The Princess Royal Hospital is a teaching hospital located in Apley Castle, Telford, England. It forms the Telford site of the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust and serves patients in Telford and Wrekin, the rest of Shropshire, and Powys, in conjunction with the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
Beds at Princess Royal Hospital:
- 330 inpatient beds including Intensive Care, Medicine, Surgery, Orthopaedics, Pediatrics and Rehabilitation
- 24 surgical day case beds
- 20 station renal dialysis unit (13 stations are currently in use, with a further seven available as the need for renal dialysis grows in future)
- 14-bed midwife-led maternity unit
The hospital was built in the late 1980s and is built in accordance with a standard pavilion design with all the wards being perpendicular to a long linear corridor. The building is situated just outside the Wellington area of Telford on a relatively spacious site, and all the departments are shared amongst two levels. According to the trust which runs the hospital, it is likely that the hospital will acquire the Children's, Maternity, Gynaecological and Breast Surgery services from the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital, and the Vascular and Epigastric and Colorectal Surgery will move over to the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
