Our Hospitals are located in Shrewsbury and Telford and are brimming with exemplary teams of hardworking individuals.
Shropshire is a beautiful county 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.
Both hospitals are based in Shropshire, a short 20 minutes’ drive apart. Shrewsbury has recently been named in the ‘Sunday Times Best Places to Live Guide’ as one of the top places to live in the country. It is a wonderful bustling place, with affordable housing, fantastic schools and great out-of-work activities for everyone.
