£2 million boost for Shropshire A&E Units

Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is to receive an extra £2 million to upgrade local A&E facilities ahead of winter

The new funding is part of a £1.5 billion scheme announced by the Prime Minister to upgrade hospitals, accelerate hospital building and expand A&E facilities.

The extra money will allow the Trust to increase its A&E capacity, put enhanced infection prevention and control measures in place and make improvements to emergency care and urgent treatment services.
