Rachel Maclean, newly-elected MP for Redditch County, has demanded an urgent meeting with Secretary of State for Health, Jeremy Hunt. During her first week in Parliament this week she raised the issue of the Alexandra Hospital and is keen to be moving forward with her 12-point plan.

Rachel said: “One of my key priorities is to deliver on pledges and to understand how I, in my new role, can best help the situation to an acceptable conclusion for the good of everyone in the constituency.

“As part of my election campaign I pledged to a 12-point plan for the hospital and I am already starting to work to move that plan forward.”

Rachel will also be looking to progress another key priority which is to bring together all key stakeholders in Redditch on this critical issue.
