We have successfully remedied the issues with our generator and therefore we have now fully reinstated admissions for maternity, neonates and children’s services at the Women and Children’s Unit at the Princess Royal Hospital, in Telford. We are grateful to our neighbouring hospitals who have supported us during this time.

Normal services have now resumed; if your baby or child needs urgent medical advice please contact your GP or 111 as usual, or 999 in an emergency. If you are in labour, have symptoms of labour, or you need to speak to someone in maternity services, please ring our maternity triage team as usual on 01952 565948.

We are sincerely sorry for the impact this has had on women and their families and thank them for their patience and understanding. We would also like to thank our valued staff, partners, as well as staff from neighbouring hospitals for the care and dedication they have continued to show to our service users throughout.
