Keeping it in the County

Following our 14-week Keeping It In The County consultation on the future of local NHS services earlier this year, the Boards of the Trust and local Primary Care Trusts have agreed to move to the next phase of developing a plan that will see:

  • Most hospital services for most patients continuing exactly where they are now

  • Some services moving from Shrewsbury to Telford. Telford will become the main base for consultant-led maternity services, inpatient children's services, children's cancer services, inpatient gynaecology services and inpatient head and neck services

  • Some services moving from Telford to Shrewsbury. Shrewsbury will become the main base for inpatient acute general surgery and will continue to be the main base for adult cancer services 

More information about the decisions made can be found within this website.

Looking to the Future

We have launched a newsletter which aims to keep you informed about the changes to the local hospitals and tells you all about the different ways in which you can get involved in helping to shape the future of your local health services.

Read the latest edition of Looking to the Future here.

Below you can find the latest information on each affected service area and how we are working with patients, families/ carers and the public on issues such as transport and access, physical environrment and clinical services.
