- Health bosses have voted unanimously to base Shropshire's only A&E unit at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.
- It means that emergency care at The Princess Royal Hospital in Telford would be removed and downgraded to a planned care centre.
- A final decision was made on the 'Future Fit' plan at a fiery public meeting on Tuesday night after a consultation finished in September.
The proposal was to have a single accident and emergency unit for the county, supported by walk-in urgent care centres at both Shrewsbury and Telford.
The recommendation for Option One - for the A&E unit to be based in Shrewsbury, with Telford downgraded to a planned care centre, was unanimously approved by Shropshire and Telford & Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Groups.
The NHS Future Fit Programme says the decision will result in better care for patients and reduce the amount of time people have to stay in hospital.
But Telford and Wrekin Council has called on the Health Secretary to intervene:
The Future Fit programme also says that by having a separate planned care unit, patients will wait less time for their appointments and beds would be protected for planned operations, meaning it's highly unlikely that operations will be cancelled due to emergency admissions.
