Top Doctors issue plea to the people of Telford

Top Doctors issue plea to the people of Telford

Leading medics have signalled that a change in the leadership team at our local hospitals could make things worse, not better.

The letter comes just days after a petition started last week by Telford & Wrekin Council Leader, Cllr Shaun Davies, calling for the government to step in with a rescue plan.

“To the people of Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and mid-Wales,

We would like to thank the local people of Telford, Wrekin, Shropshire and Mid Wales for the overwhelming support that they have given recently to our staff. Both our staff and the local public have been distressed and concerned by recent National headlines. We would like to reassure our patients that their safe care is our priority. We welcome the independent review of our maternity department which will help us to learn from past events. Our accident and emergency departments are under enormous pressure with doctors, nurses and all other staff doing their best despite overwhelming demand.

We now have a clear vision for the future of our hospitals. This year, we have appointed many new consultants to the trust who want to make their home here and help us realise this vision.

We will continue to work and support our managers and members of the board to bring this to fruition. Safe and effective care in Telford, Wrekin, Mid Wales and Shropshire requires stable leadership; any major change to the Leadership team would be a misguided and unnecessary distraction at this key time.

Thank you for continuing to support your local hospitals.”

    “We now have a clear vision for the future of our hospitals.”
    That’s great for you. But we, the public, don’t. Has Future Fit been completed? What do you know that we don’t? Special measures please.
