Welcome to the community website for the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital planning application submission

As part of its exciting plans for improving care for everyone, The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is progressing the Hospitals Transformation Programme (HTP).

A planning application has been recently submitted for the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital site and engagement events around our plans will begin in the next few weeks.

At the events members of the community, including residents and interested stakeholders, will be able to provide feedback on the proposals for the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

Our plans will deliver two thriving hospital sites.

Our HTP plans 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 enhanced urgent care service (A&E local model) will be available at the Princess Royal Hospital site.

The plans will mean the population of Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales will benefit from high quality, sustainable care and fewer delays for treatment, at two thriving hospital sites.

    Whilst the planning events will be focussed on the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, the proposals will benefit all the communities we serve and will be complemented by the significant multi-million-pound investment already underway at the Princess Royal Hospital site in Telford.

    We will continue to develop our services and invest at both Telford and Shrewsbury hospital sites, working closely with staff, local communities and other stakeholders to improve care for everyone.

    This website specifically relates to the planning application at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. 

    The designs provide accommodation at RSH, for the following:

    • Emergency Department
    • Urgent Treatment Centre
    • Critical Care Unit
    • Consultant-led Maternity Care
    • Children’s Inpatient Services
    • Children’s Surgery
    • Emergency Medicine including Acute Medicine
    • Consultant Neonatal Services
    • Oncology and Haematology ward
    • A new entrance, reception and hospitality offer as well as enhanced patient drop off facilities

    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.”
