Newport, Shropshire

I live in Newport, when my Mother had a stroke she was taken to Shrewsbury hospital. This meant my elderly Dad and I had a 40 minute journey to see the most important woman in our lives at her time of need. We also had to sit in the café for two hours in between visiting times. Once she was moved to Telford PRH things became so much easier, she was within reaching distance, I could visit during my lunch time I could pick my Dad up on the way home from work and visit together. People forget the outskirts of Shropshire, Newport to Shrewsbury is at least a 35 minute journey. I'd like to add both sets of staff were wonderful, but the location of Shrewsbury for people located in Newport in intolerable.
