Plans to revisit location options for the Shrewsbury Health and Wellbeing Hub

26 August 2022

In response to the statement issued by Shropshire Council regarding the Shrewsbury Health and Wellbeing Hub, please see below a statement from NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin:

Gareth Robinson, Director of Delivery and Transformation at NHS Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin, said:

“We welcome plans to revisit location options for the Shrewsbury Health and Wellbeing Hub. Concerns raised regarding the proposed site on Oteley Road have been taken into consideration and other potential options will now be reviewed by a wide range of stakeholders, including patients.

“The Shrewsbury Health and Wellbeing Hub is an exciting development that will bring significant investment into the town and surrounding areas. Crucially, it will help to address fundamental problems with our existing GP practice buildings, such as limited space, as well as unaffordable rent and maintenance issues. It will also allow us to expand our hard-working primary care workforce and retain those dedicated members of staff currently in our county.

“Working closely with Shropshire Council, as well as other key partners in this programme, we are committed to ensuring that the best possible solution is being progressed for our patients and the wider community. This includes getting the right clinical model for the population, ensuring it is accessible to patients, and that the building is environmentally friendly.

“We look forward to working with Shropshire Council on these next steps and sharing the outcome of the location review in the near future.”
