Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals Trust’s (SATH) has set out a recommendation for the overnight closure of the Princess Royal Hospital’s A&E service as early as September.
The board papers recommends a plan that in the next year would see A&E services at the PRH ceasing and the A&E unit downgraded to an “urgent care centre” overnight.
The trust board will be meeting tomorrow (30 March) to discuss the plans.
Cllr Shaun Davies, Telford and Wrekin council leader said:
We will fight this tooth and nail – allowing to go ahead it will effectively start the downgrading of our hospital by the backdoor.

Telford United say they had warned officials that payments would be late and should not have been penalised.
But following a tribunal hearing in Birmingham, a specialist judge has ruled against the club.
Telford United are currently in the bottom half of the National North league.
A car was deliberately driven at a security worker as part of an attempted cash-in-transit robbery, according to police.
The G4S employee ran into a petrol station during the incident at a Tesco store on the Wrekin Retail Park in Telford in Shropshire, at about 8.40am this morning.
It's believed the car was parked near the petrol station for up to an hour before the attempted robbery.
Nothing was stolen and the car then drove off in the direction of the Ketley Brook roundabout.
It's been decided a single emergency department which will cover the whole of Shropshire should be based at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.Read the full story ›
