Community hospitals and health centres
Below you can find quick links to our community hospitals and to our key health centres
Shropshire Community Health NHS Trust runs the four community hospitals in Shropshire. These are important parts of the local communities in Shropshire and often mean that local people can get the health advice and care they need in a location much closer to their home, than having to travel to larger acute (main) hospitals, which are often further away.
Bishop's Castle Community Hospital
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.
Bridgnorth Community Hospital
Bridgnorth Community Hospital is a vibrant community hospital providing a range of health services - including day surgery procedures - for the people of south east Shropshire. The hospital is centrally located in the town and has recently undergone a major refurbishment.
Ludlow Community Hospital
Ludlow Community Hospital is a two ward, 40-bed hospital in southwest Shropshire. The hospital provides in-patient services for patients who need hospital care but do not need admission into an acute (main) hospital.
The hospital also has a maternity unit, minor injuries, physiotherapy and outpatient department offering a variety of child and adult clinics.
Oswestry Health Centre
Oswestry Health Centre opened in July 2011 as a multi-purpose outpatient healthcare centre. Services are provided by Shropshire Community Health Trust, South Staffordshire and Shropshire Mental Health Foundation Trust, The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust and Cambrian Medical Practice.
Whitchurch Community Hospital
The hospital provides in-patient services for local patients who need hospital care but do not need to be in an acute (main) hospital. On the rehabilitation ward, there are 32 beds for rehabilitation and palliative care for patients aged over 18. GPs may admit people to these beds and they are also available for the transfer of patients from acute hospitals for rehabilitation.
