Health leaders set the date for a decision making meeting on future of hospital services
Health leaders have announced that a decision making meeting on the future of local hospital services for people across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales will take place on 29 January 2019. This is subject to a further meeting with NHS England and a further meeting of the Future Fit Programme Board. The Future Fit Joint Committee of Telford & Wrekin and Shropshire Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) will meet on 29 January to make a decision on the two options designed to transform the hospital services provided at the county’s two hospitals:
Option 1: The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital becomes an Emergency Care site and the Princess Royal Hospital becomes a Planned Care site (This is the CCGs’ preferred option).
Option 2: The Princess Royal Hospital becomes an Emergency Care site and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital becomes a Planned Care site
Under either option, a 24-hour urgent care centre, outpatient services and tests would be available at both hospitals.
The Committee will be made up of 15 voting members, which includes three clinicians, two lay members and one executive from each CCG Governing Bodies, plus two voting independent clinicians and a voting independent chair.
