Shropshire is the largest inland county in England.
Shrewsbury is the centre of services for the county of Shropshire and large parts of Mid-Wales.
We the undersigned:
1) argue that equity and fairness require that hospital services including emergency vascular surgery, major trauma, intensive care, coronary care and a specialised stroke unit should be available to people living in West Shropshire and Mid-Wales;
2) believe that Quality, Finance and Equity of access all indicate that the major hospital dealing with serious injuries and surgery should remain in Shrewsbury.
