Trust invites local residents to meet the builders

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust is inviting local residents, patients and interested people to meet our builders, Balfour Beatty to find out more about the development of the new Women and Children’s Unit at the Princess Royal Hospital.

People are invited to come along to one of our drop-in sessions which will be held at the hospital between 12-2pm and 6-7pm on Monday 25 February. These events will give people the opportunity to meet the team, view the latest plans and ask questions about the project.

Chris Needham, Director of Estates and Facilities and Technical Lead for the project, said: “We would welcome and urge anyone who wants to find out more and ask questions about the new Women and Children’s Unit to come along. Please call 01743 261183 or email if you are interested in attending.

“Now that building work is underway at the Princess Royal Hospital, we aim to keep any disruption to a minimum. However, we would ask patients, visitors and staff to bear with us over the next 18 months as we work hard to create what will be a fantastic new health facility.”

Opening in summer 2014, the new Women and Children’s Unit will provide health services for patients from across Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and mid Wales. It will be for children who need to stay in hospital overnight and will include a children’s outpatient department, children’s assessment unit and a children’s cancer and haematology unit. It will also be for women who require a consultant-led delivery, inpatient gynaecology services and babies who need special care.

Anyone wanting to attend is asked to register their interest by calling 01743-261183 or emailing
