From Thursday 16 April, Urgent Care Centres at Princess Royal Hospital in Telford and the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital will temporarily relocate to the Minor Injury Units in Whitchurch and Bridgnorth to form two Urgent Treatment Centres (UTCs)

People with major injuries and illnesses, such as head injuries and breathing difficulties should still attend A&E. The Emergency Departments at PRH and RSH remain open and fully operational 24-hours-a-day.

The two new UTCs will provide treatment for patients where their care needs are urgent, but non-life threatening. In Bridgnorth, the UTC will be open from 9am to 9pm, seven-days-a-week and be staffed by a rota of GPs and doctors and nurses from SaTH. There will be a GP-led service for minor illnesses and injuries including minor cuts, dislocations and back pain. An enhanced service will also be offered in Whitchurch, with opening hours of 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
