NHS notice of works at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

The PC has received notification from NHS of road works and new building construction at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital. They state:-

Currently, the main road onto the site is being widened and realigned to maintain two-way access for ambulances to the Emergency Department and a separate road for construction traffic within the construction site. These works are necessary to allow for construction traffic to enter, drop off materials, and exit the site safely and with as little disruption as possible to other hospital traffic. This means there will be some disruption to this area until the work is complete.

Subject to final approval, the main build at Royal Shrewsbury Hospital is expected to begin in the summer and is expected to take a number of years. For the duration of the build the current Outpatient entrance will be closed, and an alternative entrance will be provided.

Additional signage and wayfinding will be available to help patients and visitors navigate their way around the site. Patients and visitors should continue to check the Trust’s website for the most up-to-date information on accessing the hospital and parking arrangements.


Further details of the proposed changes, including a site map, can be found online and are on display in both hospitals.
