We would like to thank patients, members of the public, staff and partner organisations for the amount of time, effort and consideration that they have brought to the “Keeping It In the County” consultation – expressing support, raising concerns, attending public and stakeholder meetings, contributing to the development of clinical pathways, reviewing and developing the financial and workforce plans. We are committed to continue to work with patients, communities, staff and partner organisations in this ongoing work.
The Boards of Shropshire County PCT and NHS Telford and Wrekin have both approved recommendations put forward for the reconfiguration of local hospital services at their Board meetings today (Thursday 24 March). The proposals have also been considered and approved by the Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee which also met today, and consists of members of Shropshire Council and Telford and Wrekin Council.
The Joint Health Overview and Scrutiny Committee for Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin met this evening following the decision of the Hospital Trust and PCT Boards to go ahead with the changes to hospital services at the Princess Royal in Telford and the Royal Shrewsbury. The Joint Committee endorsed the decision made by the NHS Boards to ensure that health services will remain within the Shropshire and Telford and Wrekin area. However the Committee agreed to continue to monitor this work to ensure all the assurances provided are put in place.
