Shropshire is a beautiful County located between the West Midlands and North Wales. Whilst rural and home to the Shropshire Hills it is anything but sleepy. The County is bustling with idyllic towns including Shrewsbury, Oswestry, Bridgnorth and Ludlow, with plenty to do regardless of your interests. More information can again be found under further links.
We are ideally located between the north and the south making travelling around the UK extremely easy. As well as being only a short distance from major cities and busy transport links including Birmingham airport, our county also borders with beautiful north Wales which is abundant in outdoor activities, brilliant beaches, and thrilling scenery.
We want you to find out more about the department and our hospitals, and we invite you to contact us with any questions you may have and you can also arrange to visit the department
