Telford: Princess Royal Hospital

HOSPITAL TYPE: ACCIDENT AND EMERGENCY

HELIPAD STATUS: OPERATIONAL 

As part of the refurbishment of the helipad facility at Princess Royal Hospital, the HELP Appeal contributed in full to the installation of night lighting.

These important additions mean that flights after dark are now possible, allowing the safe transfer of critically ill patients, who need specialist care at a Major Trauma Centre if and when their condition deteriorates.

“We would like to thank the HELP Appeal for their tremendous support with the upgrade of our helipads at both the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford. The upgrade of both helipads has brought improved lighting and also allows larger helicopters to land.”

Chris Needham, Director of Estates and Facilities at The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust
