Venues throughout Shropshire are to host a number of pop-up stands where people can find out more about the NHS Future Fit programme throughout October.

The pop-ups will offer a chance to meet members of the team, ask questions, pick up information and discover how patients and members of the public can play a part in the programme, with a consultation due to start towards the end of the year.

They will also be able to see a newly prepared short animation which explains the programme. It has already been viewed nearly 10,000 times.

Dr Julian Povey, Clinical Chair of Shropshire CCG said:

“We want people to be as well informed as possible about the programme. We want everyone to understand the positive advantages that NHS Future Fit can provide with the creation of a new Emergency Department and two Urgent Care Centres, each able to see up to 80 per cent of those who currently go to A&E, in Telford and Shrewsbury.”

The pop-up stands will be at:

  • Monday October 10, 10am-2pm – Ludlow Market, Ludlow SY8 1AY 
  • Wednesday October 12, 10am-2pm – Bridgnorth Library, Listley Street, WV16 4AW
