With the ongoing national focus on managing the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic, Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals Trust have made changes to our Orthopaedic services to protect our patients and community, to minimise the risk of spreading the virus and increase the availability of beds for sick patients.

In keeping with the principles of social distancing the Trust has already issued advice regarding attendance and visitation to the hospitals. Although we fully understand and empathise that most of our patients struggle with significant pain and dysfunction we have currently halted all non-emergency surgeries and clinics to ensure that we minimise the risk of further spreading COVID-19.

Emergency Trauma Services are provided at both the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and have recommenced at SaTH following repatriation from Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Hospital on the 21st August 2020.
