Event title: Public Meeting in Shrewsbury about A & E Departments in Shropshire
Venue: Shrewsbury Central Baptist Church, Claremont Street, Shrewsbury, SY1 1QG
Name: N/A
Email: N/A
Telephone: N/A
Event description: The A & E department at either the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital or the Princess Royal Hospital is threatened with closure.
The hospital itself will run down at the same time. This is bound to have a serious impact on local health care. Should Shrewsbury Hospital close it needs to be remembered that it may be impossible to go to an appointment in Telford by bus in one day! For a morning appointment, there aren’t buses early enough. For an afternoon appointment you can’t get home as the buses stop running early.
If we are to loose any A & E facilities what provision will be put into place with regards to patient transport and will there be guarantees that the many issues are addressed before any closures.
This is a public meeting and open to all.
