The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust has received national approval of its Full Business Case (FBC) for the Hospitals Transformation Programme (HTP).

This final stage of the approval process releases the full £312m investment in local services and means implementation of a new model of healthcare in the county, including construction, can now begin.

Under the plans the Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) site will specialise in planned care and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital site (RSH) will specialise in emergency care.

This investment will help support the trust’s ambitions of delivering high-quality, sustainable services for patients in modern facilities.

The clinically-led programme will also provide faster access to the right care and clinicians and will result in shorter waiting times for planned surgeries and shorter hospital stays for patients.

The project is being led by Integrated Health Projects, a partnership between contractors Vinci and Sir Robert McAlpine.
