Telford and Wrekin

in September 2016 I collapsed at home and ambulance was going to take me to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital because the surgery I needed was not done at the PRH. Because of the condition I was in the decision was made to divert to the PRH because I would not have survived the journey to Shrewsbury. The surgeon came from Shrewsbury and I had emergency surgery. I believe one of the proposals is to have just a stabilising unit at the PRH if that had been in place I would not be alive today. Also I have been to Telford A&E many times when ambulances have queued up with patients and even when they managed to get patients inside the are not allowed to leave them until they can be seen by drs or nurses and sometimes there are no beds at Telford or Shrewsbury
