Our Hospitals are located in Shrewsbury and Telford and are brimming with exemplary teams of hardworking individuals.

It is a particularly exciting time to join the Trust as we have now started working collaboratively with the Virginia Mason Institute in Seattle. We are one of only 5 UK hospitals to receive this support, from what is regarded as the safest hospital in the world. This collaboration means our employees now benefit from the KPO (Kaizen Promotion Office) and value Stream work, gaining valuable help and guidance regardless of your level of expertise. It will give you a unique opportunity to make a difference and we hope you will want to be a part of our journey. More about this can be found under further links.


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 Dr Nigel Mike, Consultant in Elderly Care on 01952 641222 Ext 4425 or 4428, or Mr Ron Dodenhoff on 01952 641222 Ext 4486 with any questions you may have, or why not even arrange a visit. Please take the time to read any supporting documentation to really get to know us.
