Rachel has called a meeting of the Alex Working Group to take place on Friday (March 26th) to discuss the Garden Suite Chemotherapy Unit.

Speaking ahead of the meeting, Rachel said:

“My position remains the same today as it did when I spoke out last month about the temporary relocation of the Garden Suite from the Alex to Kidderminster; when it is safe to do so the chemotherapy unit should be returned to Redditch.

“Temporary must mean temporary and I will make this explicitly clear to Trust bosses when I meet with them on Friday.

“Having visited the Garden Suite at the Alex myself, it really struck me how much it meant to patients that they could be treated in Redditch for something so traumatic as chemotherapy. Once it is safe to do so, I believe my constituents should once again receive their chemotherapy treatment at the Alex.

“We will fight Trust bosses all the way on this and I will do everything within my power to ensure the Garden Suite is returned to the Alex.”
