Visiting to all wards suspended at Shropshire’s acute hospitals

Visiting has been suspended to all wards at Shropshire’s two acute hospitals to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, which runs the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital (RSH) and Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) in Telford, said the decision to suspend visiting had not been made lightly and aims to reduce the number of people coming into the hospitals, to protect patients.

The changes are now in effect across all wards and will remain in place until further notice.

There are some exceptions to the restrictions which are:

  • Children’s Ward
  • Maternity
  • Neonatal unit
  • End of life care patients
