Royal Shrewsbury Hospital

Volume 447: debated on Monday 12 June 2006

Daniel Kawczynski (Shrewsbury and Atcham) (Con): I present a petition about the Royal Shrewsbury hospital, which is a very important hospital that covers not just the residents of Shrewsbury but many people throughout the whole of Shropshire, and many in mid-Wales who come across the border to use our services. It has been signed by 2,968 of them and reads as follows:

The Petition of concerned residents of Shropshire and mid-Wales

Declares that there is a severe financial crisis in the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust that is threatening services at the Royal Shrewsbury hospital.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Secretary of State for Health to introduce legislation to provide funding to solve the financial crisis of the Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust, and to secure future services in full at the Royal Shrewsbury hospital.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.

To lie upon the Table.
