatment Centres (UTCs).

People with major injuries and illnesses, such as head injuries and breathing difficulties should still attend A&E. The Emergency Departments at PRH and RSH remain open and fully operational 24-hours-a-day, however, these changes will allow us to free up capacity to support those with more serious illnesses and injuries who need the level of care offered at hospital.

The two new UTCs will provide treatment for patients where their care needs are urgent, but non-life threatening. In Bridgnorth, the UTC will be open from 9am to 9pm, seven-days-a-week and be staffed by a rota of GPs and doctors and nurses from SaTH. There will be a GP-led service for minor illnesses and injuries including minor cuts, dislocations and back pain. An enhanced service will also be offered in Whitchurch, with opening hours of 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.

The county’s other two MIUs, at Ludlow and Oswestry, remain open for minor injuries and illnesses. The opening hours of these units can be found at www.shropscommunityhealth.nhs.uk/miu. The two MIUs and the new look UTCs at Bridgnorth and Whitchurch offer a walk-in service and do not require appointments or referral. The MIU in Welshpool is currently appointment only and contact details can be found on the Powys Teaching Health Board website.

Dr Arne Rose, Medical Director at Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH), which runs RSH and PRH, said: “The safety and wellbeing of all of our patients is our priority. These temporary changes will make sure we are looking after patients who need our care for urgent but non-life threatening situations, minor injuries and illnesses, and also those that need more specialist care in our A&E departments.

“We know some patients have expressed concern about taking up the time of our doctors and nurses in our hospitals at this difficult time and we are very grateful for their support. It is very important that people continue to access urgent care when they need it and we hope the availability of the Urgent Treatment Centres encourage them to do so.”

Jane Povey, Medical Director at Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust, said: “We would like to thank people in advance for their understanding and reassure them that these changes are temporary. They are being managed in a planned way with the best interests of local people and our staff in mind.”

Patients with coronavirus symptoms should follow the government advice by staying at home and using the NHS 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do. NHS111 will direct those people with symptoms requiring healthcare support to attend the emergency departments at either of the two hospitals.

Anyone requiring medical assistance outside of the opening hours of the two UTCs and two MIUs should call NHS 111 and in an emergency, 999.

Among other measures taken by SaTH to help reduce the spread of coronavirus are the suspension of visiting at both hospitals and a restriction in the number of entrances open to the public at the two hospitals.

You can play your part by following the Government’s advice:

  • Only go outside for food, health reasons or work (but only if you cannot work from home)
  • If you go out, stay 2 metres (6ft) away from other people at all times
  • Wash your hands as soon as you get home
  • Do not meet others, even friends or family that do not live with you

Please remember that you can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms

  • The Urgent Treatment Centres will open at 9am on Thursday, 16th April until further notice. However, anyone seeking treatment for minor illness or injury at either RSH or PRH in the days following the suspension will still be treated.
  • The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust runs the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital, Telford, and is the main provider of acute hospital care for almost 500,000 people from Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales. Patients come to us from Telford, Shrewsbury, Ludlow, Oswestry, Bridgnorth, Whitchurch, Newtown and Welshpool in Powys.
  • The Trust continues to work with its partners in health and social care in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales to develop patient-focused services that meet the needs of our communities.
  • If you have any feedback about local healthcare, independent support and signposting is available from Healthwatch Shropshire, Healthwatch Telford and Wrekin and Powys Community Health Council (CHC):

April 2020

Coronavirus (COVID-19): what you need to do

  • Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading

    Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

    You should only leave the house for very limited purposes:

  • shopping for basic necessities, for example food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
  • one form of exercise a day, for example a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
  • any medical need, including to donate blood, avoid or escape risk of injury or harm, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
  • travelling for work purposes, but only where you cannot work from home

Important

These reasons are exceptions – even when doing these activities, you should be minimising time spent outside of the home and ensuring you are 2 metres apart from anyone outside of your household.

How to stop infection spreading

There are things you can do to help reduce the risk of you and anyone you live with getting ill with coronavirus.

Do

  • wash your hands with soap and water often – do this for at least 20 seconds

  • use hand sanitiser gel if soap and water are not available

  • wash your hands as soon as you get home

  • cover your mouth and nose with a tissue or your sleeve (not your hands) when you cough or sneeze

  • put used tissues in the bin immediately and wash your hands afterwards

Don't

  • do not touch your eyes, nose or mouth if your hands are not clean

It is very important that everyone continues to follow the official advice

You can spread the virus even if you don’t have symptoms.

IF YOU GO OUT, YOU CAN SPREAD IT. PEOPLE WILL DIE

ACT LIKE YOU’VE GOT IT, ANYONE CAN SPREAD IT

ANYONE CAN GET IT, ANYONE CAN SPREAD IT

Information on bus cleansing and timetables

Broseley

March 2020

Information on bus cleansing and timetables.

Clearly this is an unprecedented situation we find ourselves in and we are closely monitoring the situation and liaising with bus operators on a daily basis to ensure they are able to maintain the current levels of operation as per their registered timetables. However where service reductions (eg reductions in frequency) are necessary, we will try & keep these to a minimum & ensure everyone is notified.

please see below some major bus/coach companies within Shropshire & detailed the levels they are taking in order to keep their drivers & passengers as safe as possible & their vehicles clean:
.
Lakeside Coaches – Provision of hand gels on board vehicles where available, wiping down the buses when they arrive at the depot, putting up posters on the vehicles, they are looking to use air bombs on the vehicles and the use of ambient air conditioning, staff have been notified via email on best course of action to prevent the spread of the virus.

Elcocks Coaches - Drivers have been informed to wash hands before and after driving and all staff to adhere to advanced hand washing and hygiene practices

like other bus operators the health and wellbeing of their customers and employees is their primary concern and they are monitoring the ongoing Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation. They already have extensive cleaning regimes in place that maintain high levels of hygiene and are enhancing them to concentrate on specific touch-points on both the vehicles and their premises.


All of their drivers have access to hand sanitiser gel in their depots and garages. Where hand-gel is already being supplied in depots and garages it will continue to be, subject to the check that it is over 60% alcohol based.

Government Guidance on Social Distancing (COVID-19)

Broseley

19

March 2020

Government Guidance on Social Distancing

We are advising those who are at increased risk of severe illness from coronavirus (COVID-19) to be particularly stringent in following social distancing measures.

This group includes those who are:

Note: there are some clinical conditions which put people at even higher risk of severe illness from COVID-19. If you are in this category, next week the NHS in England will directly contact you with advice the more stringent measures you should take in order to keep yourself and others safe. For now, you should rigorously follow the social distancing advice in full, outlined below.

People falling into this group are those who may be at particular risk due to complex health problems such as:

  • People who have received an organ transplant and remain on ongoing immunosuppression medication
  • People with cancer who are undergoing active chemotherapy or radiotherapy
  • People with cancers of the blood or bone marrow such as leukaemia who are at any stage of treatment
  • People with severe chest conditions such as cystic fibrosis or severe asthma (requiring hospital admissions or courses of steroid tablets)
  • People with severe diseases of body systems, such as severe kidney disease (dialysis)

What is social distancing? Social distancing measures are steps you can take to reduce the social interaction between people. This will help reduce the transmission of coronavirus (COVID-19).

They are:

  1. Avoid contact with someone who is displaying symptoms of coronavirus (COVID-19). These symptoms include high temperature and/or new and continuous cough;
  2. Avoid non-essential use of public transport, varying your travel times to avoid rush hour, when possible;
  3. Work from home, where possible. Your employer should support you to do this. Please refer to employer guidance for more information;
  4. Avoid large gatherings, and gatherings in smaller public spaces such as pubs, cinemas, restaurants, theatres, bars, clubs
  5. Avoid gatherings with friends and family. Keep in touch using remote technology such as phone, internet, and social media.
  6. Use telephone or online services to contact your GP or other essential services.

Everyone should be trying to follow these measures as much as is pragmatic. For those who are over 70, have an underlying health condition or are pregnant, we strongly advise you to follow the above measures as much as you can, and to significantly limit your face-to-face interaction with family and friends.
