Addressing the audience of representatives from more than a hundred companies, Paul Hinkins, of the Telford Business Board said: “It’s something that we need to try and save in Telford. There is a £28million Women and Children’s Unit that’s likely to be closed, and the A&E.

"We have an ageing working population in this borough. We desperately need to hang on to those two services. Health and wellbeing are all part of the package on people wanting to live here and, indeed, invest here.

"We must be able to offer that whole package and look after the individuals and families that are within the borough. This is not a competition about whether it’s Telford or Shrewsbury, it’s about making sure that we have both.”

Telford & Wrekin Council Leader Shaun Davies said: “Thank you to the Telford Business Board for backing our ‘PRH4Me’ campaign. Our A&E and our Women and Children’s Unit are at real risk. Telford Business Board, seeing the danger that may create for their businesses and also for their employees, have backed our campaign.”
