A Shropshire hospital has opened its doors following a £2.7m redevelopment.

The project at Robert Jones and Agnes Hunt Orthopaedic Hospital, near Oswestry, has created a new hi-tech check-in system and reception area.

The hospital's restaurant has also been extended, while a new cafe has been built, which will be staffed by volunteers.

The specialist orthopaedic centre has recently treated several Team GB Olympic and Paralympic athletes.

New conference facilities have also been added as part of the scheme, while the car park has been revamped, including charging points for electric vehicles.

Chief executive Wendy Farrington-Chadd said the project had depended on local contractors and the support of the community.
