Cash boost

A £32 million cash injection will help upgrade buildings and bring 200 new clinical staff to Shropshire’s two main hospitals. New doctors, nurses, midwives and other clinical staff will be recruited to join the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (Sath).

Almost £15 million will be invested in recruitment in areas such as A&E, critical care, maternity and end of life care, £17 million spent improving ageing estates at both hospitals and £7 million in improvements in radiology, including a new CT scanner for PRH.

The cash has been found through savings and efficiencies identified by the trust. It will be the biggest ever investment in the county’s health workforce.
