The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is the main provider of acute hospital services for around half a million people in Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales.
Encompassing some of the most picturesque parts of England and Wales, the Trust’s catchment stretches from the Cambrian Mountains in the west to Newport and the fringes of the Black Country in the east. At over 5,000km2 this area approaches twice the size of the M25.
Our main service locations are the Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) in Telford and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) in Shrewsbury, which together provide 99% of our activity. Alongside our services at PRH and RSH we also provide community and outreach services such as:
- Consultant-led outreach clinics (including the Wrekin Community Clinic at Euston House in Telford).
- Midwife-led units at Ludlow, Bridgnorth and Oswestry.
- Renal dialysis outreach services at Ludlow Hospital.
- Community services including midwifery, audiology and therapies.
With a turnover in the region of £326million in 2015/16 we saw 61,315 elective & daycase spells; 54,839 non-elective inpatient spells; 6,659 maternity admissions; 407,108 consultant-led outpatient appointments; and 121,105 accident and emergency attendances.
In 2014 we began an exciting partnership with the Virginia Mason Institute In Seattle as part of our journey of improvement with our aspiration being to provide the safest and kindest care in the NHS.
