Why Now?

Two years after maternity and childrens services were transferred from the Alex to the Worcestershire Royal Hospital, the people of Redditch have not seen the improvement to services they were promised by health bosses.

A game changer for me is the £20billion the NHS is set to recieve – the biggest cash boost in the health service’s history.

 

What's Your Plan?

We need to look again at where and how services are provided, including a return of a range of maternity and paediatric services to the Alex, and more options for the local population to use Birmingham services, which are more accessible than Worcester. If the problem is shortage of staff, then let’s build a medical school to create our own local workforce, ready to work in our county.

Worcestershire is one of the fastest growing local economies in the whole country, and so we need to plan for the future and I believe all options must remain on the table.

What Next?

Over the next few weeks and months I will be meeting with local health bosses, the Health Secretary and all stakeholders in Redditch to discuss the way forward.

I am 100% committed to this campaign and delivering real improvements to the healthcare Redditch residents recieve.
