Bishop's Castle Community Hospital is a small 16-bed hospital in southwest Shropshire.
It has undergone a recent redevelopment and now has a new entrance area, garden room extension and exemplary palliative care suite that has received local, regional and even national recognition.
Outpatient services include:
The hospital provides care for local patients who do not need to be admitted to an acute hospital, or have been transferred from an acute hospital for rehabilitation or recovery following an operation, or who need palliative care.
Local GPs may admit patients into inpatient and outpatient services. Patients can also be transferred from acute hospitals for rehabilitation before returning home.
Please help us to protect our patients. If you have any symptoms including diarrhoea, vomiting, nausea, raised temperature, headache or aching limbs, please do not visit the hospital until you have been free of symptoms for 48 hours.
Please ensure you use the hand gel provided on entering and leaving wards and departments.
Hospital visiting times are 2.00pm-4.00pm and 6.00pm-8.00pm. Visiting outside of these hours is by arrangement with the nurse in charge.
The hospital has free, yet limited parking for visitors.
Bishop's Castle Hospital offers in-patients a choice of traditional food provided by the adjacent Coverage Care residential home. Special diets are catered for on request.
The hospital has protected mealtimes that protect patients from unnecessary and avoidable interruptions. This helps to enable our staff to provide patients with support and assistance with meals - placing the patients' mealtimes as a priority in their day.
Please be aware that visitors should avoid visiting friends and relatives during these times.
The patient wards are same-sex accommodation with bathrooms.
These are flexible by arrangement with the nurse in charge.
