A wildlife garden has been created at the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital for the benefit of patients, visitors and staff.  With an abundance of shrubs and trees the trust has continued to develop this area with the support of local businesses and volunteers. The trust has also worked with a local charity to support a project to reintroduce red mason bees, a declining solitary bee which is a good pollinator.

On NHS Sustainability Day in March 2017, over 1000 whips of native species were planted around the grounds of the Royal Shrewsbury Hospital and Princess Royal Hospital, Telford. This was thanks to teams of volunteers from public and private sector organisations as well as hospital staff, all coordinated through the Public Engagement team. Shropshire Wildlife Trust are providing long-term support for these tree planting projects.

The hospital planted two trees at 2 o’clock as part of its Sustainable Health and Care week celebrations in 2018. These were a Judas tree (Cercis siliquastrum) and a sunburst honey locust tree (Gleditsia tricanthos) at both of the hospital sites. Julia Clarke, the Trust’s Director of Corporate Governance and Sustainable Development lead, is the patron of these events.
