Councillors in Telford have unanimously called for a major shake-up of hospital services in Shropshire to be halted.
In a vote last night by Telford and Wrekin Council, both the ruling Labour group and opposition parties again backed a motion to stop the NHS's Future Fit programme.
Under the plan, the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital will be home to the county's main emergency unit, while the existing A&E at Telford's Princess Royal will be downgraded.
Maternity and women and children's services will similarly be centralised in Shrewsbury, while Telford will specialise in elective surgery, orthopaedics and specialist bariatric and breast services.
Earlier this month, Health Secretary Matt Hancock backed the scheme after the council had asked the government to review them.
Following the vote, the local authority's now going to officially make their case to ministers, following in the footsteps of Telford's Conservative MP Lucy Allan who also opposes the plan.
