ⓘ Healthcare in Shropshire

From 1947 to 1974 NHS services in Shropshire were managed by the Birmingham Regional Hospital Board. In 1974 the Boards were abolished and replaced by Regional Health Authorities. Shropshire still came under the Birmingham RHA. Regions were reorganised in 1996 and Shropshire came under the West Midlands Regional Health Authority. From 1974 there was an Area health authority covering the county and from 1982 one District Authority. Two Primary care trusts were established in the county in 2002 one for Telford and the Wrekin and one for Shropshire. They were managed by the West Mercia Strategic health authority which was merged into NHS West Midlands in 2006.
