late one evening, being on my own and in constant pain i drove myself to the Princess Royal Hospital.After examinations and xray i was diagnosed with a gall stone blocking the bile duct causing jaundus.As the Telford hospital had no beds to spare Shrewsbury was going to admit me.I knew Telford specialised in the type of operation i needed.Luckily i stayed at Telford where i had an operation to remove the gall stone followed a week later my gall bladder removed.I was glad i did not have to drive all the way to up to Shrewsbury to use the Accident & Emergency facility. I was treated with the utmost care at Telford,we need to keep this service at all costs.
