The Trust

Our two Hospitals, The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and The Princess Royal Hospital, Telford are just a 20 minute drive apart.

This is a special time to join the Trust as we have successfully secured more than £312m of investment from the Government for the reconfiguration of our two hospitals with a decision due imminently.  NHS Future Fit proposes that one hospital provides emergency care services (including women and children’s inpatient services) and the other hospital provides planned care services. Both hospitals would have an Urgent Care Centre that is open 24-hours a day, seven days a week.

The proposed model of hospital care has been designed by members of the public and over 300 clinicians, GPs and social care professionals. Whichever option is approved, NHS Future Fit’s proposed model will ensure a wide range of hospital services will still be available at both hospital sites and, importantly, stay within the county.

The Area

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.

Telford & Wrekin is small urban borough. The majority of the borough’s 160,000 people live in Telford, which comprises several older towns such as Wellington, Ironbridge and Oakengates alongside newer residential areas. Telford is a major business centre and boasts 140 overseas companies. The borough also includes rural areas such as the Wrekin and the market town of Newport on the border with Staffordshire.
