We have also recently 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 employees can benefit from the KPO (Kaizen Promotion Office) and Value Stream work, gaining valuable help and guidance regardless of your level of expertise, it poses a unique opportunity to make a difference and encourage safe working.


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 with plenty of activities to choose from to suit a variety of interests and hobbies. 

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.

If you would like to find out more about the Emergency departments and our Hospitals, then we would invite you to contact Mr Subramanian Kumaran or Dr Adrian Marsh with any questions you may have on 01743 261082.
