Keep A&E and Stroke services in Shrewsbury

PEOPLE OF MONTGOMERYSHIRE AND SURROUNDING AREAS SAY “KEEP A&E AND STROKE SERVICES AT SHREWSBURY DON’T LET ANY MORE SERVICES BE MOVED TO TELFORD HOSPITAL.”

Why is this important?

The trust's medical director Edwin Borman told BBC Radio Shropshire "we need to have a countywide debate... we need to have serious decision-making" about the future of accident and emergency care in the county.
Shrewsbury and Telford both have A&E departments but the trust is concerned resources are spread too thinly to sustain both of them.
Mr Borman said that a trial to move urgent stroke care to Telford had resulted in patients getting the most important parts of their treatment more quickly.
People in Montgomeryshire and surrounding areas need services to remain in Shrewsbury as Telford is too far travel.
