Update on NHS Future Fit

NHS Future Fit has received confirmation from the Department of Health and Social Care in England that capital funding is available for the programme. This means that these proposals, which aim to ensure the safety and sustainability of acute hospital services in Shropshire (which serve half a million people in north Powys, Shropshire, and Telford & Wrekin) can now proceed to public consultation, subject to final approval by NHS England.

Hospital services in Shropshire are vital for many of our communities in North Powys and Powys Teaching Health Board will be encouraging communities and partners to get involved and have their say when the Future Fit consultation is launched later this year. When the consultation starts, it will want to hear the views of people from across Shropshire, Telford & Wrekin and mid Wales on the two options:

  • Option 1:The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital becomes an Emergency Care site and the Princess Royal Hospital becomes a Planned Care site (This the CCGs’ preferred option)
  • Option 2:The Princess Royal Hospital becomes an Emergency Care site and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital becomes a Planned Care site

Under either option, both hospitals would have an Urgent Care Centre that is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. For more information visit the NHS Future Fit website at
