The Trust that runs Shropshire’s acute hospitals is developing a new committee to improve experience for patients regardless of their background.

The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust (SaTH), which runs the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and the Princess Royal Hospital, Telford, is looking for members of the public to join staff from the Trust on its new Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity sub-committee.

Ruth Smith, Lead for Patient Experience at SaTH, said: “We want to make sure everyone at SaTH has a great patient experience, regardless of age, disability, gender reassignment, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation, marriage or civil partnership status, or pregnancy or maternity.

“We’re therefore looking for people who would like to help us to improve the patient experience for individuals within these ‘protected characteristics’.

“As a member of the Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity sub-committee, you would work with us to identify health inequalities and help us to develop action plans to tackle and resolve such issues.”

The closing date for receipt of applications is 5pm on Thursday 24 October 2019.
For more information, or for an application form, please contact the Patient Experience Team by emailing or calling 01743 261000, extension 3032 or 2503

Shropshire Rural Communities Charity (RCC) is currently seeking two additional people to serve on their grant panels which distribute small grants to voluntary and community groups in Shropshire.

This is a voluntary role. The grant panels meet around four times a year during the day (usually morning), in Shrewsbury. Travel expenses are reimbursed. Additional time is required to read applications and reach a preliminary judgement prior to discussion at the meetings but in total, attendance at meetings and preparation beforehand should not total more than 12 hours per year. Induction training will be given which will require attendance for approx. 3 hours.

Grant panel members will need to have access to a computer in order to receive applications electronically (but these do not need to be printed out).

Grant panels members are handling sensitive confidential information and will therefore also be required to sign a confidentiality agreement.

If anyone is interested, please contact Julia on 01743 237876 or
