Health bosses in Shropshire have recommended Emergency Care in the county to be at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, it was announced today.

The NHS Future Fit Programme Board published its recommendations on the future of hospital services for patients from Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Mid Wales.

Their plans, which are based on clinical and non-clinical evidence collected over the past three years, will come under scutiny during a public consultation.

This preferred option will be considered by Telford and Wrekin, and Shropshire Clinical Comissioning Groups shortly, who will formally decide if a public consultation can begin.

No formal decisions will be made until at least Summer 2017 once the formal consultation feedback is analysed and further detailed work is completed.
