Philip Dunne welcomes A&E recruitment success at Princess Royal Hospital

27th November 2018

Philip Dunne welcomes Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust management's success in securing sufficient qualified clinicians to keep the A&E at Princess Royal Hospital open 24/7 as a positive first step out of special measures.

T5. Does the Minister agree that last week’s success by Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust management in securing sufficient qualified clinicians to keep the A&E and Telford’s Princess Royal Hospital open 24/7, rather than closing it overnight, is a positive first step on the journey out of special measures? [907877]

My hon. Friend is right. I welcome the trust’s recent announcement that it now has enough middle-grade doctors and nurses to keep the Prince Royal Hospital’s A&E open 24/7. It has been receiving some excellent support from NHS Improvement, and I hope that it will achieve similar success in improving the quality of care as that support continues.
