Sir Robert Peel Community Hospital is open as normal today.

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service attended a fire at the neighbouring George Bryan Medical Centre last night, a separate building within close proximity operated by our partners Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Gavin Boyle, Chief Executive, said: “Our thanks to the work of the emergencies services last night to support NHS patients and all those NHS staff involved. Staff at Sir Robert Peel Community Hospital were able to shelter patients evacuated from the nearby George Bryan Medical Centre during the incident until they could be transferred to another Midlands Partnership NHS Foundation Trust facility.”
