Welcome to the community website for works at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital
including the Hospitals Transformation Programme
Works are underway at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital site. These include the works under the Hospitals Transformation Programme (HTP), which is key to transforming health and care services across Shopshire, Telford and Wrekin and mid-Wales.
We are progressing through the final stage of national approval for the HTP development. We have received planning permission for the works at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
Our contractors, Integrated Healthcare Projects (IHP), have commenced enabling work on site. IHP is a member of the Considerate Contractors Scheme, which seeks to respect communities impacted by building work.
We recognise that during these development works we will need to work differnetly, and we are committed to minimising the impact on our neighbours patients and staff as much as possible.
Our plans will deliver two thriving hospital sites.
HTP will ensure we improve care for everyone with the Princess Royal Hospital site in Telford specialising in planned care, and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital site specialising in emergency care. In addition to this, a 24/7 urgent treatment service will be available at the Princess Royal Hospital site.
Construction is well underway for a new £24 million planned care hub at Princess Royal Hospital, which will provide more theatres and recovery areas as part of plans to transform patient care.
New modular building.
Harding has been set up at the front of the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital site on Mytton Oak Road.
We are proposing to construct a new two-storey building that will create much-needed additional wards. These will support patients with rehabilitation and recovery, increase our resilience during extreme pressures and also reduce delays and waiting times for our Emergency Department.
The HTP plans will see a reodelling of RSH to provide:
- Enhanced emergency department and emergency care facilities
- Expand ambulance provision
- State-of-the-art maternity facilities
- A new Critical Care Unit
- New Children’s Centre accommodation with critical care services
- A new hospital entrance with ehanced patient drop-off facilities, reception facilities and hospitality offer
Dr Rysdale Consultant in Emergency Care and Clinical Lead for the Hospitals Transformation Programme, said:
“Our clinicians agree that we cannot continue as we are. Every day we are moving one step closer towards realising our vision to deliver two thriving hospitals and better care for everyone.
“We are entering an exciting phase as we design the detailed patient pathways and are committed to engaging and working closely with our local communities, patients and colleagues to ensure we improve the experience for all the communities we serve.
“Our proposed designs for the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital site will offer high quality, sustainable care and an improved experience for patients. We are committed to being a good neighbour and we are keen to meet and work with local communities to hear your views and answer your questions.”
