New Future Fit leaflet highlights the benefits to patients

rsz ff leaflet picA new leaflet that explains the changes to hospital services and what they will mean to patients and their families is now available to download here. Copies are also being distributed to the Princess Royal Hospital, Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, GP surgeries, local NHS organisations and patient and voluntary groups.

The leaflet provides key details of what services will be provided at the hospitals and how patients will benefit from improvements to their care. The difference between emergency and urgent care is explained and there is helpful advice on where to go for the right treatment. You can also find out more about how the changes will improve Planned Care, Women and Children’s Services, Stroke Services.

Now that a decision has been made, we can secure the £312m on offer from the Government and develop both hospital sites to provide state of the art facilities in which staff will be proud to work and patients will choose to be treated. No change will happen straight away - it will take around 5-6 years before the changes are fully implemented.
