£300million grant to Future Fit - Subject to consultation

March 28, 2018 9:53 AM

The Future Fit programme has lurched , suddenly back into life with the announcement today that the Urgent Care Centres

and a new A&E funding has been granted £300 million - subject to the consultation. As soon as that is ready I urge you all to take part in that. I will circulate it. This is very good news as our acute hospitals really cannot continue as they are.

The formal public consultation will ask for people's views on two options:

· Option 2 The Royal Shrewsbury Hospital becomes an Emergency Care site and the Princess Royal Hospital becomes a Planned Care site

(This the CCGs' preferred option)

Opti 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.
