About NHS Future Fit

NHS Future Fit is about improving the hospital services provided at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital in Shrewsbury and the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford to meet the needs of our communities across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales.

After listening to the views of thousands of local people over the last four years, our doctors, nurses and other healthcare staff have developed a proposed new model of hospital care – for one hospital to become an Emergency Care site and the other hospital to become a Planned Care site, with a 24-hour Urgent Care Centre at both hospitals. There are two options on how we deliver this model of hospital care.

A public consultation on the proposals ran from 30 May to 11 September 2018. Find out more about the next steps.
